Phone bank for volunteers to join the clean energy movement: Oct. 8

Did you know that Oregon sources about one-third of its energy from coal-fueled power plants? It doesn’t have to be this way! You can help.

Next Thursday, we’ll be meeting over pizza here at OEC for a phone bank party. Why? There is an exciting ballot measure petition about to be launched! The initiative will call for Oregon to get away from dirty coal, embrace clean, renewable energy, and cut carbon pollution. Why are we calling people? We need your help growing our base of active volunteers to join us in making sure this initiative gets on the ballot. That’s our call to action: volunteer.

To review: coal=gross, clean energy=beautiful, volunteering=fun, pizza=yum! Can you join the fun here at OEC from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM on Thursday at OEC’s office (222 NW Davis, Suite 309)? Send me a quick email to confirm.

I don’t want to run out of pizza, so be sure to RSVP! Let me know if you are vegan or gluten free; I’ve got your back—because you’ve got Oregon’s!

Phone Recycling: Join us April 7th

by Sophia Aguilera, Program & Campaign Coordinator Do you know what became of your last cell phone? I don’t know what happened to mine. I asked my friends the same question. They all confessed to having a stockpile of old phones in junk drawers or tool sheds.

Climate Change is Real – So Is the Movement for Progress

It’s a pivotal time to work on climate issues. NASA just released a report confirming 2014 as the hottest year on Earth since 1880. The US Senate (with a Republican majority nonetheless) agreed that climate change is real, “not a hoax.” Mainstream media regularly reports on the subject. “Climate change” is no longer considered an

Join the Climate Movement

Oregonians are committed to keeping pollution out of the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the places we call home. Living up to that commitment means pushing back against big oil and coal corporations that make millions at our expense. It’s time for Oregonians to join together and take a stand for our kids, our communities, and our economy. Together we can build the healthy environment and thriving economy t
