***The amount you select to donate will be a DAILY PLEDGE for every day the Oregon Senate Republicans fail to show up to work. We will follow up with you when the Senate Republican walk-out ends with your final donation amount.***
***Please include your email so we can follow up with you when this all over***
If you'd prefer to make a one-time donation to support this effort (we strongly encourage a daily pledge if possible), you can do so HERE
In case you've missed it, Oregon's Senate Republicans have chosen to flee the state instead of showing up to do the job they were elected to do and take an "up or down" vote on the Clean Energy Jobs bill - a transformative climate and clean energy bill (as well as many other critical bills: Driver's Licenses for All and Paid Family & Medical Leave just to name a few).
What Senate Republicans are doing is undemocratic and against Oregon values. Full stop.
Let's use their shameful political "strategy" against them. We are asking all Oregonians who support DEMOCRACY and a LIVABLE CLIMATE to pledge to donate $1, $5, $10, $25, $50, or $100 per day until Senate Republicans return to DO THEIR JOB.
The longer the Oregon Senate Republican fail to show up for work, the more money they'll raise for climate, environmental, and social justice organizations.
If enough Oregonians pledge to make a daily donation for each day Senate Republicans are absent, we can use their strategy of chronic absenteeism against them and force them to fund bold climate action and environmental and social justice organizations working to build a more equitable world.
All funds will be split evenly between the following organizations*:
- Renew Oregon (fighting to pass the Clean Energy Jobs bill)
- Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (PCUN) (Oregon's Farmworkers' Union)
- Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI) (dedicated to promoting Tribal self determination and sovereignty)
- Family Forward Action (fighting for Paid Family & Medical Leave in Oregon)
- Our Climate (a youth-led climate group focused on equitable carbon pricing policies)
This is our moment to show Senate Republicans that their actions are UNACCEPTABLE. With enough pledges, we can pressure them to return or they'll have to deal with the fact that their absence is funding the climate justice, social justice, and environmental justice movements.
WE NEED YOU TO TAKE ACTION NOW. TOGETHER, WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE.
