|Want to help make the PDX Climate Strike amazing? You're in the right place!|
On Sept 20 the youth of Portland, along with a large coalition of adult organizations including 350PDX, are holding a massive strike rally outside City Hall, followed by a march across the Hawthorne Bridge, and finishing at an all day Climate Festival on the Eastbank Esplanade by OMSI.
