Non-ORD2 Indivisible Sponsored Event: Rally and Public Hearing to Stop Jordan Cove LNG – Jackson County Expo and Fairgrounds, Central Point

January 8 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a rally and public hearing to stop the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline in Jackson County.

If built, the Jordan Cove LNG project would harm nearly 500 waterways (including the city of Medford’s public drinking water source), seize property from private landowners through eminent domain, create a major safety and public health hazards, impact Tribal territories, cultural resources, and burial grounds, and become the largest source of climate pollution in the state.

The Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) will hear from the public about whether Jordan Cove’s Removal-Fill permit should be denied or approved. This is one of the state permits that, if denied, would stop the Jordan Cove LNG even if the Federal Government approves the project.

Take action at a rally at 4:30 p.m. at the expo before the hearing starts to show our opposition! More info on writing a public comment and a rally before posted in the event page. PLEASE WEAR RED.

You can take action now by submitting written comments at https://nolngexports.good.do/DSL/DSLComments/
