All Walk Encouragement Rally follow up.
Sunday was a nice warm day in February reminding us all why we walk to encourage individual climate change action. Up to a dozen participants held signs of encouragement as we occupied the Alaska Junction intersection during the all walk crossing. We had a very favorable response from the public.
All Walk Encouragement rally to encourage personal action on climate pollution and climate change.
Join West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice along with West Seattle Meaningful Movies and Sustainable West Seattle to encourage our neighbors to take personal action to reduce the effects of Climate Change. We will march during the the All Walk right of way in the Alaska Junction intersection from noon to 1pm this Sunday February 8th.
Bring your own signs with messages or use the ones provided. Please help us create meaningful change.
Meaningful Movies follow up.
A very informative series of shorts about urban food in 3 cities across America. The connection between food and social justice became very clear. There were also informative displays about Seattle Tilth, Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS), and Puget Ridge Edible Park (PREP)
Next month the movie is a very in depth documentary about money in politics.
