PDX Climate Strike

September 4 @ 10:30 am

Free

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.

Across the world millions of people are stopping business as usual to take action on the climate crisis. Join us!
