    Roadless Area Conservation Act Introduced!

    Today Senator Cantwell (D-WA) and Representative Gallego (D-AZ) introduced legislation that if passed this year would keep the 2001 Roadless Rule on the Tongass, and National Forests around the country, by transforming it from an agency regulation into federal law! The Roadless Area Conservation Act would block states from weakening Roadless protections by creating state-specific rules. Sound familiar?   The Forest Service, at the behest of the State of Alaska and United States Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, is currently in the process of creating an Alaska-specific Roadless Rule. Should the state get its way, many of the protections from the national rule would disappear from the Tongass. Turning Roadless into law would mean states could only strengthen, not weaken, Roadless Rule protections. Stand in solidarity with Senator Cantwell and Representative Gallego, pledge to Protect the Roadless Rule in Alaska.

    Your Action Needed TODAY at 1pm to Protect Alaska’s Waterways

    The recently introduced House Bill 138 (HB 138), sponsored by Representative Kopp, is an act that would gut the rights of Alaskans to protect the exceptional waters on which our ecosystems, ways of life, and economies depend.  This bill is practically identical to SB 51, which remains in the Senate Resources Committee.  The Clean Water Act allows residents of Alaska to protect waters critical to their communities or culture from pollution under a Tier 3 Designation.  HB 138 would require a Tier 3 nomination get passed as a law through the state legislature to exercise this right.  The decision would be political rather than science-based and would make the approval process nearly impossible.  Meanwhile, corporations only have to fill out a 6-page online form, through an administrative process managed by the Department of Environmental Conservation, to get permission to degrade our waters. Call in at 1:00 PM to testify to the House Resources Committee on HB 138 (844)586-9085

    Your Living Room!

    Hunker Down for Climate Change with Katie Ione Craney, an Online Art Night for Lynn Canal

    Want to have fun fighting climate change from your living room? You're invited to Hunker Down for Climate Change, an online art workshop Thursday, May 14th at 7 p.m. SEACC will be hosting a virtual gathering where we can make art together, share that art to make an impact on climate change, and see friendly faces from Klukwan, Haines and Skagway, all in one online space!

    We’re excited to offer this event in partnership with Katie Ione Craney, Katie is a mixed media artist living in Haines, where she uses scrap metal and found materials to explore human and non-human memory and survival in a rapidly changing landscape. Katie will help us transform found and recycled materials, like food packaging or beachcombed junk, into art that can tell a story. So get outside, pick up some trash, and save that thing you were about to throw away because on the 14th you’re going to put it to good use!

    When a crisis strikes — whether it's coronavirus or climate change — it can feel overwhelming, and it’s OK to feel loss or isolation in these times. But we also feel hope when we see our communities organize overnight into mutual aid and mask sewing groups. We believe art can be a way to embrace these contradictory feelings, to find truth and create meaning. Art is also a way to connect with ourselves and others, building the resilient community we need to weather these storms. There’s no better metaphor for transforming crisis into creativity than turning litter into art!

    Participants will have the option to share a photo of their art to a portfolio SEACC is gathering to show Senator Murkowski how important climate change is to our communities. So we hope you'll grab your favorite art supplies and RSVP to join us for a night of art and community on May 14th! After you sign up, you’ll receive an email with a link to the event and more information about what we have in store.  

    See you there,
    Matt and Katie
