2016 Elections: Moving Forward

Listening, learning and taking action. It’s what we’re witnessing right now across Oregon, and it’s the strategy we’ve embraced since 1968. Oregon Environmental Council holds at its very core a simple idea: if we come together to find common ground, we will succeed in protecting what we love.

Please join us in this spirit of unity. As part of our Grassroots Action and Information Network (G.A.I.N) you’ll strengthen our crucial network with action to support just, equitable environmental solutions in Oregon.

OEC is doing what people across the state are doing: reaching out to friends, colleagues and neighbors on all ends of the political spectrum to assess the results of the election. As we reach out, we see people showing their commitment to strong environmental and social values–a commitment that will be critical as Oregon faces serious and urgent challenges to uphold health, justice and environmental protection. OEC will stay true to our bedrock strategy: power through collaborative solutions. We will empower Oregonians of every race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and ability to act on their environmental values. Together, we will demonstrate that Oregon can continue to lead and provide a beacon of hope for others nationally.

Join our action network and get involved. We pledge to alert you when there are opportunities to take action and be a part of the change we want to see. We’ll ensure that you have the tools you need to contact legislators and invite your friends and neighbors to act. Together, we’ll bring passion and conviction to bear on our state’s critical environmental decisions and ensure that we are creating an inclusive, diverse and unified community together.
