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.
New Mexico is one of nine states that still has an unconstitutional, pre-Roe v. Wade statute on the books that criminalizes abortion in almost all circumstances. If Roe v. Wade falls, this law could become enforceable again, making abortion a crime and jeopardizing access to safe and legal care in New Mexico. We must come together to repeal this outdated law.
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.

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.
