Phone Banking for Lincoln County

Yes on 21-177 campaign needs Your help! This is your chance to make a difference in the campaign for Lincoln County's right to choose what is acceptable behavior for logging practices in Lincoln County. It is a first step that will seed other successful actions across the state and further afield.  It is also a wake up call to our local and state governing bodies that we will no longer be ignored or placated through non-action - legislation to protect water and fish habitat being killed in committee -while extraction of our resources continues without balance. Phone calls to Lincoln Co. voters can be done by any willing volunteers over this last week by emailing Debra<[email protected] or Rebecca <[email protected]> and they will send you a pdf file by email that you may print out and use to call voters urging them to vote and stand up with county residents for our health, protection of our natural resources, and the vital role healthy forests play in a habitable earth by voting YES! to ban aerial (aircraft) spraying of pesticides in Lincoln County!  It's easy to do, we'll be available to answer questions.

Democracy School in Eugene

Community Rights Lane County along with the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund are bringing Democracy School to Eugene! Lane County residents are threatened with a handful of corporate harms (aerial spraying), and are organizing to stop the toxic poisoning of their community. As part of our work, we are holding CELDF’s Democracy School – a stimulating and illuminating course that teaches residents and activists how to reframe exhausting and often discouraging single issue work (such as opposing fossil fuel extraction/transportation, aerial spraying, GMOs, etc.) in a way that we can confront corporate control and state preemption on a powerful single front: people’s inalienable rights. WHERE: First United Methodist Church / 1376 Olive St. Eugene WHEN: Friday, June 2nd, 6:00 - 9:00p.m / Saturday, June 3rd, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m You Must REGISTER AND PAY for this 2 day event.

Action YOU Can Take!

Do you want to help (and really don't want to collect signatures), but aren't sure what to do? As an organization working towards a better place to live, we feel everyone must work towards that goal in their own way. So while some organizations are...
  • writing more protective laws in the places they live,
  • others are driving to Salem to talk with elected officials,
  • while others are out there standing in front of trucks!
We all do what we can, and we want to help YOU do your part by sharing this Action. Ultimately we'd like to ban aerial spraying in all of Oregon. Working towards that goal, we'll write letters of support for the legislative bills being introduced this session. And while we don't hold our breathe that the legislature will save the day (give the people what they really want), we do want to support the efforts of those that work towards reforming the Forest Practices Act in any way. Below is information on bills that were introduced. We've also provided a sample letter for you to send your elected official in Salem. If you don't know who that is, find your Oregon legislator. The Timber Aerial Spray Right to Know ...Read More
