Join us for a rally and march on September 21 in solidarity with the People's Climate March in NYC calling on the U.N. Climate Summit to take urgent and serious action to stop climate change.
Every day a new report highlights the imminent disaster posed by the climate crisis and continued reliance on oil and coal.
We call for a massive expansion of clean energy that would create green union jobs, as a solution to both the environmental and economic crises.
We can't solely rely on elected officials. We must build a powerful grassroots movement that demands a rapid transition away from fossil fuels.
The Puget Sound, a region with high fossil fuel pollution, has four of the state’s five highest cancer rate counties – Whatcom, Pierce, Snohomish and Skagit. Rather than curbing pollution, our communities face a number of new fossil fuel projects that threaten the lives of people and the environment - explosive oil trains, coal trains, and the construction of coal export terminals.
The false dichotomy between jobs and the environment must be rejected. Let's stand together – environmentalists, native tribes, and labor to demand investment in renewable energy not fossil fuels. We need to create and expand work that promotes healthy communities and protects the environment for future generations. We need jobs that pay living wages and allow families to live with dignity. We need to fight to ensure there is a just transition for those workers whose jobs are replaced by a new energy economy.
