Comments Writing Workshop: No Fracked Gas Thru Oregon (April 5 Eugene OR)

  • 120 Shelton McMurphey Blvd, Suite 240 Eugene, Oregon (map)

The next State Land Board Meeting in Salem is April 10th and provides an opportunity for Oregonians who oppose fracked gas to share their concerns with Governor Brown directly. At the beginning of each meeting, the State Land Board (Governor Brown, Secretary Dennis Richardson and Treasurer Tobias Reed) hear oral comments from the public on issues related to their responsibilities. While the State Land Board has thus far declined to put the Jordan Cove project on their official agenda, we are making it impossible for them to ignore out concerns by showing up to offer oral comment about why we oppose the project. 

This workshop will cover how to write strategic and convincing public comments. We will explore the elements of effective comment writing, important talking points regarding the Jordan Cove Project, and specific asks for Governor Brown and the State Land Board. After discussion, we will write our comments together and, if time allows, practice delivering them!
