Join livestream kickoff watch parties for a Green New Deal, Tuesday, February 5, from 7-8:30 pm at the Clallam County Courthouse (use the after-hours entrance west of the flagpoles) or in Port Townsend at Rosewind Commons.
The most recent scientific consensus, including the federal government’s own National Climate Assessment, indicates a very short window for a transformation to a clean-energy economy. In response, activists are calling for a Green New Deal to transform our economy in a rapid and just manner, and Senator Ed Markey and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are poised to release Green New Deal legislation in the coming days.
Early support for an ambitious bill like this is crucial, and climate activists plan to send a strong message to their members of Congress in the coming weeks.
The Sunrise Movement, credited with putting momentum behind the Green New Deal concept, will lay out their game plan via livestream at this event, which will be viewed by thousands of people at more than 400 watch parties around the country. Participants can register for this event at https://actionnetwork.org/events/green-new-deal-kickoff-watch-party?referrer=olympic-climate-action-2&source=direct_link. For more information, contact OCA at email@example.com.
This event will coincide with the rescheduled State of the Union Address; we leave it to history to determine which event is the more momentous for our shared destiny.

A plea from our kids:
And a plea from our brothers and sisters under the sea:
An important rally for the orcas is scheduled at the Capitol complex in Olympia on Nov. 16, 2-5 pm. There will be representations of all 74 living wild Southern Resident Killer Whales, plus Tokitae, aka “Lolita,” held in captivity at Miami Seaquarium.
Nov 16 is when the Orca Task Force final recommendations go to Governor Inslee. The rally is to support breaching the Lower Snake River Dams a.s.a.p. for the sake of our salmon and orcas!
There is a big need for people to hold one of the 75 orca replicas. Interested people should let the organizers know they want to hold an orca by posting on the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/254931905370101/
