Public Meeting on Redistricting Justice for Seattle
Monday, July 11th from 6:00PM – 7:30PM (via Zoom)
To Register: http://www.bit.ly/rjs-map
Each city has different redistricting processes, rules, and city council district map structures. The Redistricting Justice for Washington coalition is working with community leaders and organizations to ensure that voting rights of people of color are protected, and that city council lines across Washington will create fair representation for communities—not partisan or special interests.
On Monday, May 11th, join the Redistricting Justice for Seattle campaign to learn about why redistricting Seattle City Council is important, how to participate in the process, and help inform a community-led citywide map proposal.

Green residential energy codes advance – stay tuned!
At our last meeting, we approved signing on to a letter to the Washington State Building Code Council, urging the adoption of new “Build Green” residential energy codes. These proposals have been voted to advance, and will soon be open for public comment. Stay Tuned!
Below, we are sharing 4 messages which can be cut and shared to your social media:
The WA State Building Code Council voted to advance the *most* #climate friendly state residential energy codes in the country 👏 These proposed code amendments will be open for public comment in the coming weeks — stay tuned!! #CleanCodes #HealthyHomes
Homes & buildings are one of the largest & fastest-growing sources of #climate pollution in WA. The WA State Building Code Council has voted to advance #cleancodes that would change this, including making homes more comfortable with #heatpumps for new construction.
The WA State Building Code Council voted to advance #cleancodes that will reduce the harmful outdoor & indoor air pollution associated with the use of gas systems in new homes. Let’s build with #electric heat & cooking instead! Public comment opportunities coming soon.
Why #BuildElectric? Children in homes with gas stoves have a 42% increased risk of asthma symptoms. The WA State Building Code Council voted to advance #cleancodes to build new homes with clean electric appliances like #heatpumps ⚡️🔌💡
