No American City Has Ever Tried a Climate Justice Tax Like the One Portland Is Launching
"It's long past time for Portland, a city with a history of institutionalized racism, to move aggressively toward equity, Hardesty and others say."
"It's a local version of the Green New Deal proposed in 2019 by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). It's also part of a larger political effort to reshape who calls the shots—and who benefits."
The new tax, created by a 2018 ballot initiative city voters passed by an overwhelming margin, is part of a power shift that saw two outsiders—Chloe Eudaly in 2016 and Jo Ann Hardesty in 2018—defeat establishment candidates for seats on the Portland City Council."
Acknowledging and remembering the #MaMIW at the Women's March in DC yesterday:
@indie what is MaMI here?
Decolonize your thinking! Ecosteader is a network for sharing better ideas around designing, building, and innovating eco-friendly spaces on our shared soil. We collaborate and amplify the voices of all indigeneous peoples with "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) as we seek to build and participate in a better form of Ecological Democracy. Design lean, build green: compost for wildlife-friendly gardens, micro-homesteads, living walls not border walls, off-grid communities, recycled materials as artwork, and more.
We are anti-Realtors, anti-landlords, and against corrupt RepubliKKKan politicians!
