Renew Oregon 

Hello and Welcome to Renew Oregon!

We are a growing coalition of businesses and workers, healthcare professionals and parents, farmers and ranchers, faith and community organizations, and individuals coming together to move Oregon away from dirty, polluting energy to a clean energy economy. We are working to create good-paying jobs for all Oregonians, protect air and water from pollution, and help families stay healthy.

We have ambitious plans. We will assemble the most powerful coalition ever in Oregon to fight for the climate. That’s where you come in. Please take a look around our website. See what we’re all about. Then sign our pledge to support policies, investments and actions that will create local, middle-income jobs in a clean, energy-efficient economy and reduce pollution.

The cause has always been important, but the opportunity has never been greater. Oregonians have led the nation on crucial environmental and business innovations before. From the bottle bill and smart land use to the world’s best athletic shoes and the computing revolution, Oregon has shown the way. But now others have caught up. So it’s time to renew our leadership. By acting alongside our Western neighbors, we can have a genuine impact on the climate -- both actual and political.

Oregon is a wonderful place to live-- a place we need to protect. As individuals we get our cars inspected and pay to have our trash disposed of properly. Big oil and coal companies should have to pay their fair share for the pollution they dump into our air and water. There are pollution limits in our laws. We must make sure polluters are held accountable to those limits.

Thanks for being part of the solution. Together, we can Renew Oregon.
