We’re the petition committee sponsoring the “Freedom from Aerial Herbicide Spraying Bill of Rights”!
For decades, Lane County residents have been subjected to the practice of aerial herbicide application that threatens their health, their property, and the environment. Despite persistent efforts to stop this practice, the harm continues unabated, as legislators listen to corporate money, rather than the community they "represent". Two organizations, Freedom from Aerial Herbicides Alliance, and Our Community, Our Rights have drafted charter amendments to ban the aerial spraying of herbicides in Lane County, and give those communities the authority to enforce that ban.
This campaign is about our future. Do we want a future where we are powerless to protect our families and our environment from toxic chemical spraying, or are we willing to do the hard work necessary to protect our health, safety, and well-being? Now is the time to do just that, and we need your help!
