Urgent Climate Action Needed Now!

The most important thing you can do to help make this happen is to submit public comment on the proposed legislation. Please email senr.exhibits@oregonlegislature.gov with a public comment urging strong and equitable climate action in Salem. This is the simplest, most useful thing you can do right now.

Sample message: In the 2020 legislative session, I urge you to support the strongest possible climate bill that is both effective and just. Please ensure that a significant share of the Investment Grants reach Oregonians who live in the most negatively impacted communities so they can address the effects of climate change. (Sign with your name and location)

If you want to do more than email, On February 11 we will be traveling to Salem to create the political will for a livable planet. This will be the biggest Salem Climate Action in 2020
Show our strength by standing together. Send a message to state legislators and Governor Brown to stand up to the powerful oil industry and pass real climate action. If you show up for one action on climate legislation in 2020, make it this one.

GROWING GARDENS / Jason Skipton, Executive Director will speak about this local non-profit that uses the experience of growing food in schools, backyards and correctional facilities to cultivate healthy, equitable communities. Our soil is a critical and often overlooked, part of climate action. Learn how Growing Gardens is creating change with social justice at its core.

CLIMATE EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS / Climate Reality Leader Lynn Merrick will discuss The SAGE Team on Climate Education which develops and offers lessons, workforce information, and service-learning opportunities for middle and high school students in order to equip students in our area with knowledge about their region’s climate action goals and solutions and to empower students to take meaningful action to achieve these goals by 2030.

THE FACES OF CLIMATE CHANGE / Climate Reality Leader Kate Gaertner & Team will share their collaborative social media project. The Faces of Climate Change Project Team is creating an interactive, visual campaign to capture individuals’ concern and growing awareness of the climate crisis, as well as to amplify what citizens are doing to take action personally in their everyday lives and politically both locally and nationally, to build resiliency and to support meaningful policies in support of climate change mitigation.
