Hi 350 WA Friends – In case any of you fancy a trip to Seattle, I wanted to let y’all know about the climate march and actions that are happening here on October 29th. Details below! – alec


Hi all
On October 29th, young people and adults alike are taking to the streets of Seattle to call out the largest climate polluters in our city.

Can you join us on the streets this Friday, October 29th?

What: Fossil Free Future: March & Action
When: Friday, October 29, meet at 11am; march ends at 130pm
Where: Meet at Waterfront Park, 1401 Alaskan Way, Seattle 98101

The march is part of a Global Day of Action, with climate activists all over the world taking to the streets to call out the funders and enablers of climate chaos. (Check out this OpEd from 30 youth-led organizations calling for the day of action in the US.) In Seattle, a youth organizing committee made up of middle schoolers, high schoolers and college students has pulled together an exciting plan that will see us march to the front doors of Chase, Liberty Mutual, and City Hall

  • We’ll march to JPMorgan Chase’s PNW HQ where we will build a climate memorial and stage a die-in to commemorate all that has already been lost to the climate crisis.

  • At Liberty Mutual’s regional HQ, we’ll take action to call out their insurance of Trans Mountain and other toxic fossil fuel projects.

  • At City Hall, we’ll demand that the Seattle City Council take action to address the climate crisis by passing the Solidarity Budget and stopping building new homes with fossil fuel heating.

To join the action, please reply to this message and I can add you to the signal group we’re using for organizing.

You can also RSVP on the Facebook event here and/or the Action Network event here.
This will be a family-friendly event and the march will be youth-led and youth-centered. At each of the three locations, we will take creative and collective action, as well as hear from powerful speakers and performers.

We hope that you will join us! – alec
