We thoroughly research before endorsing a policy or a candidate, seeking to elect climate champions who will fight for the change we need.
In May of 2021, Portland Youth Climate Strike endorsed Jaime Cale for as a write in candidate for PPS school board district 4. Because of her experience working in the community, we believe she was the most qualified candidate to represent the students of Portland.
In May of 2020, Portland Youth Climate Strike endorsed Albert Lee for Oregon Congressional District 3. We believed he was an advocate who would make impactful change. Unfortunately, Albert Lee lost the primary. We look forward to seeing what he does in the future.
"I am proud of the campaign that we ran. We were 100% supported by the people. While we may have come up short this evening, we have pushed our rep to the left & the people are rising. The movement continues. We fight on. Thank you all for your support."
