The opportunities to speak out against dirty fossil fuels in the Pacific Northwest aren’t over! At the information session, you’ll learn how to keep your voice loud and clear to protect clean water, safe communities, and our climate from fossil fuel export. Standing up to dirty coal and oil isn’t easy if you’re working alone.
But, together, you’ve helped defeat five out of six coal export terminals in Oregon and Washington. Now it’s time to finish the job (while eating some ice cream to support the Portland All Nations Canoe Family) and protect our region from dirty and dangerous fossil fuel pollution.
Please RSVP and share the details of this event with your network on Facebook. See you June 24th.
