MCAT is a community of experienced volunteers, sponsored by OLCV, who help steward significant greenhouse gas reduction policy into law in Oregon. MCAT participates with the broad and inclusive climate and equity coalitions in Oregon and partners with OCN and others on coordinated action, particularly in regard to state legislation and policy. MCAT also actively organizes to elect and support legislators who will work for strong climate legislation.
MCAT promotes scientific solutions to rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while also supporting equity and social justice concerns. We most often work in the gap between legislators, state agencies and policymakers, writing letters and testifying to promote legislation that will help Oregon meet its climate goals. We offer forums and presentations to the public, create and attend climate events, and we join campaigns that support legislators and candidates who are climate champions. As individuals, many MCATs participate with other climate organizations in tandem. We’re serious about climate, but we’re also serious about camaraderie, and we make quality time for community building. Join us!
