More about us: Once a region with powerful worker organizing, the timber counties on Washington State’s rural coastline have seen decades of disinvestment and decline. We face high unemployment, housing shortages, health disparities, living-wage job shortages, divisive politics, and crumbling infrastructure. Our livelihoods, lands, and waters are at risk. The rich and powerful in our state rake in billions while we wonder how we’ll pay for rent or healthcare. We are organizing for an economy and good jobs caring for our people and place - and our people have a fire in the belly. Our base is primarily low-wage workers who work in mills, canneries, healthcare, childcare, logging, and more. We organize in Spanish and English to unite workers across sector, race, and generation to build power and campaign for transformational policies and programs – healthy, affordable housing, childcare and healthcare, dignity for workers, tenants and immigrants, good jobs in natural resource sectors, and righting our state’s rigged tax system to invest in communities.

Firelands and our fiscal sponsors are equal opportunity employers; we do not discriminate in employment on the basis of actual or perceived race, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, genetic information, the presence of a sensory, physical, or mental disability, marital status, honorably discharged veteran or military status, citizenship or immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity, status as a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, political ideology or any other status or characteristic protected by local, state or federal law. People of color, immigrants or first-generation citizens, formerly incarcerated people, people with disabilities, women and LGBTQ people are strongly encouraged to apply.
