Even though the Coast Range Association (CRA) team has been confined to our homes for the past eight months, we’ve been hard at work.

The document is titled Climate and Oregon’s Industrial Forests: A Green New Deal Proposal (GND). No similar forest proposal exists that scales to the climate emergency and concurrently achieves the just transition goals mandated by the GND (House Resolution-109).
