“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Oregon Action works on issues that profoundly influence people’s lives—jobs, health care, fair taxes, affordable housing, immigrant rights and an entire range of social and economic justice issues that touch us all and effect our quality of life. All of our work is based on a simple belief: that every person has value, and we all have a shared responsibility to help each other thrive. Government is best-equipped to carry that mutual responsibility—but only when people have the power to hold government accountable.
