Treasurer Tobias Read had a powerful opinion piece in the Portland Tribune. In his piece, he said,
“What we need now is bold leadership and honest conversations from state leaders, and decisions that prioritize long-term investments to save lives and protect property. Climate change deniers used to paint the consequences as no more likely than a sci-fi movie set in the distant future. Now, Oregonians can see with their own eyes that climate change is here to stay, and that we must mobilize to stop it from doing further damage to the state that we love.”Tobias Read, Portland Tribune, August 11, 2021
The Divest Oregon campaign is in complete agreement – we need bold leadership and honest conversations from state leaders and decisions that prioritize long-term investments.
