About our team

Our history

Our roots began as a Decriminalize Nature Seattle which was loosely formed in early 2019.

After March of 2021, Decrim Nature Seattle (DNS) quickly grew under the new leadership at that time. Tatiana, Kody, Monique, Ben, George, Elyse and many other volunteers rallied and with the help of John Engber and our partnership with VOCAL-WA, we were able to pass a resolution deprioritizing arrests related to psychedelics in Seattle in October of 2021!

People and culture

Our people are what make us strong. We focus on cultivating a diverse coalition that more accurately reflects the diversity of thought, culture, race, age, gender identity ability/disability status, neurodivergence, and more that exist amongst people who use psychedelics.
