Climate activists 'take back the tap' at UO

The Climate Justice League works to educate peers on energy-wasting effects of bottled water through visual displays and street petitions. On February 24 the group will present a resolution to the ASUO senate to discourage the use of student fees on bottled water.

Show support by attending the "Take Back the Tap" bottled water educational event Monday, Feb. 22 from 11am - 3pm in the EMU Amphitheater.


THe event is being put on by the UO Climate Justice League in conjunction with the national Take Back the Tap campaign. The League is a new student group formed out of the successful PowerShift West event in November, which had over 500 attendees from various west coast states. Their mission is to empower students to organize their communities and be leaders in the climate justice movement.
