While our primary focus today is to STAY HOME, SAVE LIVES to give our health care workers time and resources to combat this HEALTH CRISIS and that the result of this pandemic has thrown all of us into an ECONOMIC CRISIS, we will emerge from this crucible stronger. However, we need to come together with the same sense of urgency to address Portland’s CLIMATE CRISIS. Lori, Erika, Tera and Keith will discuss the affects this crisis is having on our health and climate and outline solutions we can put into place today to counter.
