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 those who represent us and joining others in support or opposition of proposed legislation. 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 focusing solely on the issues that affect all of agriculture.

Last fall we conducted our inaugural legislative training for members with an interest in the legislative process. The event was organized jointly with Oregon Women in Timber. We provided an educational orientation about the legislative process, provided a tour of the Capitol, and scheduled group meetings with elected officials. The training was held during Legislative Days so participants had the opportunity to attend hearings.
