Climate Change Top Issue

This is an Action Alert from the League of Women Voters of Oregon —

CLIMATE LEGISLATION IS OUR TOP ISSUE
Date: February 21, 2020
To: All League Members and Oregonians
From: Rebecca Gladstone, LWVOR President
Julie Chapman and Claudia Keith, Climate Portfolio
WE NEED SUPPORTERS IN THE CAPITOL DAILY 
THESE NEXT TWO WEEKS
We want to be in the halls, in the House and Senate chambers, and in our legislators’ offices – making sure they know how important it is to pass climate legislation in 2020.

 

The Oregon Greenhouse Gas Initiative (SB 1530 and HB 4167 – identical bills) is broadly supported throughout the state. Thousands have submitted testimony and published opinion pieces, from public health providers, to your League. We recognize the urgency to address this Climate Crisis.
If you have legislators who might walkout over the climate bill, please contact them immediately to let them know how important it is to you that they remain to vote.
Find your legislators here. If you are uncertain of their stand on the Oregon Greenhouse Gas Initiative, thank them for supporting this thoughtful approach to reducing our emissions.
PLEASE JOIN US DURING THE NEXT WEEKS IN SALEM!
WE WILL MAKE SURE LEGISLATORS KNOW WE ARE COUNTING ON THEM TO VOTE!

Because schedules shift daily (even hourly now!), we encourage you to
sign up for “Get Involved” updates from Renew Oregon, for the most up-to-date information on what is happening in the capitol. We rely on Renew Oregon, the large coalition LWVOR works with on climate legislation.

 

Questions? Contact Julie Chapman, bugthewonderdog@gmail.com or Claudia Keith, cakeith1@yahoo.com.

Roseburg #Climate Strike

On September 20th, the League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley, Douglas County Global Warming Coalition, and Umpqua Watersheds are joining the Climate Strikes Coalition and 350.org partners from around the world to activate thousands of people around the country who want real solutions to the climate crisis.

FC_CS_Social-09-6%Hundreds of Climate Strike events are being planned across the country. People of all ages will come together in the streets all over the world on September 20th as part of a Global Climate Strike. And Roseburg citizens will be among them.

Join us on Friday, Sep. 20 at Noon to 1PM in front of Fred Meyer on Garden Valley Blvd. Bring your signs! Take photos! Be a participant. Be able to tell your children that you did something about this planetary emergency.

There’s no denying the climate crisis is already here. Over the years, we’ve watched storms, floods, fires and heat waves devastate communities from Puerto Rico to Portland. In the meantime, our elected officials have
continued to protect the oil, coal, and gas billionaires responsible for this crisis.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We know what the solutions are, and we have the means to implement them.

Together, we have the power to take our destiny out of the hands of fossil fuel billionaires and their corrupt enablers. Join us on Garden Valley Blvd. on September 20th for the Global Climate Strike.

Our communities, our planet, and our future depend on a climate movement that reaches all corners of this country. To change everything, it takes everyone — and with your help we can build a sustainable world for generations to come.

Please stand with us!

In Solidarity,

League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley, Douglas County Global Warming Coalition, and Umpqua Watersheds.
