Our History

Portland Youth Climate Strike began in February 2020 through the combined efforts of our previous Co-leads, Lana Perice and Catie Macauley. As a chapter of the Oregon Youth Climate Strike, it was formed to create a more focused climate justice effort in Portland specifically. 

Portland Youth Climate Strike aims to promote environmental and social justice by

  • Educating the public about environmental/social issues

  • Amplifying youth in the fight for climate justice

  • Supporting the passing of policies that support climate justice

  • Emphasizing the importance of intersectional climate activism

  • Being an active ally in the fight for racial justice

  • Doing so with an emphasis on BIPOC and LGBTQ+ voices

Mission Statement


Portland Youth Climate Strike is a collective of young people dedicated to the intersectional fight for climate justice. By educating and mobilizing our peers, we strive to make climate action an urgent priority in city and statewide politics.
