Beyond Toxics, NAACP Eugene/Springfield and NAACP PDX are excited to introduce two transformational pieces of Environmental and Climate Justice legislation in Oregon.
As our state takes on the monumental challenge of addressing the climate crisis, we need to ensure that we do not repeat the mistakes of the past, and that BIPOC and other historically underserved communities are centered and meaningfully consulted every step of the way. Our organizations are proud to be championing two pieces of legislation in 2021 aimed at achieving environmental and climate justice.
Environmental Justice for Oregon: A Joint Resolution (LC1894) Introduced by Senators Dembrow, Golden, Frederick and Manning and Representatives Power and Helm.
