Welcome to Cascadia
Cascadia is a unique coastal bioregion that defines the Pacific Northwest of the United States and Canada, incorporating British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, parts of Idaho, southern Alaska and northern California, and in many ways is geographically, culturally, economically and environmentally distinct from surrounding regions.
CascadiaNow! is a positive, grassroots movement inspired by a love of place, dedicated to connecting together individuals and communities to increase our regional sufficiency and autonomy, and to realize ways to improve our region for the benefit of everyone living here.
We empower community organizing by building productive partnerships, cultivating engagement, providing tools and direct services, and are a focal point for chapters, groups, events and projects.
Whether you know it or not, you're already a citizen of this region, and we look forward to working with you.
This is Cascadia, and we are Cascadian
If you are interested in volunteering or working with our group, let us know. There are a wide variety of ways in which to help out. If you have any special interests, would like to let us know how you think you can help or just to show your support please don’t hesitate to contact us.
The Cascadia Poetry Festival is an international event taking place in Seattle from May 2-4th to bioregionally animate & culturally construct Cascadia by gathering writers, artists, scientists and activists to collaborate, discover and foster deeper connection between all inhabitants and the place itself.
CascadiaNow! get's a mention in the Seattle Globalist and picked up in the Seattle Stranger's Slog, in which they asked 'Should Portland, Seattle and British Columbia secede and become their own independent nation?' Vote here!
