IN THE FACE OF EXTINCTION, WE SAY REBELLION!
THIS IS A CLIMATE EMERGENCY.
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, Twitter 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.
