Care about a healthy Oregon? Join us!

It is impossible to separate your health from the health of your environment.  Whether it’s the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, or the products we use in our daily lives, our exposure to toxics and pollution is shaping our future. These exposures are linked to lifelong chronic health issues, and Oregon’s most vulnerable–children, elderly and communities of color–are most at risk. Add an uncertain climate future to the mix–and action is dire. But together we can create positive change. Lawmakers need to hear from you–students, moms, dads, grandparents and caring voters–that you care about these issues and that you are demanding action today, for the health of Oregonians today, tomorrow and fifty years from now. BE HEARD. STAND TOGETHER. JOIN US on April 22 for Lobby Day for Clean Air and Families!
