Join our Chapter Leadership Team! Nominations due Friday April 23.

Anyone who is a chapter member is eligible to run. You do not need to have completed the training. The chapter co-chair positions are the only role that must be filled by a trained Climate Reality Leader. Taking the new training now? Join us!

We're looking for people interested in taking on a leadership role in our chapter.

We have a great team currently and would love to add more team members! Please review the positions below to see if you find a good fit for yourself. Please also, review the timelines below so that you can self nominate if you are interested in running in this year's elections!

Tonight: April Cook and Serve! 5:30 pm

In this Cook & Serve event, Chef Linda Tyler will demonstrate how to make vegan Vegetable Lasagna with a vegan Marinara Sauce. This opportunity is organized by Ashwin Prabhu, a member of the Climate-Friendly Food Committee of the Climate Reality Project, Portland Chapter.

Watch this cooking demo on Zoom at 5:30pm on Tuesday, April 20 and cook along if you like. Then, on Saturday, April 24, you can join others cooking at home to make Hearty Vegan Vegetable Lasagna for 45 people experiencing homelessness who are staying at the Clark Center. If you don't want to cook, you could help deliver what others cook to the shelter. You can make a lot or a little. If you want to contribute, but can't make the featured recipe, Ashwin can help you identify what you can make (like a side dish or Corn Chowder, for example), please sign up here.

If these dates won't work for you, Climate Reality will record the demo, which you can see on Climate Reality's YouTube channel. You are also encouraged to make the dishes for your family at home!
