We are working on healthier communities, watersheds and ecosystems of the Snohomish County, on improving our safety and quality of life, and on community and nature rights.
- No-toxics Spring 2023 and Community RightsSpring is around the corner! You might very well know that yard and home toxics damage the health of you, your family, community and watershed. The Poison Papers have proof how the chemical industry and regulators hide toxicity information from the public. The big question is “What will it take to connect and empower our communities in the pursuit and enforcement of laws that protect them, Community Rights Laws?”.
- Water Stewards Program by NCAPSCCR is proud to promote a program by NCAP – Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides: Central Puget Sound Water Stewards. This community campaign is focused on improving the health of our watersheds and keeping chemical pesticides from entering Puget Sound, by engaging community members on alternative yard care practices. We want you to talk with your neighbors and friends about using less pesticides in their yards! This campaign includes community organizations, cities, counties, watershed management organizations and watershed districts. More information in the post.
- CELDF Online Democracy School 2022On October 15, 16 and 22, 23 at 10 am-12:30 pm, Snohomish County Community Rights (SCCR) will host the 4-day Online Democracy School by Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF). Democracy School is a stimulating and illuminating virtual course that teaches residents and activists an empowering new approach about how to reframe exhausting and often discouraging single-issue work – such as banning pesticides, halting overdevelopment, protecting water and watersheds, and addressing climate change – in a way that we can confront corporate control and government interference on a powerful front: the people’s right of local self-governance and Nature’s rights. Educating yourself and your community is one of the most powerful steps toward change you can make. Your active support and engagement are critical and greatly appreciated. A brighter, healthier future for yourself, your children, community and the Earth depend on your active efforts.
