Janet, a Washington native and South Seattle resident since 1975, is a retired health educator and clinical provider with underserved communities in Chile and Seattle.  The bloody Chilean coup of 1973 followed by the long and brutal Pinochet dictatorship, marked a  pivotal point in her life, setting her on a path of peace and justice activism.

Her commitment to climate action is driven not only by love for her daughter and son, but by a concern for future generations everywhere, that they might  live in a sustainable world free of the ravages of climate chaos.  She also believes that we have a moral obligation to protect the gift of life on Earth.

Within  SSCAN Janet focuses on presenting environmental and social justice films, accompanied by knowledgeable guest speakers and audience discussions via Mt. Baker Meaningful Movies. (She also participates in other areas of the resistance and gardens.)
