We’re still celebrating that the Forest Service withdrew the Flat Country timber sale!
Last month, the Forest Service withdrew its decision to sell over 2,000 acres of mature and old-growth forest in the Willamette National Forest for logging. Called the Flat Country Project, this logging sale would have been disastrous for our climate and the health of Oregon forests. This is a major victory, and would not have been possible without the President’s Earth Day Executive Order, the organizing of the Climate Forest Campaign, and, most importantly, advocates like you!

Ongoing request to support Indigenous Elders who were evicted from their homes in the Winnemucca Indian Colony
In December, Indigenous elders were wrongfully evicted and banished from their homes in the Winnemucca Indian Colony (Paiute and Shoshone lands, Nevada). Attorneys from Water Protector Legal Collective (WPLC) and Nevada Legal Services (NLS) had requested to stay the eviction and banishment orders. But on Dec 28, the Inter-Tribal Court of Appeals of Nevada (ITCAN) denied the stay and ordered them to leave the homes they have lived in for decades. WPLC and NLS attorneys will continue to fight the eviction, and the fight isn’t over. Read the full update from WPLC here.
Support Request: Many Indigenous elders and residents who were evicted have nowhere else to go. They are requesting support to help with temporary housing.
