The Urbanist Monthly Meetup with Councilmember Mike O’Brien

The Urbanist is excited to have Seattle City Council Member Mike O’Brien as our June Meetup guest. In his seven years on city council, Mike has been a champion for environmental and social justice causes including work to: ban plastic bags, create a public financing system for local elections, give Uber drivers the right to collective bargain, create stable living options for people living in vehicles and without shelter, find alternatives to incarcerating our kids, and prevent Shell Oil from establishing their Arctic drilling fleet in Seattle. Mike originally got involved in local politics through the Sierra Club, where he has been a volunteer for 15 years and is currently serving on the Board of Directors.
