After four years of increasingly hateful rhetoric and violence from both our far-right government and local fascist groups, we are about to head into the 2020 election cycle which is sure to only amplify these problems. The questions remains: How do we keep us safe?

We think now is an important time to step back to critically examine and assess what is meant by terms like "community defense" and how does it serve our larger political struggle?

Please join us for a panel with representatives from the Portland DSA, PopMob, Jobs with Justice, and more as we grapple with these questions.

PICA is ADA-Compliant. ASL and childcare will be available. If you require childcare, please email panelchildcare@gmail.com. Food & Beverages will be available - with vegan and gluten-free options.

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!

Jan 31 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!
