Oregon Women for Agriculture does everything possible to see that agricultural interests are heard and dealt with fairly. This includes interacting with the legislature, visiting the men and women who represent us. We have an adopt-a-legislator program that allows our members to easily connect and converse with those at the state capitol.
Oregon Women for Agriculture is also a member of Ag-PAC. Ag-PAC is a coalition of natural resource based organizations who endorse candidates and measures that are supportive of farming, ranching and timber industries.
Oregon Women for Agriculture is a non-partisan organization who focuses solely on the issues that affect all of agriculture.
