Mission Statement

Eugene Weekly exists to boldly question prevailing wisdom and authority. We expose corporate practices and public policies that benefit the few at the expense of the many. We provide a voice for the oppressed and dismissed, and support unfettered artistic expression. As informed citizens, we carry a responsibility for community leadership. We advocate aggressively for environmental sanity, government accountability, sustainable economics, social justice, cultural diversity, tolerance, and the lively, free interchange of ideas and opinions. We also seek to provide employment, training and a supportive work environment for Eugene’s most creative writers, artists, photographers, graphic designers, salespeople, office workers and managers.

Call (541) 484-0519 to talk to anyone from EW.

For news tips contact Editor Camilla Mortensen. You can also contact Camilla Mortensen for Slant tips, Biz Beat, Happening People and to submit an editorial viewpoint.

Letters to the editor should be fewer than 250 words and sent to letters@eugeneweekly.com along with your full name, address and phone number for our files. We welcome letters on all topics and will print as many as space allows, with priority given to letters on timely local issues received before Friday at 5 pm. We prefer letters written in the body of the email, not attachments, that have not also been submitted elsewhere. Local letter writers are given priority and we limit letter writers to one print letter a month. For those who prefer not to use email, fax to 484-4044 or mail to 1251 Lincoln, Eugene 97401.

For the arts — music, film, visual arts, theater etc. — contact our Arts Editor at bob@eugeneweekly.com

Comments Policy

The goal of Eugene Weekly's comments section is to provide substantive conversation in the Eugene-Springfield and Lane County community and surrounding areas. We hope that comments will draw together insightful, active and civil discussions among EW's readers, writers, reporters and editors.

All comments must be respectful. We do not delete comments because we disagree with them. Only comments that violate these guidelines will be deleted by EW staffers.

Please note, we do not control Facebook or Disqus' comments or spam policies.

By submitting content, you are consenting to the following guidelines:

• Do not submit inappropriate comments, including content that is illegal, violent, libelous, defamatory or pornographic.

•Do not submit comments degrading others on the basis of gender, race, class, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability or other classification. 

• Do not threaten, intimidate, or harass commenters or writers/editors. Do not advertise or solicit in our comment section.

• Do not dox (publish private or identifying information about other people with malicious intent).

Comments that are on-topic or related to the article at hand receive more leeway than unrelated comments. We are unlikely to allow comments that derail the conversation or deter other commenters with their vitriol. 

Commenters who violate the policy will be warned. After three violations, you will be banned from the FB page. 

Stay on topic, stay civil, and always feel free to write a letter to the editor. Send your maximum of 250 word letters to letters@eugeneweekly.com with your name and address for verification. If you’d like to voice your opinion more privately send an email to editor@eugeneweekly.com.
