This Earth Day, hundreds took to the streets for Seattle’s Green New Deal!

With eye-catching art, inspiring speakers, a flash mob, and song, we delivered a powerful message to Seattle City Electeds: act now to seriously accelerate Seattle’s transition off fossil fuels, create green union jobs, and invest in climate resilience.

This summer, Seattle City Council can pass a Green New Deal policy that sets timelines for our city’s large buildings (over 20k sq ft) to upgrade for clean energy and energy efficiency. This would be a huge win for our communities and climate: eliminating 10% of Seattle’s climate pollution, creating thousands of green union jobs, and bringing life-saving cooling to homes and workplaces across Seattle.

But with big corporations like Amazon actively opposing even the weak version of this policy, it will take a powerful grassroots organizing to ensure City Leaders prioritize our healthy climate future over big corporate profits!

So let’s keep building together – here’s 3 things you can do this week to keep the Earth Day momentum going and grow the grassroots power we need to win!

1. Tell City Leaders to act now and move Seattle off fossil fuels this decade by sending a letter to Mayor Harrell.

2. Amplify the Earth Day Action video on social media! Sharing this awesome video with your friends and networks helps reach new supporters, which is key to growing the grassroots base we need to win. Here’s the links for amplifying on InstaTwitter, and Facebook.

3. Tune into tomorrow night’s Green New Deal Welcome Call. We’re so excited to be co-hosting with our partners UNITE HERE Local 8, the NW hotel & hospitality workers union.

Whether you were in the streets this weekend or are just catching up with the video now, we want to connect with you! Show up to meet other climate justice supporters, learn about the Electrify Seattle and Living Hotels campaigns, and how you can take action for Seattle’s Green New Deal.
