In the tradition of People’s Movement Assemblies, Got Green and Community to Community are hosting the 2nd PNW Just Transition Assembly to continue developing a long term regional strategy for the Next Economy in the Pacific Northwest. We plan to have 200 participants from Vancouver BC, Oregon, and Washington. The Assembly will be a bilingual space in both Spanish and English, with political education panels and tracks, healing and arts space, shared meals and music.
* Be advised space for the PNW Just Transition Assembly is intended for People of Color and organizations/collectives/groups led by People of Color. The space will be majority People of Color with some White Allies who will have received personal invitations. We encourage Youth, QTPOC, and folks with disabilities to attend and will create an inclusive, accessible, and empowering space to the best of our ability.
* We suggest sliding scale $10- $100 for registration, and no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. The assembly will be translated in both ENGLISH and SPANISH. REGISTER LINK
In 2030, will Washington try to build a border wall and make California pay for it?
Refugees, immigration, terrorism, and open borders have become heated topics in the national conversation. But if current trends, like California’s drought, continue, that discussion may soon get even more urgent—and perhaps a lot uglier, even in the polite Pacific Northwest.
History shows that climate change leads to massive movements of people, and we’ve now entered what might be the fastest period of climate change in earth’s history. How will it affect the human populations of North America? Who will move where? How will it affect human rights? And is the Northwest really the relatively safe haven it’s commonly thought to be?
