Christie Heyer has always been passionate about the environment and now has the chance to talk to people on the street about climate change and what we can do. Christie is a signature gatherer for the Yes on 1631 campaign, which would invest in clean energy and clean air and strengthen our communities in the face of climate-change impacts.
What are Christie's tips for new volunteers? What does she find most fun about volunteering for the campaign? Watch the video below and follow along with Christie as she pounds the pavement in West Seattle gathering signatures to put I-1631 on the ballot:
With Initiative 1631, we have taken hundreds or even thousands of steps toward the goal of cleaner, healthier future.
At the Nature Conservancy, we couldn’t be more excited about this groundbreaking, precedent-shattering opportunity. Urban or rural, economically challenged or affluent, I-1631 is going to be good news for all of us.
Who decides how to distribute revenue from I-1631 fairly and effectively? And how can we be sure funded projects are working?
There is no question: Initiative 1631 will give Washington a cleaner, healthier, and more resilient future. It will also set a tone for the nation.
If we all start trimming our carbon footprints, our contributions to a healthy climate will only add up. Take the challenge to cut your carbon footprint!
Science shows that our seas are rising. When you add this to more frequent, severe rain, it’s easy to see how coastal communities are on the front lines of climate-change impacts.
More than 2,000 volunteers, organized through more than 200 organizations across Washington, worked over 12 weeks to gather signatures to get I-1631 on the ballot.
