In early August, we partnered with the Tacoma Urban League to lead a two-day environmental justice girls camp, held an advocacy training with WA Physicians for Social Responsibility, and announced our first ever Stand for Our Sound fall fundraiser at the brand new Pacific Seas Aquarium at the Point Defiance Zoo on November 15! We also discuss the rare sightings of certain mammals in Puget Sound and Commencement Bay, and why these sightings are becoming more and more common in recent years.

March 7, 2018 – Today, the Oil Spill Prevention Act (SB 6269) passed the House of Representatives with a bipartisan vote. This vote followed a bipartisan Senate vote this past Saturday and now heads to the Governor’s desk.
We hosted our first ever Equity Happy Hour, submitted public comments to advocate for a better oil spill contingency plan from U.S. Oil, and submitted recommendations for a stronger stormwater permit for Targa Sound Terminal.
We've launched our new environmental justice program, and we’re advocating for a new bill that protects our communities from oil spills as well as reviewing two contaminated sites in the Tacoma Tideflats that are being removed from the Hazardous Sites list.
