** This is an in-person meeting! There will be food (usually pizza) please feel free to bring a side or dessert to share. **
In order to fight the climate crisis, it is necessary to keep the remaining fossil fuel (coal, oil, gas) reserves in the ground and create a clear pathway towards a just transition that protects communities on the frontlines of dirty energy extraction. The Pacific Northwest is currently facing many active proposals for new fossil fuel infrastructure that would put communities in danger and lock us into the fossil fuel economy and its carbon pollution for decades to come. The Fossil Fuel Resistance team is one of 350PDX’s most longstanding teams, and has been successfully working to stop new fossil fuel projects from being built in Portland and across the PNW region and beyond.
We have many active campaigns right now and would love for you to join us! Here’s a glimpse of some of the projects we’re currently working on. Together with our partners, we’ve won against big fossil fuel giant corporations before, and we are committed to continue to defeat them!
- Zenith Energy‘s tar sands oil terminal expansion in NW Portland.
- Fighting the greenwashing of dirty and polluting “natural” (fracked!) gas.
- And many more!
We meet every 2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 5:30 – 7:00 pm. The 2nd Tuesdays are always virtual, and the 4th Tuesdays are always in-person (WITH FOOD!) in the 350PDX office in the Rebuilding Center on Mississippi. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com for meeting details.
