The coalition will be collecting signatures at large community gatherings throughout June. Look for them at farmers' markets, outside grocery stores or at other central locations in your city.

Climate change threatens Washington’s communities and natural systems, which we have been working to protect for nearly 60 years. We believe supporting this initiative is one of the most significant steps we can take together to ensure a future where people and nature can thrive in Washington.
This policy will drive investments in clean energy as well as in restoring forests, protecting water supplies and other measures to enable our communities to thrive in the face of climate change impacts.
Initiative 1631 will invest in clean energy and clean air, and strengthen our communities in the face of climate-change impacts.
- Protect our communities’ health and leave a better future for our children
- Invest in clean energy, like wind and solar, as well as healthy forests, clean air and water
- Create thousands of local jobs in communities across the state while cutting pollution
- Establish a fee on the largest corporate polluter, to ensure we are all doing our fair share to protect our state
