Heading back to school is a great opportunity for kids to learn sustainable habits. By reusing a lunchbox or buying used clothes and supplies, the next generation is learning to reduce, reuse, and recycle. See WM’s tips for going green this schoolyear in Everett Herald: https://bit.ly/3AUX8NE

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, or DEI is a prominent initiative in many of our organizations – including the WSRA! Join us to hear case studies from two racial equity practitioners who are putting those equity principles into action.

About the Speakers:
Sam Keller from Seattle Public Utilities will share about Seattle’s Community Connections work. Sam is a senior community partnerships planner at SPU who focuses on equitable community engagement. Community Connections is a program that focuses on creating deep and sustainable partnerships that aim to improve the quality of life for people of color, immigrant, and low-income communities through transformative approaches and experiences. The program is currently engaged with Chinese Information Service Center, Horn of Africa Services, and ECOSS.

Sully Moreno is a community engagement and racial equity consultant who has worked extensively on solid waste projects. Her consulting practice is called Culture Shift Consulting. She will share about her work creating and facilitating a community panel for the King County Solid Waste Division Re+ program. Re+ focuses on reducing waste going to the landfill, and the community panel leans on their lived and professional experience to share recommendations for implementing Re+ strategies in ways that advance equity and benefit community members.

You are invited to the Washington Litter Summit, which will be virtual, on the afternoon of July 19 and the morning of July 20. This educational event is designed for government employees, non-profit staff, community leaders and public officials working on solutions to address litter-related problems in Washington State. The goal is to share technical, solution-oriented strategies, resources, policies, success stories and innovations to turn the tide on litter. The summit seeks to highlight and discuss policy, funding, behavior change, communications, innovative programs and other strategies to address this growing issue. This event will also be an opportunity to develop partnerships and future actions.

The agenda is under development. The plan is to include four sessions around the general themes of Homeless encampments, Prevention/Messaging, Policy/Programs/Best Practices and Cleanup/New Technologies. The keynote presenters are: Jeff Kirschner (Founder & CEO of Litterati) talking about their data-driven approach in communities across the US to address the problem and Nancy Lee (Founder and President of Social Marketing Services) talking about her research work with Ecology related to social marketing to address litter reduction.

The Washington State Recycling Association (WSRA) has developed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee that will serve as a new and permanent branch of the organization. We are excited to deploy a dedicated team to work in partnership with members, volunteers, and the Board to critically examine all aspects of WSRA’s programs through an equity lens. WSRA’s Board understands that this journey must begin by looking within, and to this end, we have identified a consultant who can help be our strategic guide.

We are looking for sponsors to help to raise $10,000 in order to jump start these efforts in 2022! If this work sounds in line with your organization’s mission, you can learn more about our goals and sponsorship packages here: https://wsra.net/dei/ We appreciate your support on this important journey.
