Push Back on Trump For a Healthy River: Press Conference

Portland City Hall, 1221 SW 4th
1221 SW 4th Ave
Portland, OR 97204, USA (map)



Join this rally and press conference Thursday, October 19th, 11 am at Portland City Hall to tell the Trump administration and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that there is NO excuse to further delay, minimize, or compromise the cleanup of the Portland Harbor, and 11-mile EXTREMELY toxic stretch of the Willamette River.

Mothers and children have suffered far too long from exposure to the unhealthy fish.

Does this sound different from what you know about our inviting, swimmable river? It's the hidden side to our city.

Over 140 fortune-500 corporations, local businesses, and government agencies created this hazardous mess over the 100 plus years, and it continues to hover at the bottom of our river from the Broadway Bridge all the way to Sauvie Island.

  • If you care about having drinkable water after the big earthquake hits Portland...
  • If you care about Native American treaty rights...
  • If you care about everyone being able to eat safe, healthy catfish, carp or bass someday...
  • If you believe all local communities deserve the right to access green jobs....

Then this is what you must DEFEND and UPHOLD:

An ACCOUNTABLE and TIMELY cleanup of the Portland Harbor Superfund Site starting NOW. #OurRiver

Your Voice is Critical. Please come out Thursday.

In solidarity,

Portland Harbor Community Coalition
