SAVE THE DATE: December 12th, the day after the UN Paris Climate Talks end, people all across the world are taking to the streets to make sure the people, not the politicians, have the last word. Regardless of what gets decided in Paris, we know that climate leadership is coming from the ground up with the grassroots and cities leading the way.
In Portland, things are shaping up for a great event!
We’ll gather at the base of the Tilikum Bridge, the Bridge of the People, for a short rally with music and speakers, before marching across in an inspiring and beautiful call for climate justice.
This peaceful, family friendly event will be outside, so dress to stay warm and dry.
