About

Thank you, Cascadia!

Since its inception in the 1980's, the Cascadia movement has inspired thousands to reimagine the world around them, encourage citizens of all walks to dispute our dependence on “The world as it is known” and the status quo and inspire all citizens of Cascadia to take action. We pay homage to those before us and to protect those that would come after by taking direct action in opposition to those that would seek to deny our inhabitants, within this bioregion or beyond, unblocked access to equitable treatment, agency, and autonomy.

It is a direct result of the last 15 years of community building and social activism that we are ready for the next step: The creation of an open media and broadcast center, that will serve as an incubator for a new era of citizen journalists, a protected space that amplifies the voices of our community by doing more than handing over the mic - we want them to own and never have to give it back.

You can join us! Our vision for the Cascadia Underground looks like this:

  • The development of a training and performance space
  • Live broadcast and recording equipment for interviews, streaming media, and more.
  • Computers for audio and video editing
  • Projectors and screens for presentations
  • Portable audio and video recording equipment
  • Shared distribution pipelines, to include easily accessible podcast networks that pushing media to all digital platforms, robust websites devoted to showcasing articles, recordings, and live stream content.
  • A maker space for DIY print publishing for all Cascadians.
  • And that’s just for starters…

This is your movement and this is your space. We have secured partnerships with local leaders from the worlds of politics, advocacy, non-profit work, community service, and activism, all of whom are eager to connect with the Cascadia community at large in order to bring the Cascadia Underground to life.

Our leadership team is proud to represent a wide variety of Cascadian voices. With more than half of our organizing team comprised of people of color, as well as gender non-conforming and LGBTQIA2+ (LGBTQ) individuals, we continue to build upon our foundational commitment to strengthening diversity within the Cascadia movement.
