PDX Climate Strike

Click here to view all Climate Strike events throughout Oregon

In Portland, following the lead of youth from high schools, middle schools and youth organizations, folks will be rallying outside of City Hall at 10:30 a.m. 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.

RSVP

On the Eastbank Esplanade, there will be a Climate Strike Festival near OMSI / the Tilikum Crossing Bridge, with opportunities for folks to become empowered in action for climate justice. 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.

Can’t strike? Come march on your lunch break! Get off early and come down to the festival!

Across the world millions of people are stopping business as usual to take action on the climate crisis. Join us! We are nonviolent, peaceful, and family-friendly.

This festival and march is being organized by a broad coalition of youth and adult individuals and organizations, including 350PDX, Center for Sustainable Economy, Columbia Riverkeeper, Democratic Socialists of America PDX, Extinction Rebellion PDX, Jobs with Justice PDX, OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon, Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, Pacific Climate Warriors, PCHRP – Portland Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines, Portland Clean Energy Fund, Portland Harbor Community Coalition, Portland Rising Tide, Portland Youth Climate Council, and Sierra Club – Oregon Chapter, Sunrise Movement PDX, and more.
