Our Commitment to Oregon's Future
Oregon House Democrats are committed to building a future where everyone has access to the best that Oregon has to offer: affordable health care, a good job, quality public schools, strong communities, affordable housing, effective government, and equal rights for all.
Fighting for the Right to Health Care
We will work to ensure that every Oregonian has access to quality, affordable health care. We will push for lower prescription drug prices, ensure everyone has access to reproductive health care, combat the opioid addiction epidemic, and improve access to mental health care.
Investing in Quality Public Education
We will continue to support a quality public education system for every Oregonian from cradle-to-career. That means investing in early childhood programs, reducing class sizes and improving graduation rates at K-12 schools, making community colleges and universities more affordable, and supporting the expansion of modern career-technical education and vocational opportunities.
Building Strong Communities
We will build communities in every corner of Oregon that are welcoming, accessible, and safe for everyone, through policies to reduce gun violence, domestic violence, and sexual violence. We will work to reduce homelessness and ensure more Oregonians have a safe and affordable place to call home. It is also vital that we identify critical projects to better prepare our state for natural disasters.
Defending Our Environment and Combating Climate Change
We will protect our environment and build a clean energy future that preserves our natural beauty, protects the air we breathe, and creates job opportunities across Oregon.
Strengthening Our Economy
Every Oregonian should have the ability to achieve their American dream. That is why we will work to boost small businesses and encourage living-wage job growth in every part of the state. We are committed to advocating for working Oregonians with policies that level the playing field and protect workers.
Ensuring Government is Responsive and Effective
When federal overreach threatens Oregonians’ fundamental rights and values, we will stand firm against extreme policies. We will keep Oregon’s government as efficient, transparent, and effective as possible, and protect the integrity of Oregon’s elections. We will work to build a revenue system that is fair, stable, and adequate to fund our state’s priorities.
Seeking Justice and Equal Rights for All
We will continue fighting to ensure that every Oregonian is afforded the same fundamental rights, regardless of their race, religion, gender, age, or sexual orientation. We are committed to making sure our justice system is fair for all, our seniors are respected and protected, immigrants feel welcomed and accepted, and veterans have the support they deserve once they return home.
Protecting Consumers at Home and Online
As the federal government increasingly sides with corporations at the expense of consumers and revokes Net Neutrality rules, we will seek to protect internet freedom, private information, and personal data. Oregonians deserve to know that their information will be kept secure, that they have rights if they are the victim of a data breach, and that they can expect internet privacy.
