This summer we launched the Capping Carbon Campaign. We can reclaim our democracy not with money but with grassroots power. A key strategy initially of this campaign is to ensure all Portland area Legislators are climate champions. Our first need is to identify constituents in each of the legislative districts who will use their influence with their legislators (and deploy a wide range of lobbying best practices) to ensure that all our legislators will take the needed actions to address the climate crisis.
Many of the core Portland legislators will be lobbied by members of the neighborhood teams. We especially need help with the following House Districts: 25, 37, 47, 49, 50 and 51, the following Senate Districts: 19, 20 and 25, as well as other core Portland districts.
The purpose of this Campaign is to ensure a habitable planet by reducing all greenhouse gases to zero as soon as possible, fostering agriculture and forestry practices that maximize carbon sequestration, increasing resilience in our built and natural environment, while achieving a just transition to an economy based on renewables.
