#areYOUintheblastzone : 350.org Week of Action
April 1 - April 9
Join 350Deschutes April 1 – 9, 2021 in a national week of action with the #BuildBackFossilFree coalition to escalate the demand for President Joe Biden to be a real Climate President by stopping all new fossil fuel projects.
What: #areYOUintheblastzone as part of national Build Back Fossil Free week of action. Post images of yourself at your favorite local parks, breweries, businesses, or even at your home to show how much of Bend is within the blast zone. Tag @350deschutes and use the hashtag #areyouintheblastzone
Why: Here in central Oregon, particularly in Bend, we are literally living, working, learning, and playing in a potential devastating train derailment, spill, fire or even explosion. We need to raise awareness that trains carrying fossil gases are putting us all at risk and urge our city council to pass a resolution opposing their unsafe transport through our community.
