Activists in Portland followed the ZGF visit with a visit to Skanska's Portland office, where they continued chalking.

Seattle Takes on Skanska!

From Seattle activists: 

After an impressive weekend of action in Seattle, which centered around the massive #MarchonUW, local animal advocates have quickly resolved to direct pressure back to Skanska USA as well as the University of Washington.
