OCA Endorses ‘Washington Can’t Wait’ Campaign

Dear OCAers,

WA Can't Wait graphic

We are proud to have signed on at our last meeting to endorse the work that Futurewise’s WA Can’t Wait Campaign is doing in the state legislature this year to update the Growth Management Act to ensure that our counties and cities are planning for the impacts of climate change, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to protect farms and forests. 

Will you join us in supporting this important work? Here are a few ways you can learn more and plug in:

  1. Join the WA Can’t Wait Campaign State-Wide Advocate call on November 22nd from 6:30-7:30 PM. Get an update on the campaign, learn about different ways to get involved, meet other advocates from across the state, and have the chance to ask Jamie, the campaign’s lead organizer, any questions you might have about advocating in the state legislature for these priorities.

  2.  Join the WA Can’t Wait Campaign fromDecember 6th to 10thfor five days of exciting advocacy for land-use policies that will address climate change, the housing crisis, and protect forests and farmland from illegal development. By pledging to take action during the WA Can’t Wait Week of Action, you will receive emails with easy advocacy actions to contact your legislators about the campaign’s legislative priorities, as well as get access to the week’s virtual educational events (calendar of events coming soon!)

We need all hands on deck to ensure Washington is planning for a more just, resilient and livable future. Thank you for joining us in supporting this important work. 

In hope,
