I've served as a volunteer advisor for OEC for the past two years. In that capacity, it's been clear that the organization is keenly focused on finding solutions to Oregon's climate and public health challenges in creative ways. The staff is highly skilled and balances issue advocacy with measured tactics to include the voice of all Oregonians in work around clean water, clean air, access to healthy food, climate change and other topics vital to the livability of the state. I plan to continue to financially support OEC's important work long into the future as an investment in Oregon.

OEC has an extraordinary model for moving the environmental agenda forward in Oregon. I'm so impressed with their structure and their depth of expertise by their program directors. They understand the crossroads between policy and politics and always shoot for that next horizon. I loved working for them when I was their legislative director for four years and enjoy the continued relationship as their contract lobbyist.
