  • Green Seattle Day 2018
    9:00 am-1:00 pm
    03/11/2018

    Mark your calendars for our biggest party of the year, Green Seattle Day, on November 3rd! We want you to dig in and to get out into your local neighborhood to help us kick off our planting season. Join the fun and be one of hundreds of volunteers planting thousands of plants in parks throughout the Emerald City! Choose from 15 parks to volunteer in, and all events will be starting at 9am.
    All community members are welcome, and no experience is necessary! The event is family friendly and open to all ages. Volunteers will plant trees and other plants that will become the future forest of the park. We hope that you will all lend a hand in the neighborhoods you live in, and volunteer at the closest park near you! Pick from the park list below and make sure to sign up in advance using the event links provided. These events do fill up, so make sure to save your spot now and don’t miss out on the biggest planting party of the year!

    In Guatemala’s Ixcán region, Indigenous communities have resisted the imposition of the Xalalá Dam for over a decade.

    Learn from the lessons of their successful organizing in conversation with the Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala (NISGUA) and Maya Mam community leader José Gómez. On behalf of the Association of Communities for Development & the Defense of Land and Natural Resources (ACODET), Jóse will speak about their struggle to protect land and water, cultivate Indigenous leadership, and build community power in the face of harmful corporate and state-led megadevelopment.
