Oregonians, impacted landowners, and community groups opposed to the Jordan Cove Energy Project and Pacific Connector Pipeline are headed to Salem to show our opposition to the Jordan Cove project and to tell the State Land Board to Stand with us in finality against this dangerous gas export proposal.

Despite denial of federal permits for the project, Oregon agencies continue to move forward with permitting. Many have been fighting this proposal for over a decade and it is time our elected officials stood with the people of Oregon by denying this project. We must hold our elected officials accountable, and remind them that their job is to protect the waterways and people of Oregon. We are headed to Salem to tell them that enough is enough, it is time to shut down Jordan Cove LNG!

The State Land Board, made up of Governor Brown, Ted Wheeler, and Jeanne Atkins, oversees the Department of State Lands which is currently up against a decision on removal fill permits for the Jordan Cove project. Their decision deadline is Friday June 10th.

The State Land Board meeting is June 14 at 10:00 AM. We will show up in red and those who are interested can attend the State Land Board meeting. After the meeting, there will be a rally outside the building with art and signs. We will continue the rally by marching to the state capitol building. If you are coming, please RSVP here:

If you’re interested in carpooling to Salem as a driver or rider, please call, text, or email me by 12noon on Monday, June 13th.

Join Neighbors for Clean Air, the Northwest Environmental Defense Center, and 350 PDX as we tour some of Portland's worst air polluters.

Portlanders are more aware than ever that our airshed is full of toxic pollution. On this tour, we will ride to or near the sources of major air pollution in order to better inform people about what is going on, how we got here, and what we can do to get clean air.

Bring your signs, masks, costumes. We'll bring good air-themed music. When we're finished, we'll stop in somewhere for a drink to chat & unwind.

There has been an outpouring of grief, mourning, anger, and solidarity in the wake of the horrific hate crime targeting the LGBT community in Orlando in which 50 people were murdered. Thousands of ordinary people have attended inspiring rallies in Solidarity with the victims, to mourn, show their pride, and continue the struggle for LGBT liberation and opposition to all oppression.

Meanwhile politicians, the media, and those at the top of society are attempting to exploit this tragedy by turning homophobia into Islamophobic bigotry, promising to further erode our civil liberties and increase state surveillance, and outdoing each other with threats of doubling down on the disastrous war on terror which has devastated the Middle East and led to the instability which has created fertile ground for groups like ISIS.

Please join us for a discussion on how we can fight back against homophobia, transphobia and fight for LGBT liberation while rejecting Islamophobia and standing building solidarity with all the oppressed and marginalized in our society.

No #homophobia -- no to all forms of oppression. #lgbtpride #lgbt #lgbtq #gayliberation #socialism #equality #feminism #muslimlivesmatter #gaylivesmatter #translivesmatter #blacklivesmatter #feminism #feminist #antiimperialism #lgbtequality #transgender #solidarity #love

Kick off Pride Weekend with action! Rally against the Trans-Pacific Partnership and its egregious human rights violations at Congressman Earl Blumenauer's office.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP, which has been signed but not ratified,

  • creates no human rights accountability for Brunei, where same-sex relationships are punishable by stoning, or Malaysia, where being LGBTTQ can mean imprisonment
  • privileges profit of pharmaceutical companies over access to medicine
  • offshores good U.S. jobs to create jobs with unliveable wages along the Pacific Rim
  • gives corporations rights to sue countries through the Investor-State Dispute Settlement mechanism
  • creates closer trading ties with Malaysia, a country known for its slave labor and human trafficking
  • further consolidates U.S. power and imperialism and perpetuates a U.S. driven world economy
  • threatens indigenous sovereignty and way of life
  • rolls back environmental standards put in place under the last Bush administration

  • On Friday June 17th at Noon, join Oregon Fair Trade and allies, show your pride, rally, and march,all to keep pressure on Congress, specifically Earl Blumenauer, to vote NO on this destructive trade deal!

    We are pleased to host: Dr. Erin Moore, a Portland-based Naturopathic physician and founder of the new non-profit ParticipAid. When the magnitude 7.9 earthquake devastated Nepal last year, Dr. Erin was living in a village in one of the hardest hit regions of the country.

    Brainstorm ways to bring more people, and organizations, into the fold as we look to grow this campaign

    Resistance Continues!
    Just three weeks after the Mosier oil train derailment, Union Pacific is planning to restart sending oil trains through Oregon and the Columbia Gorge!
    A new report released on Thursday reveals that Union Pacific is “solely responsible”
    for the Mosier derailment. “When it comes down to it, it’s Union Pacific’s failure to maintain its track led to this incident,” said Sarah Feinberg, who heads up the Federal Rail Administration.
    Join us for a community meeting Sunday for a night of scheming and dreaming against Union Pacific and oil-by-rail in Oregon.
