About This Cause
Over the past decade, Puget Sound Sage been on the forefront of driving some of the nation’s most dynamic policies for climate, economic, and racial justice. We are an organization led by majority women of color who are accountable to and serve the interests of low-income people, communities of color, immigrants and refugees in the Puget Sound region. Working in partnership, we advocate for equitable policies that move towards transformational change. We envision a region where all people live, work, and play in joyful and just communities.
From land use to workers’ rights, environmental justice to living wage initiatives, policymakers and community leaders alike view Puget Sound Sage as a go-to resource for coalition building, community-based research, and policy expertise.
In order to move long-term systems change, we apply the following four strategies:
- Community-based participatory research, which centers community needs from the start and identifies policy solutions from those most impacted.
- Coalition organizing, which builds collective power that individuals and groups wouldn't have individually, and uses that power to create systemic change.
- Policy advocacy, which centers the liberation of all people and works to address the root causes, not just the symptoms, of the issues through innovative policy solutions.
- Leadership development, which invests in building the leadership and capacity of those most affected by racial, social, and environmental injustice.
