At Seeds for the Sol, we are clear that addressing climate change is crucial for Oregon’s future. The Clean Energy Jobs Bill (HB 2023A) can help that happen. In solidarity with a strong coalition across the state, we are supporting that legislation.
HB 2023A addresses three needs that are critical for our future: a strong clean energy economy that caps and permanently reduces greenhouse gas emissions, natural and working lands sequestering CO2, and climate resiliency across the state. If you want to learn more, you can start here.
We need your help now!
