This Time on Webinar Wednesday…
April 6th @6pm
The word Community as defined in the work of Community Rights, refers to all and everything within a given community.
It diminishes no one and nothing by segregating issues into special interests. Whether harm to the community comes in the form of climate chaos, social injustice, healthcare access, or housing insecurity. It includes all who are affected by the imbalance of power between people and corporations, people and the courts, people and the government.
With your help and support we work to elevate the legal standing of people and nature in order to reduce harm and establish sovereignty through cooperative self-determination in service to all within the community.
Living in Oregon, home to 67 native tree species, it is in our DNA to protect this resource that enhances our quality of life in so many ways. It is probably no surprise to learn that Google says there are 714 environmental groups in our state many of them focused on woodlands.
This year, as we approach Earth Day, we want to move deeper into the forest and connect our activist hearts to a more mystical discussion about trees and forests, streams and rivers.
We want to ask the question, “What is it about the forest that makes you do what you do?”
