Seattle Parks Foundation presents
Let’s Clear the Air
Climate and Environmental Justice Mayoral Forum

Parks are vital, unifying spaces that are essential to health, civic engagement, and climate resilience. Over the last several years, funding for maintenance, capital projects, and recreation programs at Seattle parks has dwindled, while demand and need has only increased— particularly during the pandemic. Adding another layer is a 100-year history of redlining that has perpetuated inequity in Seattle’s communities of color. To right these wrongs and confront the climate crisis, our civic leaders need to come together and truly invest in open spaces as if our lives depend on them— because they do.

Join us for a civic conversation on climate change and environmental justice with Seattle mayoral candidates Bruce Harrell and Lorena González. Hear their views on how city policies can address future challenges, and engage with community groups and leaders actively working on these issues.

Presented by Seattle Parks Foundation and Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition in partnership with Seattle-area environmental and climate justice organizations.
