“Heroes are not statues framed against a red sky; they are people who say: 'this is my community and it’s my responsibility to make it better.'” –Tom McCall, Oregon Governor
OLCV’s county chapters are made up of citizens just like you and your neighbors. We want to make sure that Oregon’s children have clean air and water, that Oregon families have stable jobs and affordable energy and transportation options, and that Oregon’s treasures –like the Metolius River basin—are protected from sprawl.
OLCV's county chapters form the heart of the organization -- a forum in which individual volunteers play leadership roles in identifying and electing environmental leaders to city, county, and state office. The chapters also hold their local elected officials accountable with scorecards, which rate city and county commissioners on votes that impact the environment.
The OLCV County Chapter Program started in 1997, and currently includes eight counties. It has grown into a powerful grassroots force. In both the 2010 and the 2012, OLCV has recruited voluteers through our chapters to talk with tens of thousands of voters about which candidates they should trust with Oregon's legacy.
We need proactive leaders that we can depend on to protect the health of our environment and that of Oregonians.
