Defending Human Dignity

Rural Organizing Project was founded in 1992 in response to Ballot Measure 9, which scapegoated and dehumanized LGBTQ+ Oregonians, leading to the formation of rural groups across Oregon hungry to overcome polarization and divides to build stronger communities that uphold the dignity of everyone who calls their communities home. Today, groups across rural Oregon defend human dignity when they are responding to storms that leave under-resourced communities without electricity and only those who can afford a generator are able to stay warm, defending ourselves and our communities against detention and deportation from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and countering the recruitment of our neighbors into white power and paramilitary movements.
