About this event

As a national leader in climate justice, Washington state has policies in place, including the Climate Commitment Act to cut carbon pollution and invest in accelerating projects benefiting communities. This fall, the policy faces a potential repeal, impacting the ability to protect our air quality, prevent forest fires and improve transportation options. 

Join us on this call to hear from organizations working in communities across the state to educate voters on this timely issue before they are asked to vote on it later this year. This conversation is co-hosted by Seattle Foundation, Stolte Family Foundation and Philanthropy Northwest.
