Morgan Rothborne, Ashland.news September 15, 2023
“This campaign is for our futures. We want a future where our communities and the places that we love can thrive. We also deserve to bring clean air into our homes,” said Piper Banks, a student at Ashland High School.
Banks stood with other young women in the shade of a tree while an audience of around 40 people formed a half circle around them listening, clapping and cheering Wednesday afternoon as the Ashland Youth for Electrification Campaign with Rogue Climate Action Team held a rally just inside the entrance to Lithia Park to show their support for a proposed ordinance which aims to prohibit natural gas in new residential construction.
