Your Oregon legislator needs to hear from you about the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI). You have an opportunity to demand that your representatives prevent OFRI from feeding misinformation to your kids about our forests, water and climate. You can prevent them from continuing to use tax dollars to illegally lobby on behalf of the timber industry and spread misinformation about Oregon forestry practices. Use this form to take action and send a letter to your representatives.
As you may have read in The Oregonian-OPB-ProPublica report, OFRI has been suppressing science on forest-carbon and drinking water, misrepresenting logging practices, and engaging in illegal lobbying efforts for years.
OFRI, which is tax-funded, spends $1 million annually on advertisements that present the public with biased and faulty information about Oregon forestry practices. We must eliminate OFRI, so their funds can be reallocated to benefit, and not mislead, Oregonians.
