Justice Ginsburg fought hard her entire life to protect democracy, voting rights, and the environment. Now we must continue that fight to honor her legacy and protect the progress we've accomplished together.
But President Trump and his allies in Congress are determined to rush a nominee through the confirmation process to fill Justice Ginsburg's seat in the U.S. Supreme Court before the next election.
Tell your senators to honor Justice Ginsburg by following her final wishes: Do not replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg until after Inauguration Day!
ODA announced a proposed rule to limit the use of chlorpyrifos, a highly toxic pesticide that has been found to cause brain damage in children. Chlorpyrifos also endangers pollinators that are essential for food production, and contaminates our air and waterways.
These new rules are a step in the right direction towards protecting Oregon from the dangers of chlorpyrifos. But they also create loopholes which allow agriculture companies to continue to use this brain-damaging pesticide through granular forms and treated seeds.
Tell Oregon lawmakers to close these loopholes so we can get rid of this brain-damaging pesticide for good!
The Farm System Reform Act would put a moratorium on new industrial factory farms that polite our environment and phrase out all factory farms by 2040.

Representatives John Conyers (D, MI) and Earl Blumenauer (D, OR) have introduced the Saving America's Pollinators Act (H.R. 3040), which would require the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take immediate action to protect bees and other pollinators by suspending the use of neonicotinoid insecticides. Tell your Representative to support the Saving America’s Pollinators Act!
Rates of COVID-19 in counties with meatpacking plants are some of the highest in the country. Mandatory safety standards can do a lot to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in meatpacking facilities where workers are currently crammed side-by-side on processing lines.
Protecting workers in meatpacking plants is important not just for the workers, but also for food safety.
The last thing we need during this pandemic is another major foodborne illness outbreak.
Tillamook claims to be the answer to Big Food and "Dairy Done Right," but in reality, the majority of the milk that goes into Tillamook dairy products comes from the nation's largest industrial confinement mega-dairy in Eastern Oregon—quintessential "Big Food." Tell Tillamook that you want it to drop Big Dairy for good.
FDA just lifted the import ban on GMO salmon.
But because Center for Food Safety members wrote to grocery stores across the country, more than 80 food companies have made commitments never to sell this GMO salmon. Now that GMO salmon is available to be sold in the U.S., their commitments not to sell this dangerous product will be put to the test.
Tell the stores that pledged never to sell GMO salmon how important that commitment is to you.
