Rogue Climate was founded in 2013 in the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon.
Our mission is to empower Southern Oregon communities most impacted by climate change, including low-income, rural, youth, and communities of color, to win climate justice by organizing for clean energy, sustainable jobs, and a healthy environment. We do so through leadership development, political education, fostering conversations, and campaigns for policies that benefit our communities over the special interests of the largest corporations.
Our three primary campaigns are to:
- Stop the Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal and the Pacific Connector fracked gas Pipeline proposed in southern Oregon
- Transition communities in the Rogue Valley to clean energy through local clean energy action plans, as well as community solar and energy efficiency campaigns.
- Pass climate policy at the state level that will spur clean energy investment and job creation in rural communities, low income communities, and communities of color in Oregon.
