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, 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.
