ECETI Ranch is currently facing challenges from the county to stay open to our friends and family for skywatching and small spiritual gatherings. We have been fighting this battle for over a year and faced demonstrated discrimination, bias and harassment from the land use commission and planning department of Klickitat County because our views are different that those shared by county officials. In addition to land use challenges we have also been told that none of our buildings (including our main residence) are allowed and/or permitted and we do not have the right to reside in any building on the property (regardless of necessary permits on file). We are also a working farm and committed to creating a sustainable lifestyle as a model for a more sustainable way of living.
As a result of these ongoing challenges, we have had to hire an attorney specializing in these matters to represent us in this process. We have a court date scheduled for June. The legal fees for this battle are mounting and at this time we are not able to meet those financial needs as it has drained our available resources. We have been told that our legal fees are estimated to be $15,000 in order to resolve all aspects of these challenges. Our legal team has advised that we have a solid case and demonstrated bias from county officials but that it is not possible to fight this battle without the financial resources. We are confident we will be successful with financial contributions from our friends to make this possible.
We have been in existence for 25 years as a non-profit organization and continue to offer a variety of events both onsite and online, many of which are free to the public. All other activities are on a donation basis as we are a non-profit organization. We have never asked for this type of support and we hesitate to do so now in light of the current economic and social unrest being experienced all around us but we have no choice than to reach out to each of you for assistance. Any amount
This work is more important now than ever and it is through your support that we can continue to be of service to those that are on the path to self mastery and awakening.
