Sign the Petition & Write to Congress: Restore Federal Recognition for the Chinook Indian Nation

In 2001, the Chinook Nation obtained federal recognition from the U.S. government. However, celebration turned into heartbreak when the U.S. government rescinded this recognition eighteen months later.

The Chinook Indian Nation was essentially declared nonexistent in the eyes of the government. The nation has been unable to access programs and resources to which federally recognized tribes are entitled. Over the last 20 years, the lack of federal recognition has cost $200 million dollars, opportunities for youth, and countless lives.

Congress has both the power and authority to recognize tribes. We are calling on our elected officials to do what’s right and end this humanitarian crisis. Stop the genocide. Federally recognize the Chinook Indian Nation.

Timeframe: By January 3, 2023

Send in a comment to ODOT to demand an Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Rose Quarter Freeway Expansion

Our friends at No More Freeways need our help to submit as many comments as possible to the Oregon Department of Transportation to challenge the agency’s proposed $1.45 billion Rose Quarter Freeway Expansion, and demand a thorough Environmental Impact Statement on the project.

ODOT still has done absolutely nothing to address concerns about the dangerous impacts of the additional lanes of freeway and the congestion it will bring to our streets, the air pollution it will bring to our lungs, and the carbon emissions that it will add to our alarmingly warming planet.

Please submit your own comment here by January 3, 2023. You can write whatever you’d like, but we’d encourage you to speak from the heart and write about your own personal reasons why you oppose this project, be it related to air pollution, induced demand, climate change, or general skepticism of ODOT. Click here to see the talking points from No More Freeways to include in your comments, as well as submit your comment directly to ODOT.

Join the 350PDX Creative Roster

Our Creative Team uses art and storytelling to make the climate justice movement irresistible.

This team does the whole creative process, from developing the story (or the narrative strategy) of our campaigns, to figuring out the most strategic way to get the story out to the right audiences, to producing all the banners, videos, songs, performances, creative direct actions, social media campaigns, press releases, webpages, animations, poems, and whatever else that will get our message out there.

The creative roster is our list of folks with creative skills that we can call on when we have a one-off need. Next time we need a songwriter or a photographer we’ll look through the roster and reach out to a few people who have those skills to see if they are free to help! Sign up here.
