Metro Seattle and the central Puget Sound region are facing a large wave of population growth—an estimated 1.7 million additional people will be moving to the region by 2040. Puget Sound Sage is working, along with many community allies to ensure that the focus moving forward is on building communities where all families thrive, including diverse communities now living around planned and existing transit stations.

Puget Sound Sage has been working with environmental allies in the metro Seattle area using non-partisan voter forums to raise attention to environmental justice issues in state legislative races. The first event took place on September 13th in Renton, Washington in a non-partisan forum co-sponsored by Sage and six local environmental organizations.
Puget Sound Sage successfully brought the Partnership for Working Families community benefits model to the northwest in 2008. We signed a landmark community benefits agreement, culminating a two-year campaign and we took the first step in inserting these values into Metro-Seattle’s public policy debate as well.
