Jessica Plumb / Safe Passage in the Salish Sea

Action Grantee Jessica Plumb's Safe Passage in the Salish Sea is part of a larger campaign by the Friends of the San Juans (FSJ) to develop a new sensitive area designation, a “Particularly Sensitive Sea Area” (PSSA), through the International Maritime Organization, which would begin to limit the shipping of fossil fuels and mitigate potential oil spills and other disasters in the Salish Sea.  On the public front, the film was tied to a petition to designate the Salish Sea as a "Particularly Sensitive Sea Area" (PSSA) and promoted heavily through social media. "PSSA" is a new term for most people, and the film was designed to offer context for this proposal. To date, the petition to designate the Salish Sea as a PSSA has garnered over 1,500 signatures, and was to be widely promoted at the upcoming Salish Sea conference. It continues to garner public and political interest on the topic and more impact results are expected in the coming months.  Learn more about the project here.
