Equity & Environment Agenda

The Equity & Environment Agenda is a blueprint to advance racial equity in Seattle's environmental work. The Agenda lays out four key goal areas and recommended strategies in each area.
  • Healthy environments for all
  • Jobs, local economies & youth pathways
  • Equity in city environmental programs
  • Environmental narrative & community leadership


Leadership Actions

Over the course of the last year, several key "themes" kept surfacing in our conversations with priority communities. In response, the Mayor announced a series of leadership actions as part of Seattle's on-going commitment to this work.


Mainstream Ally Commitments

OSE and the Community Partners Steering Committee hosted a series of workshops with leaders of historically white-led environmental organizations to help prioritize racial justice in their work. Organizations made a series of commitments as a result of these workshops.
