  • Seattle City Council vote to defund DAPL

    01/02/2017

    The City of Seattle is considering ending it’s $3 billion relationship with Wells Fargo. This would be the biggest victory so far in the #DeFundDAPL movement; it is a vital battle in the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

    City Council needs to hear from Seattle loud and clear that we support this ordinance. This is the moment that Seattle can truly stand with Standing Rock.

    Feb 1st, 8:30, City Hall: Grab your #DeFundDAPL sign and show up. The council meeting starts at 9:00. If you’re prepared to give public testimony, even better.

    We need to pack City Hall, so please share this event far and wide. And once you have RSVP’d, take twenty seconds to email every City Council member letting them know that you support the ordinance. You can do so by following this link:

    www.350seattle.org/defund-dapl-form-letter/

    And if you can call your City Council Member that would be even better. Contact information and call script are here:

    See you on the 1st!

  • Rally: Divest city pensions from fossil fuels (Seattle)
    12:00 pm-1:30 pm
    15/02/2017
    600 4th Ave, Seattle, WA 98104, USA

    Do you think Seattle should still be invested in the Dakota Access Pipeline? Do you think Seattle should still be invested in Exxon-Mobil?

    If the answer is no, stand up for what you believe, join us at City Hall and demand that Seattle does better!

    Seattle may have divested from Wells Fargo, but the City of Seattle pension fund still has tens of millions of dollars invested in coal, tar sands and other extreme oil projects that abuse communities and are simply incompatable with a livable planet and a stable climate.

    We are demanding that the City of Seattle does better — faced with the racist, science-denying Trump Administration, it is vital that Seattle aligns its money with its values.

    Join us to help make this demand!

    Speakers at the press conference include Former City Council Member Nick Licata, DeFundDAPL and NoDAPL organizer Rachel Heaton, Got Green’s Rashad Barber, Reverend Jenny Phillips and Council Member Kshama Sawant.

    As we have already seen, when we pack City Hall with hundreds of people, we have huge power.

    Please show up and make your voice heard.

    Book by SUE GREENBERG

    December 1, 1955, Montgomery, Alabama. Rosa Parks, a black woman, refuses to surrender her seat on a public bus to a white man. Her arrest proved to be a tipping point in American history, inspiring Montgomery’s African-American citizens to organize in non-violent protest under the leadership of a new young pastor, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The newly formed Montgomery Improvement Association staged a 13-month boycott of Montgomery’s public transit system that resulted in a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down segregation on public buses as unconstitutional.

    60 years after the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Rosa Parks is remembered as “The Mother of the Civil Rights Movement.” With deep intensity and uplifting songs of the struggle, this play tells her uniquely moving American story. Everyone makes a difference.

    Recommended for audiences ages 10 and up.
