Why his work with Cascadia is important:
Wesley’s work with Cascadia is an evolving process that stems from his passion for social justice. He cares deeply about the history and cultures of people, particularly those native to the Cascadia Bioregion. He is happy to discuss education, social justice, and the decolonization of the lands of Indigenous people with those who are willing to learn more, or get involved in sharing ideas for building relationships based on empathy, compassion, and mutual respect.
