Portland Public Schools – Climate Justice Board meeting
January 21, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On January 21st at 6:00pm, at the PPS District Offices (501 N Dixon St, Portland), the Portland Public Schools Board will be addressing Climate Justice at their Board Meeting. The district staff will update the Board on the district’s progress on climate justice. While PPS now has filled a Climate Justice Coordinator position, progress has been slow and minimal. The Climate Justice Committee (made up of teachers, students and community members – many of whom are 350PDX members) will testify on the progress that has been made (and the lack thereof) as well as propose that PPS update their Resource Conservation policy:
to include climate justice issues and goals. We need to send a strong message to the state’s largest school district that they have to take climate justice work more seriously and do more, much sooner. Please help support the Climate Justice Committee by showing up and showing support, wearing red of course!
