Grassroots IMPACT

Our mission is to engage, educate, and activate communities and individuals to promote Social, Environmental, Economic and Racial Justice through electoral, legislative, and direct actions.
Our vision is for a just, peaceful society in which communities reach their full potential, enhanced by ongoing civic and political engagement, having access to necessary resources in order to uphold the dignity of each individual and all living beings within a healthful environment.

ACE- ACTIVIST CONNECTION EVENTS

Each month Grassroots IMPACT hosts an event in a different part of Oregon with the purpose of bringing together grassroots activists from that area and all over the state to collaborate and communicate. We are stronger together!

Monthly Meetings

IMPACT is an alliance, building infrastructure for collaboration, coordination, and communication among grassroots organizations.
We meet monthly to plan upcoming events and actions and discuss topics of importance to progressive causes. 

SOME OF THE THINGS WE DO!

We met as a result of working to become Bernie Sanders delegates to the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Through that shared experience we discovered the need to connect like-minded activists throughout our home state of Oregon. 
  • OUR FIRST MEETING ON THE STEPS OF THE STATE CAPITAL IN SALEM, OREGON

    Shortly after the Democratic National Convention we came together to start building the infrastructure to connect
    grassroots groups throughout the state.
  • STANDING WITH OUR COMMUNITY

    We participate in direct actions to make a stand for the things we believe in
  • THE SKIRTS!

    These skirt/banners made their first appearance at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
    We kind of love them! 
  • VOTER REGISTRATION

    Motor Voter was a good first step. We want to take it further
    by helping people who were automatically registered as unaffiliated with registration options that may help them more fully participate in all elections. 
  • SUPPLY RUN TO STANDING ROCK

    One of our inaugural members, Lisa Ortiz, organized many supply runs from Oregon to Standing Rock to stand in solidarity with the tribes who continue to stand up for our environment and future generations. Yep; there's one of those skirt/banners from the DNC that we gifted to the people of Standing Rock.
  • WOMEN'S MARCH

    After the inauguration we were takin' to the streets along with an estimated five million participants worldwide! 
    Yep; there's one of those skirts again!
