Chase Bank – Outside West Salem Branch
Wallace Rd. NW & Glen Creek Rd. NW
JP Morgan Chase is the worst of the big banks financially supporting fossil fuel companies and projects, including the company behind the proposed Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal and 230-mile pipeline in Southern Oregon. Come with us to send a message to Chase that this is unacceptable; and to encourage Chase customers to move their money to local community-oriented banks and credit unions. This is part of an ongoing national campaign with actions in several cities. Along with other 350 chapters and allies in Oregon, we’ll highlight Chase’s involvement with the company behind Jordan Cove.
Friday September 27 from 5-7 pm
Funeral Procession & Memorial for Salmon
Wallace Marine Park to Riverfront Park
As the temperatures rise, the waters warm, and habitats are destroyed, we are losing too many of our relations! Join our funeral procession and memorial ceremony for the salmon who once ran the waters of our Salem creeks, and who are now facing global extinction. Bring your prayers, songs, instruments, flowers, and pictures for a time of remembrance, healing and gathering strength. Meet at Wallace Marine Park. Our allies in the Salem DSA Ecosocialist Working Group will lead us in a symbolic funeral procession over the bike/pedestrian bridge to Riverfront Park.
