This is a working group of Transition Whatcom which is focused on protecting peoples’ Constitutional rights from subversion by corporations and government. They believe that people should govern themselves for the common good while also protecting the habitat shared by humans and all other species. To that end nature itself must be viewed as having rights and not as mere property.
A local group that works to catalyze and empower the community of Whatcom county to engage in social action to take charge over issues that affect the health and well being of ourselves, our neighbors, and our ecosystems. WAC is a network of concerned citizens and local organizations working at a grassroots level to take action to demonstrate the power our community controls to shape a positive and just future.
A community project started to provide an alternative to police escorts and intervention, as well as build trust and strength among the community. An all volunteer organization of students, workers and other community members, the Whatcom Action Patrol aims to alleviate many of the stresses that arise from a patriarchal society, by providing both men and women with a walk home service and downtown patrol.
Another group of concerned community members with a similar goal of providing an alternative means of dispute resolution for individuals when faced with unfair practices of employers and landlords. By fostering community reliance, and standing together in solidarity, employees and tenants can more effectively fight to resolve grievances committed against them.
