Getting involved in Rising Tide!
There are a wide variety of ways to connect with our work and become involved with the movement to address the climate crisis. We have bi-monthly orientation events to make plugging into our work easy and accessible. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out when the next one is.
Rising Tide has workshops as well as film showings at least once a month – coming to these free and open-to-the-public events is one of the best ways to find out what we’re up to, chat with others interested in organizing against dirty energy development in our region, and pick up some knowledge along the way. Check out a complete schedule of upcoming events or join our email list (sign up on the sidebar) to find out more! If you’d like to schedule a training please contact us.
Lend a hand!
Rising Tide regularly puts out calls for help organizing events around town, from tabling at last Thursday to larger teach-ins around town. Joining our email list and keeping an eye out for requests is the best way to hear about these opportunities and get plugged in.

Rising Tide organizes protests and direct actions on an ongoing basis – we need everyone to come out to make actions a success! Please watch our email list closely for protest announcements.
We also have periodic non-violent direct action trainings (and give them for community organization and student groups – contact us for details!) – going to one of these trainings is a great way to get trained for participating in Rising Tide actions and help demystify action organizing.
Sad fact is that Portland Rising Tide does all the great work it does on amongst the tiniest shoestring budget you can imagine – just a few thousand a year, a hundredth of even most small non-profits! We have no paid staff and would love it if you can help our devoted volunteers from spend less time scraping together pocket change to pay for things like banners, rentals of spaces, and a whole lot more. If Rising Tide is to thrive we need you and everyone else reading this to support Rising Tide on an ongoing basis – please take a moment to donate today every little bit helps.
Want to get even more involved?
Portland Rising Tide organizes through a small collective – our two foci are campaigning on energy exports (coal, oil and natural gas) and organizing educational presentations / workshops. If you’d like to get directly involved in planning and want to make an ongoing commitment on a week-to-week basis, we’d love to talk more! Please let us know and we’ll get back to you!
