IN THE FACE OF EXTINCTION, WE SAY REBELLION!

THIS IS A CLIMATE EMERGENCY.

Extinction Rebellion in Portland, Oregon – XRPDX – is a local chapter in the international Extinction Rebellion movement and one of 60 groups in XR US.

XRPDX organizes people in the Portland, Oregon Metro area:

  • By taking action (online and in person) to resist fossil fuel infrastructure, educate the broader public about the climate emergency, and support our allies in social justice struggles
  • By spreading the word: a weekly newsletter; a website and blog; and social media (Facebook and Instagram)

We are building a supportive activist culture of appreciation and skill-sharing. We share a love of the natural world and a vision of a more just and equitable world.

Insure Our Future Action @ Chubb PDX

As part of the Global Week of Action, XRPDX will be participating in the Insure our Future Campaign. Together, we will hold the insurance industry accountable for its role in the climate crisis.


What: Action Campaign, Insure Our Future, Chubb PDX
Where: Pioneer Tower, 888 S.W. Fifth Avenue Portland, OR 97204
When: Thursday, February 29th; 12pm to 1pm

Without insurance, most new fossil fuel projects cannot go ahead and existing ones must close. This makes insurance the Achilles heel of the fossil fuel industry. On February 29, Portland activists will join others around the globe: together we will hold the insurance industry accountable for its role in the climate crisis.

Be part of the action as our community demands insurance companies stop insuring dirty fossil fuel projects and commit to insuring a healthy livable future. We are looking for assistance with flyering and holding signs.
