About this Event

Join us to build bridges between communities, organizations, generations, and ideas for a just and sustainable future. Come help us find answers to,

  • What does environmental (in)justice look like?
  • How can we join together to collaborate on climate solutions?
  • What can YOU do?
  • What does your version of a just and sustainable future look like?

Learn and contribute your ideas to the conversation! We will focus on environmental justice and the youth response to climate change. There will be interactive speakers and local groups to network and learn from.

Keynote Speaker

James Rasmussen - Duwamish Tribal Council member for 26 years and former Executive Director for the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition. James has been an active voice in environmental, habitat, and community issues along the Duwamish River and in the region for 30+ years. One of his primary concerns in this role has been elevating those most impacted by climate justice: low-income community members, people of color, youth and elders.
