Earlier this year, thirteen hundred Oregonians decorated recycled cardboard to creatively express their concerns about climate change. On February 17th, the pieces were assembled into a 117-foot mosaic of a salmon in Medford, generating national attention. http://rogueclimateart.org/
On Wednesday May 22 the salmon is migrating to Salem!
Network with leaders & celebrate climate action. Trained citizen lobby teams will ask legislators to support a predictable, revenue-neutral carbon tax. With Oregon’s proud history of bipartisan problem-solving & innovation on tough issues Oregon can again lead the country on humanity’s greatest challenge yet: climate disruption.
