1)(April 1st)
Fossil Fools Day is a national day of action that targets the Fossil Fuel Industry as a perpetrator of climate change. CRT is helping folks to organize actions throughout the NW to call-out the Fossil Fuel empire for its role in continued environmental and social injustices throughout the world. This Fossil Fools Day pull a prank that packs a punch!

2)The NW Convergence for Climate Action is a week-long teach-in and action camp that has sister events in the Southeast US and the UK. It is a great opportunity to build community, learn about activism and environmental justice issues spanning the globe, organize with folks in the region and continue to build the movement to address the root causes of climate change. We are still in the planning stages for this event and hope to have a location set soon.

3)Additionally we are holding open Cascadia Rising Tide meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 6pm at the Red & Black Cafe in Portland (corner of SE 12th & Oak). If you want to get involved in planning or organizing for any of these events or campaigns then come-out to our meetings and get involved!
