What we do

Community Alliance of Lane County (CALC) has been working since 1966 to create a more just and peaceful community. We collaborate with organizations, institutions, government and individuals to foster change.


Through our programs Progressive Responses, Back to Back, and SAfER, we show up and show out by promoting peace, dismantling hate, and educating others.

Shelter Rights

Homelessness is as an issue of economic justice and human rights. We push for policy changes and increased services to prevent homelessness and to assist homeless people.


With a presence in every public high school of Lane County, we are exposing and opposing the militarization of youth and promoting peaceful alternatives to military service.
