Divest the Globe


After the Trump administration’s decision

to exit the Paris climate agreement, many organizations and private citizens decided

to divest their money from banks that

finance pipelines and the fossil fuel industry

as a way to fight back.

Raging Grannies Eugene, Cascadia Action

Network, and 350.Eugene organized a direct

action to pressure REI, whose investments continue to support the fossil fuel industry. 





.My "best" of this year is the Raging Grannies.  This group of indomitable, tuneful, passionate, cheerful and funny women appears almost monthly before the Eugene City Council.  They use their three minutes in the public forum to inspire us to action dressed in homemade costumes to sing familiar tunes with customized lyrics to meet the issue of the day.  They have urged us to ban coal trains, reduce our impact on climate change and divest from US Bank.  They represent the best tome of working hard for a better world while enjoying friendship, song, and silliness.

Government Again Seeks Climate Suit Dismissal

Government attorneys filed an emergency motion with the appeals court late Monday.  A spokesman for the Department of Justice indicated to The Register-Guard last Friday that the government would continue trying to keep the case from going to trial.

"GRANNY" DONNA - NARRATOR

The Juliana v. U.S. lawsuit, led by 21 youth plaintiffs against the federal government for causing climate change, will go to trial on October 29, 2018 in Eugene, Oregon. People in every state are standing up to organize a rally at their federal courthouse in support of these brave climate warriors as they head into court to face the Trump administration. We need your help spreading the word about these rallies so that these plaintiffs know they have the American people behind them!

Video Project Interview by Kelsie B. Evans

Journalism Student at the University of Oregon

"In times of increased political, social, and economic divisiveness, unifying distinct campaigns within the movement for environmental and social justice is essential to promote policies and community action that create a more sustainable coexistence with the planet’s ecological systems. “One Cause, One Voice” is an effort to transcend trivial differences in ideology and superficial rivalries within the environmental movement to increase its collective strength and influence by uniting over common interests. It’s a reminder that a stable climate and clean land, air, and water are necessary to promote the health and welfare of all human beings, regardless of our differences in ideology or culture. “One Cause, One Voice” represents the potential to achieve widespread environmental and social justice through cooperation, collaboration, and mutual support."  (PIELC website)
