Environmental Justice 101
– Social Justice Action Center
Do you want to help mobilize our community around the People's Climate Mobilization?
This year, the frontline communities of the Oregon Just Transition Alliance (OJTA) are taking a central, leading role in the Portland People’s Climate Movement (PCM). 350PDX is joining in solidarity, led by those who are most impacted by ecological injustice, to advance the Portland PCM Platform.
Join 350PDX for an Environmental Justice 101 workshop as the first step to be involved in all aspects of planning and organizing our community for the People's Climate Mobilization!
RSVP online to gaurantee a spot: http://350pdx.nationbuilder.com/environmental_justice_101
Frontline leadership does not diminish the valued participation of 350PDX and other organizations who have led and participated in PCM in years prior. This year’s PCM supports the vision and leadership of people who haven’t been centered, from planning to implementation, with the full partnership of allied organizations and individuals. The proper role of mainstream groups in climate justice is to uplift and support the vision of frontline communities. Organizations and individuals who want to participate are encouraged to come to this workshop to learn OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon's analysis and prepare to take on a role of support in planning Portland PCM.
We’re stronger together, guided by those who are hurt first and worst by injustice.
At the end of the workshop, you'll get plugged in to all the work happening in our city. Topics will be wide ranging including what's in the works, how you can get involved, and why we’re taking an environmental justice approach to PCM.
Look forward to seeing you there!
