River Valley Organizing Main Logo


  • Our Challenge

    Our beautiful valley is polluted by petrochemical waste, our communities are polluted by poverty, and our friends and neighbors are polluted by pharmaceutical companies making money off selling us drugs and prison profiteers making money off locking us up. Economic disinvestment, racism and disenfranchisement make our towns ripe for exploitation by corporate interests hell-bent on profit, with no regard for human life, a healthy environment, or sustainable communities.

Our Mission

We bring out the voices that nobody is talking to. We move people along a path from scarcity and isolation to abundance and partnership. We are a member-driven organization that doesn’t do anything from the top down. We are what is missing in the progressive world. 

“We are leaders committed to restorative and transformative solutions for public health and justice that defy the isolation of incarceration, the impacts of racialized drug policies, the desolation of environmental degradation, and violent policing; empowering and strengthening the health and morale for all.” -Jessica, RVO organizer

Service to Power

We never do service for the sake of service. Everything we do in service is to build you power.

Our beautiful valley is polluted by petrochemical waste, our communities are polluted by poverty, and our friends and neighbors are polluted by pharmaceutical companies making money off selling us drugs and prison profiteers making money off locking us up.

We bring out the voices that nobody is talking to. We are the one piece that is missing in the progressive world. We are a member-driven organization that doesn’t do anything from the top down.

“We are leaders committed to restorative and transformative solutions for public health and justice that DEFY the isolation of incarceration, the impacts of racialized drug policies, the desolation of environmental degradation, and violent policing; empowering and strengthening the health and morale for all.”
