Here are the most effective actions you can take right now to fight for climate action and racial justice.

Hold New Climate Polluter Accountable!

With ODOE’s blessing, Perennial embarked on the illegal construction of what will be one of the largest climate polluters in Oregon. The Perennial fracked gas plant would produce roughly 1 million tons of climate-changing pollution each year, putting it in the top five or six of Oregon’s greenhouse gas polluters.

This is unacceptable in the midst of a burgeoning climate crisis! ODOE and Governor Brown must take action to protect Oregon from Perennial’s headlong rush towards fracked gas pollution.

Action: 

Join us in urging the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE), the Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council (EFSC) and Governor Kate Brown to hold Perennial Wind Chaser Station, a fracked gas power plant proposed near Umatilla, OR, accountable for breaking Oregon’s rules and laws.

Deadline: October 31st

DLCD will be hosting a series of focused webinars in September to describe the intention of the Framework, review its contents, and answer questions.
