WORST POLLUTER'S TOUR, WOMEN'S EDITION! Link
Chapman Square, SW 4th Ave and Main St Take Trimet
6:00pm
This is free, there will be music, and it will be at a leisurely pace

In 2007, Portland was rated the third most polluted city in the U.S. Join us as we visit some of the worst corporate polluters who make their home in this seemingly green city. This event will involve some education, some direct action, and a fair bit of self powered, empowerment. As an all women ride, it will draw the connection between capitalism and patriarchy as well as the *badass-ness* of riding in a large swarm of biker women!
