Diesel Pollution Workshop

  • Unite Oregon 700 North Killingsworth Street Portland, OR, 97217 United States

Join Neighbors for Clean Air & the NE Coalition of Neighborhoods for a diesel workshop and dinner together.

Diesel pollution is a problem in Portland, especially in N/NE Portland. A report released in December, 2015 by US Environmental Protection Agency noted that Portland was ranked as the worst city in the nation for respiratory distress and that Multnomah County air was among the worst 1% of counties nationwide for concentrations of diesel particulate.

QUESTIONS WE'LL ANSWER: How did this happen and what does this mean for your health and the health of your family and community? What are our regulatory agencies doing about the high levels of diesel particulates? And how can your voice be heard? 

HOSTS: Neighbors for Clean Air and the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods

AGENDA: Dinner will be provided at this family-friendly event from 6:00pm to 6:30pm. Our presentation and discussion will begin at 6:30pm.
