Global Action to End Fossil Fuels

September 15 & 17

Fridays for the Future is calling for a global climate strike September 15th and a national coalition (including XRUS members) is organizing a massive march in NYC on September 17th to highlight the climate crisis and demand that the Biden administration declare a climate emergency and implement policies to end fossil fuel extractions and exports, and stop the financing of fossil fuels.

Our west coast XR collaboration, is calling on those not going to NYC to organize statewide actions that will encourage Governors to put pressure on the Biden administration, prioritize strong statewide action, and in the case of Oregon, to put pressure on the treasury to divest pension funds from fossil fuels.

We are joining together with Youth Climate Strikes around the state, Divest Oregon, 350 and many others for planning. We hope to draw in as many environmental and social justice organizations as possible.  

Mark your calendars for September 15th  as our statewide day of action in conjunction with FFF’s global climate strike.  To join the coalition or be involved in the action planning, write to us at .
