From mobilizing to halt drilling efforts in the Arctic, to organizing in coalition for a 20,000 person climate strike, to fighting for our forests, and to stopping dozens of new polluting fossil fuel projects across the region, it's now been ten years since 350PDX formed as a grassroots organization for climate justice. There's a lot to celebrate!
Join us on Thursday, November 2nd to celebrate a decade in the climate justice movement.
What to Expect:
Guests will mingle through the refurbished ironworking warehouse at The Redd on Salmon, while interacting with art displays that showcase our power as a collective movement. We offer a prompt--what will our future movement look back on over the next decade? As we approach key turning points in this capitalist climate crisis, what successes and campaigns will we have accomplished by 2033? All are invited to this celebration of movement-building for climate justice in Portland! Past, present, and future volunteers and community members will gather for food, art, music, and other activities, building together to create a world free of exploitation and oppression.
What: 350PDX 10-Year Anniversary Party!
