The message is a call-out to Senator Murray and Governor Inslee of Washington State asking them to support breaching the four Lower Snake River Dams.  It will help the public understand why breaching is important, how it can be done and that the lack of political will is the only thing standing in the way. This is one of the top issues for our region and for our time.  Without action, salmon and resident orca species are headed for near-term extinction.
