Thanks to the hundreds who have signed our petition to Gov. Brown we're more than a third of the way to our goal of 800 signatures! If you haven't signed it yet, please take a moment TODAY! Let's let Gov. Brown know:join with the people to ensure that Oregon will not back down on climate change justice!

From SAfER:

September 8th is the first meeting of the Springfield City Council after their summer recess. They'll be figuring out their next steps following the resignation of Mayor Christine Lundberg, in the wake of police violence in Thurston and protestor arrests.
We want to make sure they keep equity as a core value as they make their decisions, that they listen to the community, and hold themselves accountable to the whole community. So we are organizing a rally with the themes of Equity, Inclusion and Accountability for 5:30 pm on Tuesday the 8th.  The Council will be meeting remotely, but they will know we are there, outside City Hall!

REGISTRATION is now open!

2020 is a year on fire. From the federal administration whose cruelty towards the LGBTQ community knows no bounds, to continuous violence particularly against Black trans women, we've seen this fight before. And that's why the fire has been lit for so many of us, as new people and communities are activated and engaged in the streets. We're seeing people reckon with the racist and transphobic systems of oppression through out our state, our country, and the world, and we know that, together, we can take on any fight.

As part of our Statewide initiative, this week-long, virtual event will be your opportunity to meet with LGBTQ and ally Oregonians from around the state, attend community-led workshops, and get the skills you need to advance your leadership in your community.

Online conversations on race/racism for White
folks - particularly those who are new to thinking
and talking about these issues.
These free conversations are based in respect and non-judgment, with the goal of learning together even though we may have different views and experiences. It can feel very uncomfortable for many White people to talk about race, but I try to make this as welcoming and productive as possible.

Our online conversations are done via Zoom, although you can participate by phone if you aren't able to use Zoom. Each conversation ranges from 1 to 1.5 hours, and there is a mix of whole group conversation and more intimate small group discussion using Zoom breakout rooms. The facilitator guides the conversation along with prompts, questions, support, etc.

More information and schedule of upcoming conversations at:


This is a document in Google Docs that you can download in various formats. It is a comprehensive resource list directed towards white people who are serious about affecting anti-racism. It's a beginners guide to start a journey of learning.

Download the document:

The document introduction starts with:

"Diving into the world of anti-racism for the first time can be confronting. It may feel challenging to understand your place and where to begin with educating yourself. Luckily, there are endless resources online to help you learn about anti-racism work, dismantle the unconscious biases that exist within yourself, and take action to create a more just society. This document is a compilation of resources and educators that have and continue to help me."

The document is currently being maintained by Dr. Tiffany Bowden.

  Ongoing Services
and Prevention Efforts

The HIV Alliance provides an extensive web page with their services and efforts  
in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

In response to COVID-19, the following is a list
of actions the NAACP hopes local leaders are already
working on, or begin to work on immediately.
For City of Eugene and Springfield: 
  • Place moratoriums on home evictions.
  • Present emergency preparedness plan that clearly outlines how historically under served communities' needs will be addressed. Make plan available in Spanish.
  • Designate resiliency hubs where vulnerable communities can collect BASIC household items that the city can provide in the midst of empty grocery stores and sold out items.
  • Urge the state to implement an immediate moratorium on evictions, foreclosures and rent collections.
For EWEB, SUB and Northwest Natural Gas: 
  • Postpone collection of all utility bills for at least two months.
  • Cancel all scheduled shutoffs and shutoffs already in place.
For Medical Centers: 
  • Ensure that the legal status of individuals being tested for COVID-19 are not requested or disclosed.
  • Create PSA'S in Spanish that make it clear that legal status will not be requested during the testing of COVID-19.
  • Create PSA's that make the relation of Public Charge, OHP and other programs clear in relation to COVID-19 testing.

For School Districts:

Designate community partners, NGO's, and places of worship where families can pick up lunches for children during the times that they will not be in school.

For LTD:

Cancel collection of fares for the foreseeable future as economic pressures are intensifying on communities who are most dependent on public transit.

For Law Enforcement:
  • In order to prioritize resources for emergency responses, law enforcement should consider immediate release of people charged with non-violent offenses awaiting trial.
  • Devise a clear emergency procedure for potential outbreaks.

Hate and Bias Hotline Opens

Whether it happened to you or to someone else, we can all help track hate and
bias incidents. The Non-Emergency Hotline is 1-844-924-BIAS(2427). 
Reports may be made online as well:

A hate and bias incident is any hostile expression that may be motivated by another person's race, color, disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Hate and bias acts can be verbal, physical, or visual. This language and behavior often contributes to, or creates, an unsafe or unwelcoming environment. The act does not have to be a statutory crime.

Examples of an act of hate or bias include:
  • Name calling; using a racial, ethnic or other slur to identify someone; or using degrading language.
  • Creating racist or derogatory graffiti or images/drawings.
  • Imitating someone with a disability, or imitating someone's cultural norm or practice.

Oregon's Native Bees
Are In Steep Decline!

Native bees, such as bumblebees and solitary bees that provide essential pollination for agricultural crops and native plants, are in trouble. Many species are at risk of extinction. As pollinator populations decline, the lower production of healthy fruits and vegetables is placing the entire natural system in peril.

What can you do?

1. Do not apply neonics to your yard.
2. Grow bee-friendly flowers
3. Take a pledge to protect pollinators
4. Urge local food growers, nurseries and garden centers to support OPPA (Oregon Pollinator
    Protection Alliance)

Fracked Gas Resistance Campaign

U.S. Senators Wyden & Merkley plan to introduce legislation to defend property owners' rights from eminent domain claims for natural gas pipelines!

Thanks to years of our communities coming together to stop Jordan Cove LNG, Senators Wyden and Merkley have joined Southern Oregon in opposing this project that would strip land from private property owners, impact the traditional territories and cultural resources of Tribal Nations, harm the local commercial fishing industry, and become the largest climate polluter in the state.

Read the PRESS RELEASE and send the Senators a THANK YOU MESSAGE.

Drawdown Campaign

We know natural gas is a fossil fuel. Progressive cities are pushing for regulations to limit or ban fossil gas and provide incentives to electrify everything. We can't avoid the worst effect of climate chaos if we don't stop burning fossil fuels, including natural gas. But like the tobacco and timber industries, new trade associations are forming and pouring money into PR wars filled with misinformation.

For the last 18 months, the City of Eugene has been considering its franchise agreement with Northwest Natural. Many community members and groups advocate taking this opportunity to stop expansion of gas infrastructure and promote the phase out over time of natural gas, especially in buildings. City Council will be taking up franchise agreement negotiations in the fall. We can't reach our Climate Recovery Ordinance goals and do our part to solve the climate crisis if we don't limit natural gas.

 12th Annual
Object Afterlife Art Challenge 

Presented by MECCA (Materials Exchange Center for the Community Arts)
and OSLP (Oregon Supported Living Program)

Exhibition runs August 7 - September 11 with gallery hours every
Thursday and Friday from 2-6 PM.
Lincoln Gallery, 309 W. 4th Ave. Suite 100, Eugene

A digital showcase can be found on:

"MECCA inspires our community to re-imagine unwanted materials while breaking down the financial barriers to the arts and creativity. We hope this show will inspire others to re-imagine unwanted materials and to use what's on hand rather than acquiring new materials," said Executive Director Heather Campbell.

Mija Andrade, Director of the OSLP Arts & Culture Program adds, "I also wanted to start a conversation that examines the life cycle of the objects our society produces and consider their afterlife. Our first year we had 27 artists participate. This year over 100 artists signed up. I've been thrilled to see interest and recognition of this event grow each year!"

MECCA offers free creative materials to educators, homeschool teachers, nonprofits and social justice organizations through our Teacher Resource Center in addition to affordable community workshops, an open studio, and upcycling events for all ages and abilities. 
The OSLP Arts & Culture Program breaks down barriers to participation in the arts for people of all abilities. We model inclusion through the arts and offer creative and cultural classes, workshops, and exhibitions in our gallery and in the community as well as facilitating mentorships.

Fiesta Cultural was created to integrate communities through the arts.

Despite challenges presented by COVID-19, Lane Arts Council, City of Eugene Cultural Services Division, and Fiesta Cultural co-leaders have pivoted to provide events and programming online, in person, and sometimes both.  Many events now include live-stream components on Facebook and Zoom, and in-person experiences will require attendees to practice social distancing and wear a face mask.

New events will be added continuously throughout the fall. Some highlights include:

>>  Information  Access

A free CPR smartphone app called PulsePoint is now available for the Eugene Springfield Fire service area.

The PulsePoint app alerts subscribers who have indicated they are CPR-trained to a sudden cardiac arrest event. The alert is triggered by the 9-1-1 dispatch center at the same time that our firefighter paramedics are dispatched. The app uses advanced GPS technology to notify subscribers within a quarter mile of a cardiac arrest event. "CPR trained" can be defined as knowing how to administer Hands-Only CPR (no rescue breaths).

The app also directs subscribers to the location of the closest public access automated external defibrillator (AED). The app is only activated for cardiac arrest events in public places (not a private home).

Resources for Residents

The City of Eugene offers a suite of housing resources available to community members. Some of these programs are available whether or not you live in an affordable housing unit.


Community Safety In Eugene

Over the past 5 years, Eugene's population has grown and so have our public safety needs. While many creative programs have been applied to this problem to maximize resources and meet community needs, the growing demand continues to outpace capacity causing critical gaps in community safety and services.

"Our community safety system is stressed," said City Manager Jon Ruiz. "Adding a separate, dedicated revenue source will enable us to respond to more calls in less time, and have the capacity to deter crime, hold chronic offenders accountable and help those who are willing to find a better path."  

Learn more about Community Safety in Eugene.


Hate and Bias Report 

The annual Hate and Bias Report is now available for 2018. This report is compiled by the Office of Human Rights and Neighborhood Involvement, which is responsible for collecting statistical information on both criminal and non-criminal hate and bias activity and providing victim support and community response to hate and bias activity in Eugene.

and Response Toolkit and Training

The City of Eugene is committed to working to make Eugene a welcoming and safe community for everyone. To achieve this, we must create an environment in which hatred and bigotry are not acceptable as they directly undermine the Eugene we all want to live in. Everyone has a stake in creating a community where every person feels welcome, valued and respected. Hate and bias have major impacts on victims, families, and communities at large.

The Human Rights and Neighborhood Involvement (HRNI) office has created a tool to help address hate/bias by learning to recognize the impact on our community and how to respond to incidents.

If you believe you are witness to or subject to a hate/bias incident, please call or report it to HRNI at 541-682-5177; if you believe you are a witness to, or a victim of, a hate crime please call 911 or 541-682-5111 if non-emergency.

The Eugene Toxics Right-to-Know Program was created and is governed by Section 54 of the Eugene City Charter. It requires that businesses meeting certain criteria report their hazardous substance use to the City, that the City make that information public, and that hazardous substance users pay fees as necessary to operate the program.

For more information on the Eugene Toxics Right-to-Know Program, contact Program Manager Jo Eppli at 541-682-7118.
