Saturday morning at 10:35-11:50am in the Global Scholars Hall, room 131 (across the lawn from the Law School) during Panel session 7.
“As companies push to transport coal, oil, and gas across the region, we organize to stop them. Oregon based panelists have organized to stop the Pembina propane export terminal and pass Portland’s proactive Fossil Fuel Infrastructure Ban and are working to stop oil-by-rail, the Tesoro Savage oil terminal and the Oregon LNG and Jordan Cove projects. We will discuss the opportunities and obstacles of working with broad coalitions of unconventional allies to build broad collective power.”
