Event description
Oregon is blazing a trail for democracy and rights of nature!

About this Event

In May 2017, residents of Lincoln County adopted the first rights-based law in the U.S. that bans aerial spraying of pesticides. The timber industry was using pesticides against the will of the people, contaminating ecosystems and causing health problems for residents. The Community Bill of Rights was passed in order to establish the right to clean air and water, the right to local community self-government, and the Rights of Nature. Aerial pesticide spraying is prohibited as a violation of those rights.

Join members of the Oregon Community Rights Network from Lincoln and Lane counties to hear how they are successfully working to create a sustainable future in their county.
