Governor Kitzhaber is holding a fundraising dinner in Portland at the Benson Hotel. He is raising funds for his campaign for unprecedented 4th term as Oregon's Governor. Only the very wealthy will be attending the dinner which has a minimum cost of $500 per plate. These business leaders are not likely to raise the issue of climate change with the Governor. However, the future of our children and of our planet require that the Governor commit himself to denying permits to gas, oil and coal terminals in Oregon and southern Washington and to do everything in his power to replace fossil fuels with sustainable, renewable forms of energy. Therefore he needs to hear our voices. He needs to know that voters care about climate change. You can help convey this message by coming to a rally in front of the Benson Hotel (309 SW Broadway in Portland) at 5:30pm on Friday. Please come and let your voice, and your signs, be heard and seen. This event is planned by Portland Rising Tide with a specific invitation to 350 PDX. Please bring signs if you can.
