Thank you for visiting Rogue Valley Voice!

Our Voice
Rogue Valley Voice is a blog dedicated to advocacy for sustainability addressing the global climate crisis. Rogue Valley Voice is a positive, progressive voice in the Rogue Valley of southern Oregon. It complements the Rogue Valley Voice Facebook page.

Our editorial policy is to focus on emerging aspects in southern Oregon where we love to live: community, environmental stewardship, open-mindedness, peace and justice issues and other values that serve the common good.

We are non-partisan hoping to give voice to reasonable people, who are often part of the silent middle, between extremes. We tilt toward a progressive point of view, but strongly belive that our nation has become too polarized and our elected officials and political parties need to work together for the common good, rather than being ideologues.

We are ecumenical, non-sectarian, and generous in our inclusiveness. We write about issues with the hope of bringing us closer together rather than separating us.
