A note from the Emerging Leaders Board on “The Time is Now: Renew Oregon”

We’re not just an advisory board of entrepreneurs, strategists and community leaders lending our expertise to support of OEC’s mission. We’re also professionals, parents, aunts and uncles, daughters and sons. We’re Oregonians who were born in this beautiful state and people who moved here because we love this state so much. To safeguard our future, we must act on climate now. That’s why we created this video, narrated by best-selling author of “Wild”, Cheryl Strayed, to call for climate action.

We care about climate change for so many reasons, but particularly because we’re the first generation to experience the effects of climate change, and the last generation that can stop it. We embrace climate change as the pivotal issue of our generation. We’re drawing more young professionals into the movement to grow clean energy, encourage efficiency and reduce climate pollution. We’re urging people to sign the Renlogo-textlineew Oregon pledge. It’s a new kind of climate movement, welcoming partners from business, faith, health, agriculture, communities of color and environmental advocacy.  We share the goal of transitioning our state off of polluting energy to a clean energy economy. Renew Oregon alerts people when there’s opportunities for civic and political action. At times, the task seems daunting, but when you step back and look at Oregon’s history as an environmental leader, we’re inspired, and we know we can do it.

We hope you enjoy the video and feel inspired to sign the Renew Oregon pledge, as well as share the video with your networks.

Sincerely,

The Oregon Environmental Council Emerging Leaders Board
