Youth Leaders have organized this rally and march, and will be joined by other like minded groups and citizens, including Backbone's salmon and Tahlequah orca, as we rally together for change and then march to the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building.
There, we'll deliver petitions and cards demanding action to save our salmon.
Why we are rallying:
Salmon numbers are at a record low and are at the quasi-extinction threshold. As a keystone species, our salmon is relied on by over 137 other species and are critical to the balance of the ecosystem of the entire Columbia River Basin.
Governor Inslee and Senator Murray will have opened comments at this time on their Lower Snake River Dams Benefit Replacement Study. Now is the time to be heard loud and clear and let them know we must act quickly and free the lower Snake River to uphold Tribal Treaty Rights and save our PNW Salmon and Southern Resident Orca from extinction. Research has shown repeatedly that breaching the four lower Snake River dams is the only effective way to recover salmon populations.
By July 31, they promise to deliver their recommendations - let’s be sure that they recommend breaching the four lower Snake River dams!
On Saturday, June 4th, we'll gather together in love and support at the Central Lutheran Church on 1710 11th Ave. in Seattle. There we will listen to bands with inspiring songs and hear our Youth Leader’s motivating words of encouragement. We will be able to sign petitions and cards and gather our energy before our procession to the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building.
Join us with your family and friends and let your elected officials hear your voice calling out for a free-flowing lower Snake River.
