My Team: S2 Community!

Hello all! As many of you know, I have been working with Sustainable Seattle for the past three years. In this time, I have learned so much about our region, our world, and what it will truly take to change course for the sake of our ecosystem, ourselves, and our future generations. We are facing serious, socially-exacerbated disasters (like COVID), famine, displacement, hardship... but it doesn't have to be this way. 

 So much of our resiliency depends on interpersonal systems. How well we are able to support one another on a neighborhood level, person-to-person. How much we are able to come together

I often hear from people who have diminished hope - but as someone who is in this work every day, I have to say I have so much hope! I have a first-hand seat alongside people who are healing our world and our communities. My colleagues are working to mitigate waste, halt displacement, protect reproductive rights, organize caregivers and migrants, and so much more. The changes are happening.

Sometimes it is frustratingly slow, but there is an easy solve for that frustration: show your support. Support this work, support the efforts of those who are pushing against a massive and often relentless pressure of status-quo, show them you are with them. 

A first step is helping me reach (or exceed!) my goal of raising $2000 from my friends and family over the next few weeks - to get us through this disaster, in a way which will help our region get through the next, to the point where we are so resilient, healed, and vibrant that we aren't facing disaster at all. 

Seattle is a national leader in sustainable urbanism. Our communities support and incubate groundbreaking sustainability policy, activism, and design innovation. Public, private, and nonprofit sectors center around leadership in sustainable practice, helping to build a resilient future. We are a city of game-changers, of movers and shakers, of innovators, and of thought leaders.
