Our People, Our Planet, Our Power: Community Led Research in South Seattle
Our People, Our Planet, Our Power is a compilation of findings, stories, and recommendations from community discussions in South Seattle/King County, Washington, facilitated by Puget Sound Sage and Got Green’s Climate Justice Project. This project was run by a steering committing of people of color, who designed and implemented a survey to identify the perspectives of people of color living in South Seattle related to climate change. Over nine months, the research team interviewed 175 people and 30 organizations to determine collective priorities and initiate a process of equitable planning. In addition to the survey, the steering committee organized three round tables to encourage a deeper dialogue.
