Affirmative Action/Non-discrimination Statement

About Statement

Oregon's “Public Notification Plan” says we will advise clients and potential clients that Extension programs are available to all people. By including a nondiscrimination/affirmative action statement on your published materials, you also meet USDA Civil Rights requirements. We recommend you include the statement in newsletters, on notices of upcoming programs, and on materials promoting Extension activities.
