Rally And Press Conference Portland Harbor Impacted Communities says
Everyone has a right to know about the Portland Superfund Clean up!

Join the Portland Harbor Community Coalition for a rally and press conference at Portland City Hall this Thursday at noon. Community groups who have been involved in the Superfund planning process want the City of Portland to step up its efforts to engage the public in a meaningful public process around the massive project.

This city was built around the harbor. And it will be rebuilt around the harbor. Polluting industries have profited at the expense of those who have suffered from decades--centuries--of slow violence, in the form of disease, dispossession, and displacement.

Where are the voices of Native Americans, African Americans, immigrant and refugee subsistence fishers, houseless people, low income households, pregnant and nursing mothers in all of this? We are the people who are the most impacted, yet we continue to be left out of the process.

Join us as we deliver a letter to the Portland City Council and Bureau of Environmental Services. We have a right to know and we have a right to be heard!
