Our services are provided by volunteers with the help of generous people like you!
With your contribution today, we will be able to continue building our organization. Right now, our priorities for funding support include:
Achieving 501c3 Status. While your contribution is tax-deductible thanks to our fiscal sponsor CascadiaNow!, contributions will make it possible for us to complete the legal process necessary to achieve our own tax-deductible charity status and further support our work.
Recruit and Train Students for the Salish Sea Organizing Fellows. With your help, we hope to be able to reach thousands of students and dozens of university and college campuses around the region, and support them in attending a two-week organizing intensive during the summer that will give them the skills they need to organize effectively in the campuses' watersheds. By building local clubs all over the region, we can create watershed consciousness in every community that impacts the health of the Salish Sea.
Fight the Kinder-Morgan Pipeline Expansion. With the support of students organizing at campuses throughout the Salish Sea, we'll build a cohesive resistance to the Kinder-Morgan pipeline expansion that supports indigenous activists leading the fight in Canada. In the last year alone, we've conducted dozens of workshops and events to support the legal fight against the pipeline in Canada and engage new activists in the resistance south of the border. Your contribution makes it possible to continue to rent the venues and compensate the indigenous speakers for the cost of travel to come to our campuses and make their voices heard.
Launch a Proactive Canvassing Program. We're hoping to extend our reach beyond college campuses by enlisting students in door-to-door canvassing efforts that make potential supporters aware of the immediate threats facing the Salish Sea and invite them to support the resistance. Your help will allow us to print materials and organizing canvassing efforts.
Ban Atlantic Salmon Fish Farms in the Salish Sea. Building on recent successes in Washington state, we hope to expand the resistance to Atlantic salmon fish farms with our chapters in British Columbia and prevent future releases of invasive and genetically engineered salmon into our local waters.
Please consider giving to support our work today. As an emerging non-profit led by student activists, every little bit helps us grow!
