Mission Statement

The Southern Oregon Resource Alliance (SORA) is a non-profit membership association of individuals, businesses, and organizations in Southern Oregon dedicated to the principle of responsible resource stewardship of the public lands in this area.

SORA believes that responsible resource stewardship calls for environmentally responsible utilization of natural resources in order to preserve the quality of life in Southern Oregon by maintaining a healthy availability of such resources, contributing to the economic stability of local communities, and providing recreational opportunities for all.

The mission of SORA is to advocate for responsible, balanced, and consistent utilization of local resources by investigating relevant issues and controversies, by developing, publicizing, and lobbying for positions on issues through education and representation, and, where appropriate, by initiating and participating in legitimate litigation of such issues.
