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 that we all deserve. We have options ahead of us. We can limit pollution and promote clean energy for Oregon jobs and climate. We can protect Oregon for future generations. But we need your voice.

I Pledge to:

  • Support clean energy and better jobs for Oregon families
  • Support clean fuels and expanded transportation choices
  • Demand that Oregon hold polluters accountable for the true cost of their carbon pollution – every family has the right to clean air and water today and for future generations
  • Transition off coal to clean, renewable energy such as a wind and solar, and prioritize energy efficiency.
