February POP Meeting
Thursday, February 28
6:00-8:00 PM
Route 30 Bottles and Brews
317 East 2nd Street, The Dalles

We need you, even in this weather! There is a lot going on that requires grassroots efforts to fight for what's right. Please come and bring a friend or two. We have local issues, Oregon issues, and national issues and ACTIONS on our agenda. We will also have two special guest speakers: Sonny Mehta from Renew Oregon, and Peter Cornelison from Columbia Gorge Climate Action Network to talk to us about HB 2020, the Oregon Carbon Action Plan/Clean Energy Jobs. This is the most important piece of Climate Change legislation in Oregon, so please come to find out more and to find out how you can help support it.

It’s never been more important for us to show up. The future of this bill depends on us keeping the pressure on and the public turnout high. This Friday, lawmakers are headed to The Dalles because they want to hear from YOU.

Now’s our chance to show the breadth of statewide support for Oregon Carbon Action Plan / Clean Energy Jobs. Can you attend a meeting with lawmakers from noon - 3 p.m. at The Dalles Civic Auditorium (323 East 4th St.)? Better yet, can you sign up to speak your support? We'll explain how at POP Thursday evening.

Big polluters, like oil and industrial companies, and other opponents have ramped up their opposition. They’re telling lies and spreading fear. They’re sending emails to their membership lists, just like we are today, trying to get as many opponents to attend Friday’s meeting as possible. Opponents had a solid showing last Friday in Salem during a similar hearing, so we’ve got to make sure our supporters turn out in force.

Spread the word, see you there!
