Mission of the Giving Voice to Diversity project of SOCAN’s Ashland Climate Action Team

Engage Southern Oregonians from vulnerable communities where climate change is contributing  to yet greater Social Injustices than they have experienced over many prior decades. To achieve this, we aspire to:

  • Promote awareness & understanding of climate change
  • Understand the needs of vulnerable communities
  • Explore how to assist in addressing relevant social injustices 
  • Facilitate coordinated action in support of climate adaptation and mitigation
  • Share information and resources on reducing the emissions of greenhouse gasses in Southern Oregon 
  • Incorporate state and federal initiatives, including grant funding opportunities
