The Climate Jobs Committee works at the intersections of the labor and climate justice movements. Climate Jobs has been integral to passing the Portland Clean Energy Fund, upholding high-road Labor standards in Climate and COVID-related emergency declarations, as well as expanding the coalition to create stronger heat and smoke standards to protect frontline workers from climate extremes.
Check out our most recent blog post on how JWJ’s Climate Jobs, a coalition of advocates, and workers came together to pass the strongest heat and smoke protections in the nation! Climate Jobs is dedicated to robust climate action and have continued to mobilize with youth climate strikers and participated in rallies and marches to confront climate villains and to demand the City uphold it’s commitment to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
