About Us

Community Rights San Juan Islands is a non-profit group working on The Rights of the Salish Sea initiative to bring Community Rights and Rights of Nature to San Juan County.

Community Rights: the right to say “no” to harmful industries and their impacts, and the right to say “yes” to a healthy ecosystem.

Rights of Nature: Recognizing the right of the Salish Sea watershed and natural communities to exist and flourish.

Why? Because as residents of the Salish Sea region, we share a responsibility to protect the relationships we have with the life-giving water and land that surrounds us.
