Linnton Letter

Join Linnton Neighbors in Demanding That Zenith Be Stopped

The letter below was written by the Linnton Neighborhood Association. It demands that the Zenith Energy facility in NW Portland be denied all support and permits.

If you are a member of a community organization, we urge you to ask your group sign on to the letter to let Portland City Council and Governor Kate Brown know that your group demands that shipping dirty petroleum from the Bakken Shale and Alberta Tar Sands through our neighborhoods be stopped.

To sign on to the letter, please complete form on this page.

Don’t forget to call City Council and Governor Brown to urge them to prevent Zenith Energy from shipping toxic petroleum through our backyard. Ask members of your organization to make those calls also.
