Program

Grange members are educated on the importance of civic engagement and advocacy and empowered to serve their state and communities in a variety of ways.

  • Community Granges are a place where members can discuss ballot measures and local state, and national issues.
  • Current issues of interest include rural high-speed internet, water rights, public safety, school funding and more.
  • Any member can propose a resolution that addresses local, state, or federal concerns.
  • Grange Day at the Capitol brings members to Salem to experience our legislature in action.

Suggestions

  • Host a candidates’ forum: The Grange is non-partisan, which means that Subordinate/Community, Pomona, State, and National Granges do not support or oppose a candidate or party. However, your Grange can invite all candidates for an office to speak at an event. Invite your members, friends, relatives, and neighbors to attend and learn.
  • Organize an issue forum
  • Research and distribute information
  • Involve all Grangers
  • Publicize your Grange’s position on an issue
  • Recruit new members
