    100% Renewable Energy - City Council Hearing & Vote
    free

    NEW DATE: JUNE 1ST @ 2PM

    The City of Portland is poised to pass a new policy setting a goal to meet 100% of our community wide energy needs with renewable energy by 2050 and 100% of our electricity needs with renewable energy by 2030!

    Why does this matter? In order to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, we need rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and to transition off of fossil fuels! Transitioning our energy system to clean & renewable energy is an important way to both reduce our impact on the climate and create a sustainable local economy.

    Read a copy of the latest draft resolution online: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/auditor/article/636842

    The Mayor and Commissioner Chloe Eudaly are championing the policy, but we need a huge turnout to ensure our Mayor and Commissioners pass the policy in its strongest form!

    Here’s how you can help.

    1. Come to the hearing on June 1st.
    2. Call the Mayor and City Commissioners to express your support for 100% renewable energy (talking points and contact info below)
    3. Invite 5 friends to join you in supporting 100% renewable energy

    Let the City Council know:

    • You support a goal for 100% community wide renewable electricity by 2030
    • You support a goal for 100% community wide renewable energy (all sectors - electricity, transportation, heating & cooling, industrial processes) by 2050
    • Renewable energy solutions that are rooted in equity and social justice
    • Upon passing the resolution, the City and individual commissioners should testify in writing and/or in person to the Oregon Public Utility Commission against allowing PGE to build new gas plants at Carty.
    • Thank them for their strong leadership on a rapid transition to clean energy!

    Relocation Assistance Rally & Hearing

    Portland City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly has proposed the boldest tenant-protection law the city has ever seen: requiring landlords to pay relocation assistance to tenants displaced due to no-cause evictions or rent hikes. You can read more at the Willamette Week: http://www.wweek.com/news/city/2017/01/24/city-council-releases-plan-to-make-portland-landlords-pay-moving-costs-for-renters-they-evict-for-no-cause/

    This is HUGE, and we need EVERYONE who's able to join us next Thursday, February 2nd at Portland City Hall to demand our City Council pass relocation assistance for renters.

    We'll be hosting a rally at City Hall at 1pm, and the hearing itself will begin promptly at 2pm.

    If you have been or are at risk of being displaced from your home because of a no-cause eviction or rent increase, Portland City Council needs to hear from you! Please consider testifying in front of Council next Thursday, and contact Portland Tenants United to let us know you want to speak!

    You can also email or call City Council officers at the numbers & addresses below - in particular, Commissioners Saltzman, Fish, and Fritz need to hear from you. We encourage you to share your story with your elected officials, or just a short message of support: "relocation assistance would give displaced tenants a little room to breathe - please support Commissioner Eudaly's proposal next Thursday!"
