Sightline is Cascadia’s sustainability think tank. We aim to set the region’s long-term agenda by defining the region’s largest sustainability challenges and describing the most effective solutions for meeting them. We believe true sustainability exists at the intersection of environmental health and social justice.

Sightline appreciates a broad array of experiences and backgrounds and is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We continually work to ensure that our audiences, staff, and board reflect the geographic, racial, ethnic, socio-economic, and other demographic diversity of Cascadia.

Part-Time Contract Bookkeeper
