Las elecciones son importantes porque los políticos crean leyes que ayudan o perjudican a nuestras familias. Ya sea que se trate de gentrificación, violencia policial o la lucha continua por los derechos de los inmigrantes, los líderes electos están tomando decisiones sobre qué tipo de Oregón escuchamos y quiénes son bienvenidos aquí.
Una guía por y para las comunidades de raza negra, indígenas, Latinxs, gente de color y LGBTQ sobre cómo comprender y sobrevivir la pandemia del COVID-19.

The 2019 report seeks to inform policy makers, organizations and community members about both the policies that promote equitable outcomes for all families and the policies that harm families.
Oregon families who experience hunger know what it’s like to make the tough, daily decision between food and other basic necessities. Our housing, childcare, medical and transportation costs are all increasing while our wages remain stagnant, and we are forced to make difficult decisions about where to make cuts in already too tight budgets. Oregonians experiencing hunger also know that elected leaders can make a remarkable difference in our daily lives.
Our families make tough decisions every day — especially about healthcare. We trust Oregonians to make the right decision for themselves, whether that’s to become a parent or end a pregnancy.
Nuestras familias toman decisiones difíciles todos los días—especialmente acerca de los servicios de salud. Confiamos que las personas de Oregón toman la decisión correcta por sí mismas, ya sea convertirse en padres o interrumpir un embarazo.
The Oregon 101 visual timeline covers the resistance of communities, policies and programs that helped or harmed immigrant and refugee communities, and access to reproductive justice. This timeline helps participants learn about Oregon ballot measures that would target access to abortion, immigrant communities and communities of color. The timeline includes a trainer script and all materials necessary for organizations to conduct the workshop on their own. Download or preview the toolkit below.
The majority of Americans believe that a full range of reproductive healthcare, including abortion should be legal. Too often, this reality is clouded by myths about who does and does not support access to abortion care. Recent research about attitudes of rural New Mexicans breaks down those assumptions.
