100% Renewable Energy

We all know that burning oil, gas, and coal has polluted our air, water, and land for decades - and now it's changing the climate even faster than scientist feared it would. We know we can have healthier communities right now and a livable future for ourselves and generations to come. But to get there, we must transform the way we produce and consume energy. That's got to start with a commitment to 100% clean, renewable energy. 

Campaign | Hunger

Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness

It’s hard to believe, but Oregon has the highest rate of child food insecurity in the country, with nearly 30% of children with limited or uncertain access to adequate food. What’s more is that the number of families in need is on the rise. Right now 138,000 people in Lane County are eligible for food assistance, up from 124,000 people last year. Food banks are struggling to keep up.

It is time for health insurers to focus on cutting waste and saving money through prevention. But the truth is, too many of them are just raising rates and making consumers foot the bill. 

Campaign | Textbooks

Make Textbooks Affordable

Everyone knows that textbooks prices are outrageous. With student debt skyrocketing, young people can't afford to spend $1200 on books and supplies every year. Together, we can change that.

Campaign | Textbooks

Make Textbooks Affordable

Every student knows that textbook prices are outrageous! Many books cost over $200 a piece and end up worth pennies by the end of the semester, often thanks to unnecessary new editions and pass-codes that expire. It's time for publishers to stop charging ridiculous prices and start taking advantage of today's technology to offer students a better deal. Our campaign is working to increase the use of "open textbooks," which are free online, free to share, and affordable in print -- the ideal publishing model to make textbooks affordable.

No Bees, No Food

We rely on bees to pollinate our food. Yet we’re allowing the use of bee-killing pesticides to drive them toward extinction. How does that make any sense?We're calling on the EPA to ban these toxic pesticides.

Stop Overuse of Antibiotics

 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that at least 23,000 Americans die every year from antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and warns that the widespread overuse of antibiotics on factory farms is putting our health at risk. We're calling on the top restaurant chains to commit to serving meat raised without anitbiotics.
