Last night, in a 7-1 vote in favor, Eugene, Oregon became the 2nd city in the world to endorse the International Declaration on Human Rights and Climate Change (and the first city over 100,000!).
The Declaration foregrounds human rights while simultaneously protecting the rights of living systems from climate harms. In moving forward with support from many other groups, we are combining new thinking and existing international human rights law.
Special thanks goes to Community Alliance of Lane County (CALC) and Sierra Club-Many Rivers Group for attending the City Council hearing and speaking in favor of the Declaration on Feb. 12th! Also, we recognize and appreciate the tremendous support offered by the NAACP Eugene Springfield Oregon and 350-Eugene in this effort!
