Free trees for Bellevue!

Planting and protecting trees for a better future

Bellevue City Council Candidates Forum

Over 100 people came to hear Bellevue City Council candidates speak and address questions about their position on trees, climate, and the environment. The event was held at East Shore Unitarian Church on the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 19th. All six of the major Bellevue City Council Candidates were there, answering our questions in a panel format. The forum was organized by People for Climate Action in partnership with 300 Trees, Trees4Livability, Earth & Climate Action Ministry, Sierra Club, Save Coal Creek, Indivisible Eastside, 350 Eastside, Eastside Audubon, Future Wise, and Sustainability Ambassadors.
