Join the next Fossil Fuel Resistance Team meeting!
In order to stop the climate crisis from getting worse, we have to keep the remaining fossil fuel reserves in the ground. The Pacific Northwest is currently facing many active proposals for new fossil fuel infrastructure that if built would lock us into the fossil fuel economy and its carbon pollution for decades to come. The Fossil Fuel Resistance team seeks to stop new fossil fuel projects from being built in Portland or to service the Portland metro area, and to engage in regional fights to stop all new fossil fuel infrastructure in the PNW and beyond!
Current fights



Stop Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline (down in Southern Oregon)
Zenith Energy – Oil Trains in Portland – Alberta tar sands is being covertly exported right under our noses
Stop Kalama Methanol Refinery – if built would be largest in the world
Perennial Wind Chaser – a nice sounding name for a proposed 415-megawatt fracked gas power plant in Central Oregon

If you’re new and want to get up to speed, please let Melanie know (team co-lead, melanie.plaut@gmail.com) and she can meet you 30 minutes before the start time to explain what the team is up to.

Come to the NE Portland Neighborhood meeting to find out about local and state wide climate initiatives and actions. We’d love to see you there!

Feb 28 Fri
Every Friday folks are assembling outside City Hall in an energetic and colorful vigil to keep the pressure on Mayor Ted Wheeler to shut down the Zenith tar sands terminal in NW Porland, and to raise awareness from people and cars passing by.
Bring signs or banners, or just bring yourself. Among the many things such a sign can say is “Fire Drill Fridays,” “Stop Zenith Energy,” “No More Bomb Trains,” “Mayor & Commissioners: Stand Strong!” 2×3 signs are big enough to be visible to walkers-by and drivers-by.
These vigils typically have strong representations from 350PDX, the Stop Zenith Energy Collaborative, the Raging Grannies, Red, Extinction Rebellion, several students from Portland Public Schools and PSU, and a 12 foot tall puppet and some excellent street theater!!

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 12-1 pm, in front of Portland City Hall. Let’s keep this growing!

Thom Hartmann

Friday, February 28 @ 7:30 PM

Powell's City of Books
1005 W Burnside St.
Portland, OR

In his new book, The Hidden History of the War on Voting (Berrett-Koehler), progressive radio host Thom Hartmann unveils the strategies and tactics that conservative elites in this country have used, from the foundation of the Electoral College to the latest voter ID laws, to protect their interests by preventing “the wrong people” – such as the poor, women, and people of color – from voting, while making it more convenient for the wealthy and white. He also lays out a variety of simple, common-sense ways that we the people can fight back and reclaim our right to rule through the ballot box.

Please RSVP here.

Please join Elva and others in the 350PDX community for two evenings of conflict management skills discussion and training.  All are invited, and if we can’t fit you all in the first time, this training will be offered again.

Unite Oregon and the twenty organizations of the Portland-Metro People's Coalition are hosting a Candidates Forum! Find out where the candidates for Portland City Council Commissioner Position 2 stand on immigrant and refugee rights and the PMPC platform http://bit.ly/PMPC2020.

In November 2020 the mayor and three city commissioner positions are up for election. We have the opportunity to make Portland into a city that is a healthy and nurturing place for everyone OR we can essentially maintain the status quo: a city designed mainly for the 1%. Which one will it be? That is the question for this Candidates Forum.

Unite Oregon is defending the rights of immigrants and refugees.
The PMPC’s 2020 Platform protects renters, supports our houseless neighbors, demands police accountability, criminal justice reform, environmental justice and ending money in politics, taxes the rich for quality public services and expands what public services do.

These are big ideas, and they will only be achieved by building power from below. We are committed to working together to build that strong, coordinated, unified and strategic grassroots power. But we also need government leaders who will support and stay accountable to our grassroots movements.
