PDX Climate Strike
September 4, 2019 @ 10:30 amFree
In Portland, following the lead of youth from high schools, middle schools and youth organizations, we will be holding a rally outside of City Hall at 10.30am to demand an Oregon Green New Deal, and an end to fossil fuels here in Oregon.
This is followed by a march through downtown Portland, across the Hawthorne Bridge and over the the Eastbank Esplanade.
On the Eastbank Esplanade we will be holding a Climate Strike Festival near OMSI / the Tilikum Crossing Bridge, with opportunities for folks to become empowered in action for climate justice – 12pm – 5pm.
This means trainings such as – Climate Justice 101; What is the Green New Deal?; Organizing 101; Civil Disobedience; Volunteer Orientations; and more.
The festival is open to all, with art builds, trainings, climate movement orientations, music tents, film screenings, food trucks, and a place to build community and gain the skills and knowledge we need to end the climate crisis.
