It appears likely that the federal government is going to try to rubber stamp the Jordan Cove LNG project this February, making it more important than ever for Governor Kate Brown to stop the fracked gas pipeline and export terminal once and for all.
Can you come on Thursday, November 21, to the Oregon State Capitol to tell Governor Brown to stop Jordan Cove LNG and protect Oregon’s powers to protect our land, water, existing jobs, and quality of life?
Gov. Brown: The Time is Now #StopJordanCove
WHEN: Thursday, November 21, 11AM-1PM
WHERE: Oregon State Capitol (900 Court Street, Salem)

Stay tuned for information regarding carpools from across Oregon.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will be making its decision about Jordan Cove LNG this February. Meanwhile, the federal administration is trying to rewrite laws to take away our state’s rights to stop fossil fuel projects.
This makes it even more urgent that the State of Oregon act in January and February to deny two critical state permits that are still pending and challenge any permit approvals from the Federal Government.
For over a decade, this project has threatened private landowners, tribal sites and cultural resources, public safety, and existing jobs in fishing, tourism, and more. Governor Brown cannot claim to be a climate champion while remaining silent on a proposed fracked gas export project that would become Oregon’s single largest climate polluter.
Hope to see you there!
