We’re gearing up for Zero Hour, the global youth climate march on July 21, demanding bold action on climate and environmental justice. Join us as we build on this movement, share our stories and advocate for a better future with sustainable solutions to our lawmakers. Now is not the time to back down. #thisiszerohour #youthvgov #climatejustice
Before we march, we lobby! Join us for Zero Hour Seattle Youth Climate Lobby Day on July 19: https://www.facebook.com/events/240869629996075/
We’re looking for youth to join our Zero Hour Seattle leadership collective – if you are a young person interested in organizing the march and lobby day please contact us: http://www.zerohourseattle.org/get-involved
Got Green is hosting this event in conjunction with Zero Hour, Plant for the Planet – USA and 350 Seattle
Got Green organizes for environmental, racial, and economic justice as a South Seattle-based grassroots organization led by people of color and low income people. We cultivate multi-generational community leaders to be central voices in the Green Movement in order to ensure that the benefits of the green movement and green economy (green jobs, healthy food, energy efficient & healthy homes, public transit) reach low income communities and communities of color.
Got Green’s Vision
People of color and low income families are exercising self-determination to create and govern resilient and healthy communities where they live, work, learn, play and pray.
We envision healthy communities where all people:
1) Work meaningful jobs that nourish our earth, our communities, and our souls;
2) Eat affordable, healthy food that is grown with dignity for workers and the environment;
3) Live in safe and sustainable housing, rooted in climate resilient neighborhoods;
4) Care for our environment in our relationships to the land, the climate, and each other
