LA GRANDE — Two Eastern Oregon residents filed an initiative petition to recognize climate rights for Oregonians.

The petition, which was filed Wednesday, Aug. 9, by Peter Fargo, of Baker City, and Christopher Burford, of La Grande, looks to amend the Oregon Constitution to include the people of Oregon’s right to a safe climate. Fargo and Burford aim to collect over 160,000 signatures for the initiative to appear on the 2026 General Election ballot.
