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 grassroots social movement dedicated to building awareness and support for local democracy, global community, and the freedom and eventual independence of Washington, Oregon and British Columbia. Our work connects, supports, and advances our society in the Pacific Northwest by promoting policies for increased direct democracy, land rights, individual rights, environmental sustainability, social justice, and freedom.
In addition, we work to highlight our growing regional identity and to celebrate the distinct social, geographic and cultural aspects that make the Pacific Northwest unique.
This is Cascadia, and we are Cascadian

The Cascadia Poetry Festival seeks to examine the culture of this region by gathering poets from California, Oregon, Idaho, Washington, British Columbia, the Alaska panhandle and Western Montana to learn, share ideas and techniques, begin to discover the qualities of this bioregion and the possibilities for deeper connection between the inhabitants from all parts of the region. Note that the final date and time for this event have not yet been finalized.
