Climate Action + Advocacy


350PDX builds grassroots movement to end the age of fossil fuels and promote clean renewable energy for all. We do this through the lens of environmental justice, partnering with frontline communities and those adversely affected by the changing climate.  

As a volunteer member of the Arts Leadership team for 350.org (Portland chapter), I help lead screenprinting workshops and art-builds alongside some very passionate and talented people.

We make banners, puppets, sculptures, flags, signs, skits, songs, and more. Turns out art is alot more successful at educating and convincing people of a message than just telling them the world is fucked.


Role: design, illustration, screenprinting, fabrication















KGW livestreamed the student Global Climate Strike in Portland, OR. We screenprinted flags and t-shirts for them to wear, front and center.






T-shirt designs for fundraising, campaigning, demonstrations, and volunteer gifts.







YOUTH v. GOV
2019

21 youth (ages 11-23) are collectively suing the U.S. government over their constitutional right to a liveable future in the face of climate change. June 2nd marked a momentious day in Portland, OR with a rally in Director’s Park following a court hearing. 

Myself, along with a team of volunteers, made 11 large-scale presidential puppets for the event. The purpose was to show, through a live performance, how each of these presidents had passed legislation that promoted more fossil fuel infrastructure.

Thousands turned up to watch the live-streamed court hearing, and to welcome all 21 youth defendents to the rally.
