Welcome to the 43rd LD Environmental Caucus

We are a volunteer organization.

Our mission:  To promote the protection of threatened natural resources – in particular the climate – vital for healthy communities, a healthy ecosystem and a sustainable economy in Washington.

To forward our mission we promote policies, legislation, platforms, positions, resolutions and endorsements within the 43rd District Democrats.  We also partner with other organizations who share our values and goals.

our work on climate is guided by these points:

  • Policy must be rooted in principles of equity and climate justice.
  • Greenhouse gas emissions must start dropping now to reach the needed reduction target of 45% by 2030.
  • We need bold policy for the built environment, energy production and transportation.
  • We must oppose new fossil fuel infrastructure and keep fossil fuels in the ground.
