Lead, Follow or Get the Hell Out of the Way!

At April’s Community Rights Action gathering, we honored stellar volunteer, Barbara Bochnovich, with the newly created Lynn Bowers Volunteer of the Year Award “Lead, Follow or Get the Hell Out of the Way” award. The award honors the memory of Lynn Bowers who was one of the chief petitioners of the Freedom from Aerial Herbicides spray ban initiative; a tireless activist and an exemplary human being. Barbara’s dedication to the efforts of Community Rights Lane County makes her fully deserving of this award. Thanks again, Barbara … and all CRLC volunteers!

Community Rights Action in AprilAction Plans & Rights of Nature

It’s no surprise that we plan on pushing the Lane County Commissioners to refer our initiatives to a vote of the people. So this month we’ll be talking about, and planning, our future interactions with those commissioners. Let’s all gathering together and let them know we aren’t going away anytime soon.

Also in the works is a Rights of Nature initiative. We’ve done some initial research, but we also want input from our volunteers and supporters. We hope to help start collecting signatures this summer, so time is of the essence!

WHEN: Monday, April 15th, @6pm

WHERE: First United Methodist Church
