Yes on Measure 1631 in Washington State

Let’s spread the word about I-1631... and make history!

In the election about to begin, Washington voters will consider Initiative 1631: our clean air, clean energy initiative that invests in clean energy and healthy communities through a fee on the largest polluters. 

With the climate crisis becoming ever more urgent as we experience more impacts here at home and abroad, we need to ensure that Washington voters say YES on 1631. 

We can’t do this without YOU. Here are some of the ways you can help: 

Volunteer door knock – I’ve been doing this and it is powerful democracy in action!  Big Oil is already spending more than $20 million to defeat us, but we have the Power of the People.  Please sign up for a shift here.

Calling voters who might need a nudge to vote – this is a huge priority for the campaign, and we need lots of help. We need to ensure these registered voters turn in their ballots. Here is the link for you to schedule yourself for a phonebanking shift (Human-to-human calls are a very powerful tool!) Here is the link to our dialer toolkit.  If you want to call from downtown Seattle this link has all of Washington Environmental Council’s phone banks for 1631, Sunday-Thursday. 

Texting – We are doing texts to help Get Out The Vote. You can sign up for a texting shift here

Small Business Endorsements -Do you know a small business owner you can ask? Maybe your favorite coffee shop? If you get a yes, be sure to fill out this form and we can get them a sign for their window.   

If you want to help in a more substantial way by volunteering full or part time for the campaign, let me know! Or if you can host an organizer from out of town, please sign up here
