Important Information

March 22, 2023 @ 8am Public Hearing on SB 85 in the Senate
We are asking people to attend this critical hearing. If you signed up to testify at the earlier hearings, you will have a chance on March 22nd. 
If you can't make the meeting but would like to provide written testimony, you can do that by clicking here.
Please plan to attend to demonstrate that this is an important issue to our community and that we want the legislature to take action and pass SB 85, a moratorium on new and expanding mega CAFOs until better laws can be put into place. 
The Capitol is located at 900 Court St., NE Salem, OR 97301 but the building is under construction and you will need to enter the building on the State Street side (the side closest to Willamette University). There is paid parking along State street. You park, pay at the meter with your card and put the sticker on your dash. You will also need to go through metal detectors to enter the Capitol building, so be prepared to do that. 


It's Time To Act!! 

Our legislators need to pass House Bill 2667 and SB 85 for a moratorium on industrial scale animal feeding operations 

Please contact your state legislators (Enter your address and find your legislators here) today and ask them to support HB 2667 and SB 85 to protect our community and state from the negative impacts of mega concentrated animal feeding operations.
