Review for Oregon Rural Action Inc, La Grande, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Oregon Rural Action is a vital member of Eastern Oregon, the State of Oregon and as a member of Western Organization of Resource Councils to the whole of the west. The members and staff work for a more sustainable situation in rural Oregon. The experiences that touch my heart and soul the most are the campaigns for Justice for All and local food awareness. This organization has shown incredible courage and strength to go where others have feared to tread. Also very inspired by the younger generations that are giving their lives and expertise to the causes of Oregon Rural Action. Proud to be associated with this organization and definitely ranks as a GREAT NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION.

Review for Oregon Rural Action Inc, La Grande, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A truly indispensable organization for life east of the
Cascades. Working tirelessly for sustainability in regards to food systems, renewable energy, social justices and accountability of elected officials. Also working with local, state and federal legislation that will make a difference far into the future. I am most grateful for the model of organizers supporting members to become active instead of the usual top down models. This is a big shift for most people to understand and Oregon Rural Action is staying with the mission and vision. As a member, I am grateful.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping federal legislation pass to protect the direct sale farmers from rigorous fees and paperwork in the Food Safety Bill. Community Gardens expand. Internal funds and fundraising activity increase. Seen the increase in collaborations with other organizations throughout Oregon working on sustainable food issues.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

see the membership grow.

Role:  Volunteer & I've been on the board, I have worked as an organizer for a year and now as an active member I work with the community garden committee.
