Take Action: Support Better Wildfire Protection and Prevention

"Remarkable things happen when dedicated people working on one cause get a chance to talk shop with dedicated people working on another cause," says Sierra Club Oregon's Mary Fifield. "They not only discover that stories and strategies are similar but also that seemingly distinct issues share common ground when it comes to questions of equity."
