As you know CarbonWA Policy, Advocacy and Communications teams have been busy this legislative session mobilizing support for key legislation that support our vision: Net zero carbon emissions and a prosperous, healthy future. Join us (and our kids!) in Olympia on April 11, when young people from around Washington state will be gathering to demand climate action from our elected officials. We need you to join us there to show our lawmakers that climate change is an urgent issue that must be acted on now. Although this is a youth-led event, it is not just for youth — we want everyone to join us!
The day will start with trainings and workshops, followed by a rally, and ending at the legislative building where we will demand that our legislators vote for climate action. Come and enjoy great food, conversation, and advocacy as we come together to fight for climate action. When you RSVP, please make sure to list that you are part of the Carbon Washington Group and email our Advocacy Coordinator, Katsi@carbonwa.org to confirm.
Can’t make it to the event but still want to take action? Support us by sharing the Facebook event and submitting a letter to your elected official telling them who you are and why you support bold, equitable action on climate.
Interested in speaking at the rally? Let us know on the RSVP form! Because this event aims to center the voices of individuals on the frontlines of climate change, we especially want young speakers from Indigenous communities, communities of color, low-income families, or who identify as part of the LGBTQ community.
In other CarbonWA news, specific bills we are watching this week in Olympia: HB 1110 Clean Fuel Standard, SB 5811 Low Emissions Vehicles expanded like California’s, and SB 5947 Funding Sustainable Farming methods.
