Speak For the Salmon

Speak For the Salmon

You can create and send artwork to your public officials.

Northwest Artists Against Extinction (NWAAE) is a creative collaboration by artists who value healthy rivers and salmon abundance.

We support bold, urgent action by our policymakers to protect wild salmon and steelhead from extinction by restoring a free-flowing lower Snake River.

This project is a call to artfully raise AWARENESS of, and advocacy for, the campaign to restore the Snake River, its imperiled fish and the many benefits they bring to the Northwest and nation.  It is a call for ACTION and ACCOUNTABILITY.
