Renew Oregon is a clean energy advocacy coalition of businesses and workers, healthcare professionals and parents, farmers and ranchers, faith and community organizations, elected officials and individuals coming together to move Oregon away from polluting energy to a clean energy economy.
Devon is a core member of the Renew Oregon communications team, driving projects that tell the human story of climate change and pass policy that transitions Oregon to a clean energy economy.
Devon has been with Renew Oregon since the very beginning, helping build it up into the advocacy powerhouse it is today with over 1,000 coalition members from businesses and farms, to non-profits, faith and community organizations.
In 2016, Devon worked with Renew to pass the Clean Electricity and Coal Transition Act, a landmark law that transitions Oregon’s electricity grid off of polluting coal-fired power while simultaneously doubling the state’s commitment to clean electricity.
In 2017, Devon helped Renew protect the state’s Clean Fuels Standard, a law that decreases pollution from Oregon’s transportation sector.
For the last two years, Devon has worked on Renew Oregon’s effort to pass the Clean Energy Jobs bill. She has led the campaign’s statewide opinion piece strategy, facilitating the placement of over 70 opinion pieces in support of the bill in papers across the state. Authors range from doctors and tribal members, to equity advocates, business leaders, local workers, fisherman and local elected officials.
