In order to stop the climate crisis from getting worse, we have to keep the remaining fossil fuel reserves in the ground. The Pacific Northwest is currently facing many active proposals for new fossil fuel infrastructure that if built would lock us into the fossil fuel economy and its carbon pollution for decades to come. The Fossil Fuel Resistance team seeks to stop new fossil fuel projects from being built in Portland or to service the Portland metro area, and to engage in regional fights to stop all new fossil fuel infrastructure in the PNW and beyond!
What does the Fossil Fuels Resistance Team work on?
Stopping Fossil Fuel Infrastructure in Portland
Stopping Fossil Fuel Infrastructure built to service the Portland Metro Area
Regional fights opposing fossil fuel exports and new major pipelines, power plants and refineries.
Rapid response campaigns.
We need people to:
Writing: blog posts, website, letters to the editor & other educational pieces
Show up to hearings, write comments, give testimony (and teach your friends & family how to do it to!)
Event planning – including rallies, actions, and other community building educational events
Do public speaking and presentations to schools, neighborhood associations, other community groups
Represent 350PDX in coalitions (ex: no LNG coalition, stand up to oil & gas)
Develop direct action skills (action planning, execution, jail support, media etc)
Track other local policies to stop fossil fuel infrastructure
Help with research & power mapping of existing facilities and proposed facilities
Take on leadership opportunities on all of our campaigns!
