Webinar: Winning By A Landslide: How we won the Portland Clean Energy Fund (PCEF)
Climate Advocacy Lab with Portland Clean Energy Fund

Our speakers from the PCEF leadership body included:

  • Khanh Pham, OPAL Environmental Justice
  • Jenny Lee, APANO (Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon)
  • Adriana Voss-Andreae, 350PDX
  • Brent Foster, Political Strategist & Lawyer

In addition to hearing from the direct experience of these initiative experts, we also were able to answer several questions from attendees, to dive deeply into questions about:

  • How and why certain political or policy structure decisions were made;
  • First-person perspectives on what it really takes to establish a coalition as diverse as the one that drove this initiative forward;
  • The challenge (and advantages!) of working in the absence of significant funding for a majority of the campaign;
  • Ideas for alternatives to financing a similar initiative for municipalities that can't levy the same tax...
  • And much, much more!

To access a detailed case study of the initiative, written by Adriana Voss-Andreae and interviewing more than two dozen of the leaders involved, please see A Template for Change: The Portland Clean Energy Fund as a Local Model for a Green New Deal.
