SSCAN’s legislative working group advocates for public policy that reduces greenhouse gas emissions in Washington State and prepares our communities, especially the most vulnerable, for anticipated climate change effects. We urge our legislators to be leaders for climate justice.
During the Washington State legislative session we identify and monitor the priority bills that concern climate change. We also meet with senators and representatives of south Seattle, and prepare for them a legislative priorities letter.
As the session progresses, we keep our members informed of when important hearings and votes are being held so they may ask their legislators to support climate justice action.
We draft letters to the editor and Op-Ed pieces for local newspapers and do outreach with south Seattle community organizations on climate change policy.
