With excitement, Oregon Just Transition Alliance invites you to join us on September 8th and Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice in Oregon! In Oregon, frontline communities of our alliance have endorsed an intersectional climate justice platform: we oppose construction of fossil fuel infrastructure, we oppose hateful policies like Measure 105, and we support frontline leaders developing solutions that change the rules and draw down wealth and power, like the Portland Clean Energy Fund. Across the country, and around the world, our communities will Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice. We rise for climate action to communicate to global and local leaders that a strong US climate movement exists and to tell everyone in the US that the time has come to hold our leaders accountable.
Who: A movement of thousands, led by Oregon Just Transition Alliance, a statewide network of Oregon’s frontline communities.
Where: Glenhaven Park, 7900 NE Siskiyou St, Portland, OR 97213
When: September 8th, 2018

Following September 8th, OJTA members are joining our frontline leaders from across the nation to continue to build our people power during the It Takes Roots week of actions in the Bay Area. We will participate in local tours of the frontlines of climate injustice, and will attend a Solutions to Solidarity Summit (Sol2Sol) on September 11th. Interested in learning more?

We call upon Oregon’s environmental, labor, racial, social, and economic justice communities and allies to stand with us and support the leadership of most-impacted people. A strong US Climate movement DOES exist, and we’re fighting to fix a broken, unsustainable economy. Here in Oregon, impacted communities, workers, and climate-minded cities and townships are already leading the way. Our communities are identifying solutions that will address the climate realities faced by frontline communities. We demand that leaders commit to strong solutions anchored in economic and racial justice. And we leverage our growing power to make sure those leaders honor their commitments.
