We work to promote social justice, agricultural and economic sustainability, and stewardship of the region’s land, air and water.

We envision the responsible and sustainable use of our natural resources and agricultural lands, a region of social livability and equality, thriving and diverse local economies, and opportunity for present and future generations.


Member Update - Rural Oregon Rising


With a vision for building long-term sustainability and effectiveness by “making Democracy come alive,” the Board of Directors adopted a Five Year Strategic Plan, Rural Oregon Rising, on January 2018. Over the past 7 months, we’ve taken important steps to strengthen our organizational infrastructure and position ORA to meet today’s public challenges.

Thank you for being a part of Oregon Rural Action!
