Oregon State Grange Policy

National Grange Policy Statements adopted 2017

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
  • Write a resolution to change Grange policy
  • Write a lawmaker your views on legislation in Salem or Washington, DC
