Tell Eugene City Council to Stand Up to NW Natural

The City of Eugene’s franchise agreement with NW Natural has officially lapsed! This a good first step, but we need the city now to put a moratorium on new gas infrastructure. Here are some ways you can help make that happen:

Action:
  1. Submit Letters to the Editor to the Eugene Weekly or Register Guard! Check out our Letters to the Editor page for some inspiration. Our talking points are useful for this as well!
  2. Send an email to your City Councilor! We’ve already come up with a basic letter, but adding your own thoughts makes it much more impactful.

Stop Post-fire Logging in the North Umpqua Watershed!

Your voice is needed to let the Bureau of Land Management agency know our community opposes post-fire clearcutting in the North Umpqua Watershed! The agency has released an environmental review that shows it is planning to clearcut over 6,200 acres that burned in the Archie Creek Fire.

Burned forests provide healthy habitat for a myriad of wild plant and animal species, some found in no other kind of forest. So-called “salvage” logging after a fire destroys this precious habitat. Burned forests are also great at locking away carbon, but not if they’re logged!

Action: 

Please let the Bureau of Land Management know how you feel about its post-fire logging plan on your public lands! Send a message here

Deadline: ASAP

Tell Biden: Stop Line 3 Pipeline

There is a massive pipeline underway in northern Minnesota that violates Indigenous rights and would carry the pollution equivalent to 50 coal power plants.

President Biden has the power to stop this project. He can review the permits granted by Trump and halt Line 3 construction immediately.

Action:

Please sign this petition calling on Joe Biden to #StopLine3 immediately and invoke a climate test for all pipelines.

Deadline: Ongoing
