Oregon Organic Coalition (OOC) Membership helps strengthen organic policy in Oregon. The OOC is a 501(c)(6), organic trade membership organization. Membership with the OOC has numerous benefits, but most importantly, it offers the opportunity for members from the various sectors of Oregon's organic industry to collaborate, acting as a galvanizing force, bringing a unified vision and representation to our communities and Oregon's legislative process through awareness of, and advocacy for, organic policy in the state. By supporting the efforts of the OOC, the organic community can build more awareness of the positive economic, social, and environmental impacts of Oregon's organic industry, as well as affect change through cultivating and supporting measures that protect organic integrity and businesses in Oregon.
