Creating Community Leadership

Southern Oregon Land Use Leadership Institute 2018 Cohort

Right now, across Southern Oregon, important decisions are being made that impact all of us. These decisions are often made without community input, creating a mismatch between decisions made and the real and growing needs of our community for things like affordable, accessible housing, public transportation, access to locally produced healthy foods, and a stable climate.

Since 2012 the 1000 Friends of Oregon’s leadership training program (LULI) has trained emerging community leaders on Oregon’s land use system and how it shapes the most-pressing land development issues such as housing and transportation. LULI works to prepare participants to be effective stakeholders in local and state decisions about issues that matter to them.

LULI is about much more than land use. It brings together emerging community leaders with a wide range of perspectives to work together for the outcomes our communities need. Together we’re building diverse, grassroots capacity to engage on land use debates and issues. We hope that you’ll apply to join us!

2018 Southern Oregon Program

The 2018 LULI Program will consist of six training sessions from September through December. Each session will focus in-depth on one specific issue to provide participants with a deeper understanding of land use advocacy. Topics include: Land Use 101, Urban Growth Boundaries, Housing, Transportation and Public Transit. Food, childcare, and transportation assistance available. There is no cost for participants.
