Community-Supported Climate Justice

  • Roaming Radish 5417 Crawford Road Langley, WA 98260 (map)

Join us at the Roaming Radish restaurant for an evening of community conversation about climate justice, a locally sourced dinner (with vegan and gluten-free options), and a range of local wine and craft beer. With the spirit of inclusion in mind, this event will be held on a sliding-scale basis. All ticket pricing can be found at https://forthepeople.earth/derek/community-supported-climate-justice/.

This fundraiser will support direct action to fight climate change right here, right now. All funds will go directly toward supporting full-time community organizing and activism on Whidbey Island. The model we are working with is called Community-Supported Organizing, and works much like your favorite local farm's CSA program; except that with this model, you are funding the future of our planet.

Derek Hoshiko is a climate justice community organizer with deep ties to Whidbey Island and the Central Puget Sound region. He is launching a bold initiative called Rapid and Just Climate Action. This project will work in tandem with the nonprofit organization For the People and communities in Washington state to stop global warming in ten years.

Derek's activism agenda includes:

- Transforming environmental and sustainability education
- Supporting youth leadership
- Instigating rapid and just climate actions
- Stopping fossil fuel projects
- Holding organizations accountable
- Supporting de-colonialization and anti-patriarchy
- Building for deep relational organizing
- Empowering community finance
