This week is packed with action opportunities leading up to Earth Day on April 22!
Earth Day is a unique opportunity for us to come together in huge numbers for climate justice and get decision-makers’ attention. So join us in showing up this week for both local and national campaigns to stop fossil fuel projects, move forward in a just transition to clean energy, and deepen our community resilience in the face of climate catastrophe.

Take action for climate justice by becoming a sustaining donor!
This Earth Month, we’ve been hard at work advocating for climate bills in the Spring Oregon Legislative Session, escalating campaigns to Stop Zenith Energy, fight for equitable shade tree coverage in Portland, win 100% electricity in new buildings, and more. This is a critical moment for us to keep up momentum, and we can’t do this alone.
Our goal is for 100 new people to become monthly donors during Earth Month. Whether you can give $5, $15, or $50 monthly, your contribution is a huge help. Support us this Earth Month — and every month — by making a sustaining donation to 350PDX. Thank you for your support, and for being in the fight!

We will hear from frontline leaders of fights to stop fossil fuels from across the country, grounding ourselves in the legacy of Indigenous leadership in fossil fuel resistance, and learn from those leading the charge against the Willow project, as well as from youth organizers about ways to skill up and plug into upcoming campaigns.
