We have two exciting training opportunities for you next week! Join us for our “How a Bill Becomes a Law in Oregon” training on Monday, Jan 29, and our “Organizing 101” training on Tuesday, Jan 30.

How a bill becomes a law in Oregon (virtual training)

Mon, Jan 29, from 7-8PM on zoom – learn more and register here

350PDX is hosting a virtual training on “How a bill becomes a law in Oregon” right before Oregon’s 2024 short legislative session begins. Learn how bills are made, how to track them through the legislative session, and how to make your voice heard alongside others in the 350PDX and climate justice community. In recent years, Oregon has passed some exciting legislation relating to climate justice and reducing our state’s environmental impact. We’ll share about some of the climate bills you will want to follow this session and show how you can get involved in policy advocacy.

Organizing 101 (in-person training)

Join us for an in-person “Organizing 101” training to learn more about how to turn your awareness and activism into strategic community organizing! We’re go over some 101 organizing principles and skill-building. Whether you’re brand new to organizing or have been doing the work for years, you’re welcome at the training!

Topics we’ll cover:

  • Community Organizing — The Power of the Majority
  • The Role of an Organizer — Why Organize?

This is also a good time to come and pickup flyers, posters, yard signs, etc. to put up in your neighborhood. This will also be a food and drink potluck!
