Oregon House Democrats, with our diverse perspectives and lived experiences, are connected to the unique issues of our districts and committed to serving all Oregonians, no matter who they are or where they live. From north to south, west to east, our individual districts are as distinctive as the state and people we serve

Seeking Access to Justice and Equal Rights for All

We have built a fairer criminal justice system that will keep our neighborhoods safer, protected underrepresented communities, and led the nation in making historic investments in veterans’ services. Now, we will continue fighting to ensure that every Oregonian is afforded the same fundamental rights.

Building a Strong Economy for All of Oregon

We have passed policies that level the playing field for every Oregonian, nurtured historically strong economic growth and made significant investments in rural Oregon. Now, we are working to combat economic inequality for working families and level the playing field so that every business, large and small, is able to grow and thrive

Preparing Oregon for the Climate Crisis and Natural Disasters

We have defended Oregon through policies that protect our air, land, and water, protected the natural resources our state depends on, and prepared for natural disasters. Now, we are doing our part to combat the devastating effects of climate change and build a more resilient state.

Strengthening Oregon’s Public Schools

We led the charge to make historic investments in Oregon’s public schools. Now, we are working to continue building the highest quality public education system for every Oregonian from cradle to career.

Protecting the Right to Health Care

We have ensured nearly every Oregonian has access to health insurance. Now, we are working to improve quality and affordability, lowering prescription drug prices, combatting the opioid addiction epidemic, and improving access to mental health care and substance abuse treatment and recovery.

Ensuring Everyone Has a Safe Place to Call Home

We have passed first-in-the-nation legislation to protect renters and made significant investments in affordable housing. Now, we are working to end homelessness, and ensure more Oregonians have access to an affordable, stable place to call home.

Making Government More Responsible, Effective

We have prudently managed Oregon’s finances and continually worked to improve our government so that it is efficient, transparent, and effective. Now, we are continuing that work so that everyone can have confidence in their government.
