Oregon Action is a broad-based, multi-racial community organization dedicated to economic justice. We assist people to organize on their own behalf – with a focus on low-income people, people of color and others with limited access to traditional structures of power and policy-making. Through leadership development and community organizing, we provide the organizational base for participatory democracy, just communities and a fair economy.
Oregon Action works on basic economic, racial and social justice issues. Oregon Action is a statewide organization with local chapters. We have offices in NE Portland and Medford and we organize active local leadership in these two low-income communities. These two chapters work on local community issues and also provide the primary leadership for our statewide campaigns. Since we prioritize leadership development of traditionally disempowered constituents, our active leadership is more predominantly low-income and multi-racial than the population at large. Our statewide board of directors is made up of low-income, moderate-income progressives and activists, a majority of whom are people of color. This is a membership-run organization wherein members control the organization through participation on the state Board of Directors and local chapter campaign committees.
We are currently fighting to protect low income people of color, middle class families, seniors and Oregon’s most vulnerable from proposed state and federal budget cuts.
Our current campaigns include:
Immigration Reform, Senate Bill 742, Tuition Equity
