We promote peace and prosperity for the Cascadian bioregion and its inhabitants, while advancing the interests of Cascadia abroad.
Cascadia Illahee is the name of the land given by the people who live here and a bioregional movement to empower every person to be active about what they care about. We work to protect the things we love, grow a positive regional identity, increase the independence and autonomy of our bioregion, reverse harmful colonial mindsets and policies, and connect into a network of ethical and sustainable movements from around the world.
This is Cascadia, and we are Cascadian. We hope you join us!
cASCADIA IS YOUR MOVEMENT.
