What to do – Plan to attend a neighborhood canvas in the 45th or one of the special election events hosted by Washington Conservation Voters (WCV) this month.

Why it’s important – We must make sure our state government can resist federal environmental rollbacks AND make real environmental progress here in Washington by electing a pro-environment majority in the Senate.

Regardless of what district you live in, this election is going to take all of us working together as Washingtonians, fighting for environmental progress and justice.

How to take action – Lots of great options!

1. Sign up to help identify likely voters in the 45th this weekend (April 8) in Bothell.

DAPL Public Comment Now Open – until Feb 20

Now until Feb. 20 is the public’s chance to push for a full review of the pipeline’s climate impacts. Here’s what to do.

Update 01/27/2017: An email on Thursday from Timothy Vail, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Military Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works), said public input is being accepted: “I assure you, Mr. Owen continues to accept comments at the present time.”

It’s been a tumultuous few days for anyone following the ongoing battle against the Dakota Access pipeline. Within the course of just over a week, the project’s backers tried to get a judge to cancel environmental review of the project, environmental review officially began, and, on Jan. 24, President Trump issued a memorandum calling for the Army Corps of Engineers to ditch the Environmental Impact Statement process and approve the pipeline.

Things look bleak, but it’s unclear whether Trump’s order will actually have any effect.   Read More…
