The Portland People’s Climate Movement March

Vivian Satterfield photoIn this episode, we will be talking with Vivian Satterfield with OPAL about the Portland People’s Climate Movement March.

Vivian is second-generation bilingual Chinese American, born and raised in inner city Chicago. She believes in the power of organizing, the efficacy of people-centered public policy, and the therapeutic benefits of a long bike ride. Vivian is currently the Deputy Director at OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon, where she’s helped bring grassroots-led campaigns and coalition efforts around issues such as lifting Oregon’s 17-year long ban on inclusionary zoning, and the extensions of transfer times on TriMet, to success.
