The Oregon Green New Deal is a blueprint for how we can transition Oregon’s economy away from extraction toward regeneration. And in 2020 we are taking the OGND 1.0 proposal on the road, to cities and counties across the state!
Frontlines to the Front
Oregon’s economy must change. Environmental disasters, white supremacist violence, and widespread poverty are not sustainable. We invite you to attend the upcoming Solidarity Listening Tour, coming to a city or county near you! We can chart a path to an Oregon where everyone experiences buen vivir, or living well!
Each stop on the Solidarity Listening Tour will be a two-part experience – one for local community members to help flesh out our plan for a Just Transition, and one for community partners to engage in political education about how we’ll get there. An Oregon Green New Deal Town Hall will be a public event in each area, where the frontline communities of Oregon (Black, Indigenous, People of Color and low-income rural communities) will gather to build our collective power. Each Town Hall will be individually designed by trusted community organizations from the host site. Details for the tours will be distributed in local communities as the tour dates are finalized. Stay tuned to the OJTA website to hear more about the events!
Together, Oregonians who have historically been denied opportunities to effect change will create the vision of Oregon’s future that brings benefits to our community, and communities across the state. If we don’t control the change, it will leave us behind!
