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.

"Risk Bonds – So We Don't Pay For An Industrial Disaster"

Risk bonds will hold fossil fuel and chemical companies accountable. This is a proactive "Polluter Pays" plan. The costs of disasters are often "externalized" to the public. Bonding will cover those risks. Multnomah County is on the verge of taking risk bonding action. Come to the Rumble:
