No matter which team you root for, what language you speak at home, we are all Cascadian. A strong Cascadian community can be a true catalyst for local, equitable change. We celebrate Cascadia Culture Week to remind ourselves of distinct regional values, unique traditions, inherent beliefs, and our devotion to creating a sustainable and equitable community in which leadership is in the hands of the people and a strong community is our greatest asset.So please, celebrate being Cascadian with us this week.
Come and celebrate with Cascadians from around the region!
May 18th was chosen by Cascadian bioregionalist David McCloskey, as a way to celebrate the unique dynamism of our region, and is a wonderful way to get involved, learn more about Cascadia, and meet many others also interested in the idea :)

In Bend: Facebook Event
Vancouver Chapter has taken the lead, and put down for a nice an online survey to gauge awareness of the Doug and familiarity with the term 'Cascadia'. In British Columbia at least, only 30% of folks were familiar with the flag, and 33% with the term.
This means we've got some work to do! For this May 18th weekend, we'll be organizing a regional campaign to spread some awareness, and we need your help. For anyone interested, we're going to be putting together collaborative documents and posters introducing Cascadia, the Doug Flag, and May 18th Cascadia Day for send out to newspapers, local governments, community groups, universities, and hope that individuals in communities around the Pacific Northwest will join us in getting them out in their area.
In addition, we're asking individuals and groups to host informal or formal events, activities and distinctively 'Cascadia' events around the region. We'll tie these together through social media like livestream, youtube, email, reddit, twitter, instagram, tumblr and more! #May18 #Cascadiaday. Join us in one of our online groups, reddit - or email a regional coordinator or us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
