Kick Weyerhaeuser out of Old Growth

Wanna help us kick Weyerhaeuser out of old growth? We're hiring an old growth organizer to come on board at RAN to change the way business is done in the logging industry. The old growth organizer position will strengthen, broaden, and diversify the network of grassroots indigenous rights, rainforest conservation, and climate change activists and groups.

Prioritizing tasks, volunteer coordination, the ability to engage with corporate and municipal wood and paper buyers, and the ability to empower and motivate grassroots activists in carrying out campaign tactics are necessary. The position requires good decision-making skills, professional initiative and results-oriented behavior. Previous successful campaign experience is required; nonviolent direct action experience is an asset. Check out our job postings for information on how to apply to join the RAN team.

Wild Oats - your work is making a difference

With the end of the year fast approaching, and Wild Oats still not committing to drop Weyerhaeuser, your time and energy this month is so crucial. We want to hit 20 actions this month - so if you haven't already taken action, you could...

Submit a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Drop a formal letter off to the manger of the store and request a meeting to talk about the issue. Postcard and pass out materials to shoppers in front of the store. There is a lot you can do.

See what's been going on so far in December:

In Boulder, where Wild Oats is headquartered, the local radio station covered the protest by the Boulder Rainforest Action Group. The manager of the store shared apples with our supporters, and a musician from the jam band "String Cheese Incident" actually posed for pictures with our supporters after signing a postcard...

From California to Massachusetts, activists sent over 1000 emails and gathered over 500 postcards addressed to the CEO of Wild Oats, and organized half a dozen meetings with local Wild Oats managers.

Retired? Taking a break?

If you have business or law experience, you might be the perfect person to help us speak directly to Weyerhaeuser's customers. If you're good on the telephone, understand the campaign, and are excited about the opportunity to communicate directly with corporate decision makers, then please call Jess and Sharon at 415-398-4404.
