Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice in PDX

Our community partners at Oregon Just Transition Alliance invite you to join us on Saturday, September 8th to Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice in Oregon. In Oregon, frontline communities have endorsed an intersectional climate justice platform: we oppose construction of fossil fuel infrastructure, we oppose hateful policies like Measure 105, and we support frontline leaders developing solutions that change the rules and draw down wealth and power, like the Portland Clean Energy Fund. Across the country, and around the world, our communities will Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice and we will Rise for Climate Action aimed at communicating to global and local leaders that a strong US climate movement exists and that the time has come to hold our leaders accountable. 

We call upon Portland’s environmental, racial, social, and economic justice communities and allies to stand with us and support the leadership of most-impacted people. A strong US Climate movement DOES exist. Here in Oregon, impacted communities, workers, and climate-minded cities and townships are already leading the way. They are identifying solutions that will address the climate realities faced by frontline communities, demanding that leaders commit to strong solutions anchored in economic and racial justice, and leveraging their growing power to make sure those leaders honor their commitments.
