Upcoming Events and Actions
Join Oregon Surfriders, 350 Salem OR and allies from all over Oregon to say no to the Trump administration plan to open all US coastal waters for oil and gas production.
After the rally and press conference at the capitol we’ll go to the Red Lion Hotel to submit comments to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and hold signs on the sidewalk on Market St. This is an open house, not a hearing. No oral testimony will be taken, but written comments can be submitted

CLEAN ENERGY JOBS BILL
The Clean Energy Jobs Bill is back before the legislature and needs our support! Introduced as HB4001 & SB1507, the CEJ will lower Oregon’s greenhouse gas emissions by adopting a cap, trade, and invest plan that will cap greenhouse gas emissions from major sources, trade emission permits to allow maximum market efficiency in reducing carbon pollution, and invest proceeds to help Oregon transition to a greener, cleaner future. 2018 is the 4th session for climate legislation in Oregon. This is the year to get it done.
Come to the Capitol to show your support:
