Never miss a chance to connect!

We’d love to get to know you. Green Empowerment events are a great way to learn more about our work and connect with others who are passionate about sustainability and social justice. In the ever-shifting pandemic climate our events have grown and adapted - we can now be found at a variety of in-person and virtual events in the Pacific Northwest and beyond!
