December 12th, the day after the UN Paris Climate Talks end, people all across the world are taking to the streets to make sure the people, not the politicians, have the last word. Regardless of what gets decided in Paris, we know that climate leadership is coming from the ground up with the grassroots and cities leading the way.
In Portland, we’ll gather at the base of the Tilikum Bridge, the Bridge of the People, for a short rally with music and speakers, before marching across in a call for climate justice. See below for map of meetup location.
This peaceful, family friendly event will be outside, so dress to stay warm and dry. There will be warm drinks - tea, coffee, hot cider - and some snacks available.
11:30 AM - Gathering starts with music
12:00 PM - Short rally featuring Kathleen Dean Moore & other local leaders for climate justice
12:30 PM - March across Tilikum Crossing
