More than a decade of work will not be silenced.

OEC’s Jana Gastellum with climate champions Hazel and Ellory!

2019 has been a tumultuous year for Oregonians and our environment. As we look to the future, we remain more committed than ever to the idea that people coming together with passion and perseverance can positively alter the course of the future.

There is much work yet to do: In the last legislative session, the Oregon legislature failed to vote on the Clean Energy Jobs bill. It was a disappointing outcome after an inspiring show of support for the bill over many years.

More than a decade of work will not be silenced. The crucial work of Oregon Environmental Council has always been—and will always be—fueled by the broad support of our members and donors. It’s thanks to you that I know with confidence that the fight does not end here.

Join us in building a future for our state where:

  • the water is clean and abundant for our many needs;
  • the air we breathe enlivens our health, and does not threaten our ability to work and play and;
  • transportation choices are accessible, affordable and pollution-free.

We invite you to deepen your investment in a better Oregon for all. Every gift counts.

For more information, please reach out to Teke Dillender, Deputy Director Director of Philanthropy, at or 503.222.1963 ext. 119. She’d love to hear from you!

Something as simple as switching out your method of heating may make all the difference in your neighborhood’s air quality, as well as combat climate change. This new year, you can resolve to clean the air by phasing out you
