Thank you to our 2015 Beyond Toxics members, donors, advisors, board of directors, business supporters and volunteers.

There are too many people to thank to be able to list them all, but here's a start!

Thank you to the courageous people of Cedar Valley who gave their time and heartfelt and poignant testimony during the legislative session in Salem for the chance for a better future for Oregon. And thank you to the  thoughtful legislators who listened and gave your steadfast support for our efforts.

Thank you to the leaders of the four organizations who helped us put on a watershed environmental justice conference in Medford this Fall, " Justice for the Land and the Worker": NW Forest Worker Center, Oregon Action, PCUN, and Unete. And thanks to the courageous workers who stepped forward to speak about the injustice they face in Oregon's forests, fields and workplaces.

Thank you to Portland's Mayor and the city's Board of Commissioners who voted unanimously to ban neonicotinoids on all city-owned property

Thank you to Darryl Ivy, who, at great risk to his safety, came forward to blow the whistle on reckless and dangerous aerial spraying which endangered himself and others in the seldom-watched private forests of Oregon!

Thank you for the creative and generous support of green businesses such as Coconut Bliss and Mountain Rose Herbs! Their support through events and causes such as the "Night of Bliss" and "Pollinator Tea" generated more than $13,000 to support Beyond Toxics' determined work to protect Oregon's environment.

Thank you to the many business sponsors and hard working board members and volunteers who helped us put on two BIG celebration events this year: The Bee Jubilee in Portland this past Spring and our 2nd Annual Bee Jazzy Festival in August at Silvan Ridge Winery near Eugene.

Thank you to the FOUR new board members who just joined our fight for a clean and just Oregon (listed below)...

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers, especially our Fall interns, Inara Fernandez and Natalie Hardwicke, both University of Oregon students who quickly became valued contributors to our work!  

Special thanks to long-time board member Carla Hervert who has, for years, generously (and without hesitation) donated her amazing photography to us. (See the beautiful banner photos in the past 2 emails!)

And thanks, of course, to you, our kind and generous supporters who have been with us fighting for environmental health and a brighter future. You have shown us--time and again-- how much you value our work and our approach of effective grassroots organizing.
