Fossil Fuel Resistance Team Meeting @ 350PDX Office, Central Lutheran Church (enter on Hancock St)
May 30 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join the next Fossil Fuels Resistance Team meeting!

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!

Current fights

    • Zenith Energy – Oil Trains in Portland – Alberta tar sands is being covertly exported right under our noses
    • Stop Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline (down in Southern Oregon)
    • Stop Tacoma LNG Facility
    • Stop Kalama Methanol Refinery – if built would be largest in the world
    • Act as a watchdog for the City of Portland’s Climate Action Plan and 100% renewable efforts

If you’re new and want to get up to speed, please let Melanie know (team co-lead, melanie.plaut@gmail.com) and she can meet you 30 minutes before the start time to explain what the team is up to.

Youth v. Gov Rally @ Director Park
Jun 4 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

As the climate movement gains momentum, we are looking ahead to the future. One of the landmark pieces of the climate justice movement is the Youth V. Gov case currently being fought right here in Oregon. As we fight the fossil fuel industry, these young people are fighting for a better, more just representation of the peoples’ will in US law.

The next step in the Youth V. Gov case for our right to a stable climate system is scheduled to take place in Portland on June 4th! Join us for a rally to show our support! The rally will be hosted by one of our partners, Our Children’s Trust, so let’s rally behind them to strengthen our movement!

Help us demonstrate our widespread national support for these young Americans and the constitutional climate rights they seek to protect. We are asking supporters like you to mobilize on the day of the hearing!

Are you in Portland on June 4th? Join more than a thousand supporters at Director Park downtown at 10:30 a.m. to watch the live-streamed oral argument. We will be just a few blocks from the courthouse (which only seats about 40 people). Afterwards, we will hear from youth plaintiffs, their attorneys, and other community and climate movement members.

Come celebrate a milestone in this historic case! Together, we will elevate youth voices, broaden our coalition, and come together to show all elected officials, local and national, that We the People will keep rising until they do their job. There will be music, art, and speakers throughout the morning.

Please RSVP to the rally using the link below. Thanks!
