About this Event

Light refreshments available at 5:30 p.m. Program begins at 6 p.m.

Public comment on the Residential Infill Project (RIP) will open in December, and we invite you to get final updates on the proposal, ask questions and learn about the history that shaped how Portland is zoned today.

Hear a presentation from RIP Project Manager Morgan Tracy, who will answer your questions covering the process, who this project will impact, how changes in state law affect the proposal and more.

As we look to the future, it's also important to understand our past. We'll learn about Portland's zoning history and how it affects us today from the team behind “Historical Context of Racist Planning,” a Bureau of Planning & Sustainability study.

A Q&A will follow each presentation--an opportunity to discuss your questions directly with City staff.

Open to all, ticket not required for entry.

Hundreds of people will gather in Salem to demand that Governor Kate Brown use her authority to stop this destructive project once and for all. Can you join me in Salem on Thursday for this important event?

Governor Brown: The time is NOW!
When: Thursday, November 21. 11:00 AM. 
Where: State Capitol, Salem (900 Court St.)

Please wear red!
Lunch: Hot and fresh Tamales will be provided for lunch, as well as sandwich fixins' for the travel home.

Carpools: To join a carpool or be in the "Cool Bus" going down for free, please email Dineen, at dineen@350pdx.org. (We are especially looking for people who can offer rides!)

In the next few months, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will try to rubber stamp this project. At the same time, the Trump Administration is attempting to rewrite important environmental laws, like the Clean Water Act, to take away states’ authority to stop fossil fuel projects like this. This is deeply wrong, unjust, and demands action from all of us.

It is a crime for Governor Brown to claim to be a "climate champion" while remaining silent on Jordan Cove—what would be our state's single largest emitter⁠ of greenhouse gases. I hope you'll join me in Salem next Thursday to echo the call to #StopJordanCove once and for all.

P.S. - Know you can't make it next week? We'll miss youbut you can still join us in demanding action! Click here to call or send a message to Governor Brown right now.

2019 ACTION NIGHTS series: where we'll be joining together every other week in community to take meaningful and strategic action together. From January to June, when the 2019 Oregon Legislature is in session, many Action Nights will be centered upon what's happening in the Capitol, with opportunities to hear direct reports from our Conservation Director and Lobbyist, and hold our elected officials accountable to the people who got them elected. Action Nights will be all about praxis: we'll be learning and growing our organizing skills, then we'll immediately put our new skills to use around a current issue happening in the session.

There is no bigger economic problem facing our state and nation than economic inequality. That's why we're excited to invite you a talk by Les Leopold, one of the most insightful thinkers on the issue of economic inequality and author of Runaway Inequality.

What brought us to the extreme inequality of today? And how can we organize to confront the problem? Les will break it down for us.

Cost: $5 -20 donation requested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. A copy of Runaway Inequality is included with your donation (first 100 only).

This event is co-sponsored by the Economic Justice Action Group of the First Unitarian Church, the Oregon Center for Public Policy, Portland Jobs with Justice, Interfaith Alliance on Poverty, Oregon Coalition of Christian Voices, and Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, KBOO community Radio
