How a Climate Scientist Came to Love Taming Bigfoot

Nov 29, 7:00pm - Nov 29, 8:30pm

El Centro de la Raza
2524 16th Ave S
Seattle, WA  98144 Map

SSCAN is excited to support 1 Sustainable Planet and Taming Bigfoot in Seattle!! We're grateful for their leadership in helping us all reduce our carbon footprints.

Taming Bigfoot in Seattle is a fun way for committed activists and others to learn how best to reduce our carbon footprint. Team sign-ups are underway for this friendly, citywide competition. The competition, from February through April, is modeled after the first Taming Bigfoot, in which teams of Jefferson County residents significantly reduced their climate impact last year.
Learn more on Nov. 29 about Taming Bigfoot in Seattle from its creator, retired NASA climate scientist Bob Bindschadler. The competition and Bindschadler’s talk are co-sponsored by SSCAN.

Rally for Tenant Rights

Rally for Tenant Rights

Dec 5, 11:00am - Dec 5, 2:00pm

Westlake Park, Seattle [tentative]

On December 5th, landlord associations are holding a conference with 1,500 landlords from throughout the state to learn how to use current law against tenants. These same landlord associations spend thousands of dollars buying local elections, lobbying against tenant rights on the local and state level, and suing cities to block tenant rights. We will rally at the same time as the conference at Westlake Park (tentative location). Join us as we share our stories, learn our rights as tenants, and rally for expanded tenant protections!

If your organization would like to co-sponsor this event (or if you have any questions), please email xochitl@washingtoncan.org

Keep the Oil In the Soil! Stop the nations largest oil terminal

Keep the Oil In the Soil! Stop the nation's largest oil terminal

Jan 18, 11:00am - Jan 18, 2:00pm

King Street Station
76 S King St
Seattle, WA  98104 Map

Please wear orange to symbolize your opposition to oil trains, and your support of Don Orange- newly elected vancouver Port Comissioner!

Governor Inslee has 60 days to stop the largest crude oil by rail terminal in North America!

The proposed Vancouver oil terminal would handle a staggering 360,000 barrels of crude oil each day. That’s 42% of the capacity of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. The terminal would bring 5 more explosive oil trains per day through the Columbia River Gorge. Further, it would sharply increase the oil barge and ship traffic in the columbia river, risking oil spills that could kill large numbers of our already dwindling salmon population.

Don Orange, a recently elected port commissioner in Vancouver has promised to cancel the lease
with the oil terminal. However, if Inslee approves the project, Don Orange will be unable to cancel
the lease. That’s why we need you to show up, and help us tell Governor Inslee: Stop the largest oil
terminal in North America!

This summer, we got a taste of what climate change can bring. We cannot allow new fossil fuel infrastructure to be built. Come out to this rally/press conference to tell Governor Inslee, he needs to deny this terminal now!
