WHO WE ARE:  As the Community Rights Coalition of Jefferson County, Washington (CRC), we have come together as a group that is leaderless,  open, volunteer, non-violent and consensus based. We see ourselves as part of the entirety of our community of humans and of nature, both living and non-living.  We assert our intrinsic inalienable rights to engage in an open, transparent and participatory democratic process whereby we can assume the powers necessary to enforce the rights of the natural world including all humans.

We have been meeting since the fall of 2012 discussing community concerns and ways to make effective changes.  We welcome participants no matter what your affiliation.

WHAT WE BELIEVE: that a democracy should be controlled by the people it serves, that human rights are a higher priority than corporate rights, and that human rights need to be in harmony with natural rights.

 EVENTS:  We have begun a series of presentations, films, and guest speakers to help inform the public about issues important to this community.

COLLABORATION WITH OTHER GROUPS:  We have worked with GAG* to raise public awareness about I-522, with “The Hood Canal Coalition”* regarding the “Pit To Pier” proposal, and with “Stand-up Whatcom”  and  CELDF* to work on current challenges like Home Rule, Food Bill of Rights, Fish Pen Opposition, Clean Water and Air, and overall sustainability.

CURRENT FOCUS:  We have started a campaign to get “Home Rule” for Jefferson County and are working on a Community Bill of Rights and the passage of I-522, the GMO labeling Initiative in Washington State.
