We are Oregon AFSCME Green! Our mission is to engage environmentally conscious members with our communities and AFSCME leadership. If you are an avid hiker, hunter, or angler, or if you are concerned about climate change, water and energy conservation, or attacks on environmental regulators, this group is for you. We strive to forge community partnerships and promote a legislative agenda that creates green jobs and addresses environmental protection.
EVENTS AND COMMUNITY:
In partnership with community leaders we will hold local events throughout Oregon. Look for summer habitat restoration, park beautification, and trail maintenance events in your area. Also, we invite community leaders to speak to our members about pressing local and statewide environmental issues.
LEGISLATION AND POLICY:
We are committed to bringing environmentally protective policy to AFSCME leadership. Oregon AFSCME Green is a mechanism for members to voice to their concern to union leaders. Come to our meetings if you think there is a local or statewide campaign that our union should engage or endorse.
Join us every third Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. for our member meetings. The meetings will be held at the Portland AFSCME Office. We have web and teleconferencing available for our members throughout Oregon. We also encourage the growth of statewide local chapters of our group.
If you have questions, comments, or you would like to be on our email list, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us on Facebook at Oregon AFSCME Green.
Join us today and help write the next chapter
in the blue-green alliance!
