What I Believe

Nobody who works full time should live in poverty.

Oregon can take practical, effective steps to counter the obscene wealth and opportunity gaps prevailing in America.

Action We Need

  • Make Oregon’s tax system more progressive and productive. Keep building the progressive and diverse coalition that can make that happen

  • Stabilize ample funding for public education. Investing in K-12, community colleges and tech-ed programs are critical to opening doors to family wage jobs

  • Defend against so-called “right to work” measures and attacks on collective bargaining that shift even more power from working people to corporations.

  • Tilt economic development strategies towards locally-owned businesses and people who want to start them

  • Work with local governments across the state to make housing affordable for more Oregonians
