About Us

We are an alliance of local organizations, groups, and community members who share concerns about the alarming trajectory of our climate and its significance for our present and future world.

 

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says we must act vigorously to reduce atmospheric carbon emissions by 2030 in order to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C.  We have less than 26 years to reach net zero carbon emissions to avoid severe catastrophic consequences to the environment and our well-being.  We stand with scientists, students, activists, and all who seek to ensure a habitable planet with healthy people.

CCAA acknowledges that we make our homes on the traditional lands of the Mary's River or Ampinefu Band of the Kalapuya. Subsequent to the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855, Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are a part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians.

We yearn for a Green New Deal in which Black Lives Matter, and we Stop AAPI Hate and other unjust practices in our society. 

As such, we desire respect and care for the land and its people.  Impactful change, locally and in the broader community will be brought about by educating and engaging our neighbors to work toward individual, societal, and governmental progress in curtailing excessive greenhouse gas emissions.
