I’ll start with the good news first. This year, Oregon lawmakers passed a number of bills that protect and expand access to healthcare for Oregonians like Cover All Kids, Reproductive Health Equity, and the Healthcare Protections Bill. Across the state and nationally, family advocates and health experts have cheered the progress in Oregon.

And with good reason: As threats to healthcare loom at the national level, Oregon leaders need to do everything they can to protect coverage, reduce premiums, and provide certainty for Oregon families. The Oregon Healthcare Protections Bill does just that, ensuring more Oregonians have healthcare than ever before.

But a small collection of extremist groups, like the anti-LGBTQ Oregon Family Council, and a handful of conservative legislators are trying to do undo all that progress. They’ve written a referendum that would rollback key pieces of the Healthcare Protections Bill — taking away healthcare and raising premiums for more than half a million Oregonians.

The stakes couldn’t be higher, and this attack on Oregonians’ healthcare is already underway. Signature gatherers are hitting the streets now to qualify Referendum 301 for the ballot, so we have to act fast to protect Oregon families.

Here’s how you can help:

Contact your legislator today and urge them to stand up and speak out against this dangerous referendum. Then, talk to your friends, your family, and your social network about declining to sign Referendum 301. Every signature this extremist coalition gathers puts Oregonians’ healthcare more at risk, so we have to get the word out now.

If we stand together, speak out, and fight back against these attacks, we can protect Oregon families.

Oregonians for Immigration Reform, an organization with deep ties to white nationalist groups, is moving forward with Initiative Petition 22, which would repeal our state’s 30-year-old inclusivity law (ORS 181A.820) prohibiting the use of state and local resources to enforce federal immigration law.

This state law was passed in 1987, because local law enforcement personnel were racially profiling U.S. citizens and conducting raids where they lived, worked and worshipped. ORS 181A.820 prohibits this kind of discrimination. Rolling back laws like this would be a huge setback for our state - and goes against the values and mission of the Fair Shot for ALL coalition. We’ve spent the last few years fighting against exclusion and discrimination in Oregon and we won’t stand by while those victories are attacked and the rights of our neighbors are eroded.

We’ve heard from officials throughout the state that they do not want to spend precious resources to enforce Trump’s questionable policies, and that immigration enforcement remains the sole responsibility of the federal government.

Help us Defend Oregon’s values and sign our pledge to keep Oregon a welcoming state.  

IP 22 is bad for Oregon, so all of us need to make sure Oregonians vote no. Here are just a few of the reasons why:

It would undermine community trust. Oregon state and local law enforcement officials are strong proponents of ensuring that immigration enforcement remains the sole responsibility of the federal government, because they know from experience it makes our communities safer. When community members don’t trust state and local law enforcement, they won’t report crimes to the police or appear in court to testify.

It would harm Oregon families. Immigrant families have been in Oregon for generations and are part of the fabric of our state. Repealing this law will give law enforcement license to profile citizens and aspiring citizens alike. Immigrants are our neighbors and colleagues, our friends and family, and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect regardless of their country of birth. And like other Americans, immigrants have a right to a fair trial and due process.

It would decimate Oregon’s economy. Immigrants play a vital role in our state’s culture and economy, and they’ve made our communities stronger for generations. We know immigrants are also more likely than native-born Oregonians to start small businesses, which are the backbone of our local economy. Many sectors rely on immigrant employees to keep their businesses competitive and growing, including agriculture and technology. Repealing this law would send a message to that Oregon is not a welcoming state, only worsening our labor shortage and crushing our economy.

Join our movement to keep Oregon a state where all of us are treated with dignity and respect. Keeping Oregon strong. Sign our pledge.

The 2017 legislative session is now adjourned and we’ve been eager to share the final results with you.

With your support, we put forth a bold legislative agenda to create economic opportunities for more Oregonians by taking on some of the longstanding inequities that prevent women, people of color, LGBTQ and working families from getting a fair shot at success in this economy.

Oregonians from across the state made thousands of phone calls, emails, and letters; testified at dozens of hearings, and met with legislators to make sure our voices were heard.

And your hard work made a difference.

Here’s a rundown of what your support made possible this legislative session:

Cover All Kids: Oregon is now set to become the seventh state following California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Washington, D.C., and Washington state to provide coverage to 100% of children. Learn more.

End Profiling: Building on three years of hard work by our coalition, community groups, and law enforcement, this legislation secures resources for tracking and ending police profiling in every corner of the state. Learn more.

Reproductive Health Equity: This nationally significant legislation ensures that every Oregonian can decide when and whether to become a parent - regardless of income, type of insurance, citizenship status or gender identity. Learn more.

And while lawmakers did not approve paid family and medical leave insurance or tenant protections that would help keep families in their homes amidst a statewide housing crisis, we raised the dialogue on both issues and built support that will carry forward to future sessions.
While we have much to celebrate, our work is far from done. This coalition will be back—stronger and with even more resolve to ensure all Oregonians have a fair shot. We hope you’ll join us.

This Saturday, over 300,000 working Oregonians will receive a much-needed raise when our state’s minimum wage increases. This means that full-time minimum wage workers in the Portland area will see a $3,210 increase in their annual pay and minimum wage workers in the rest of the state will earn an extra $1,040 over the course of the year.
This boost in the minimum wage is the result of the phone calls, letters, and emails to legislators YOU sent to lawmakers last year, convincing them to raise the wage across the state. 
With nearly a quarter of Oregon’s workforce concentrated in low-wage jobs, our efforts to raise the wage and defend against attacks on policies that help working Oregonians are making a real difference in people’s lives. Women and people of color have a disproportionate share of low wage jobs, and by raising the wage, we are helping working Oregonians support their families and strengthening our state’s economy.

Table of Increases.jpg

It’s important for workers to check to make sure the raise they expect on July 1 shows up in their paychecks. With three regions and annual increases, there may be instances of employers forgetting to raise wages. Concerned workers can head to the Bureau of Labor and Industries website or call 971-673-0844 to find tools for making sure they’re getting paid the right amount.

 Nobody who works full time should live in poverty. The minimum wage increase on July 1 is a step forward to hundreds of thousands of Oregonians and another reminder that when we stand together, a fair shot at prosperity for all is within our grasp.

When this legislative session kicked off in February, we had hopes that Oregon would be a beacon of justice, pushing back against draconian rollbacks to human and worker rights. We hoped Oregon would position itself to stand up to the Trump administration’s agenda of divisiveness and disinvestment in our communities. As the session comes to a close, we are fearful that our lawmakers will not rise to this challenge. 

Take action now and tell your legislators to take action before session ends.

These final days of session give lawmakers an opportunity to stand strong against hate and discrimination and to instead make Oregon a place that advances civil rights for people of color, women, LGBTQ communities, immigrants and refugees, and all our families.

We are calling on legislators to take action now and pass these five bills to provide economic opportunity to more Oregonians and give all of us a Fair Shot:

Cover All Kids (SB 558/HB 2726)

Provides health insurance to Oregon’s 18,000 uninsured kids who are overwhelmingly children of color and growing up in families that struggle to afford the basics. 

End Profiling (HB 2355)

Ends the harmful practice of police profiling by creating the right tools to adequately track profiling, the oversight to stop it when it occurs, and the training to prevent it from happening in the first place

Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance (HB 3087)

Ensures that we can all take time off from work to recover from illness, to care for a new baby or be there for a seriously ill family member in need—without losing our jobs or sacrificing much-needed income.

Reproductive Health Equity (HB 3391)

Empowers all Oregonians, regardless of income, citizenship status, gender identity, or type of insurance, to make their own decisions about whether and when to have children.

Stable Homes for All (HB 2004)

Protect the 4 in 10 Oregonians who rent their homes from being evicted without a reason and without recourse or legal protections. 

As the Trump administration and DC politicians push an agenda that jeopardizes our rights and divides our communities, we look to our local lawmakers in Salem to stand up for our values.

Now is the time for leadership. Please contact your legislator today and tell them you expect them to take action on these five bills before the session ends.

Quinton was walking home on a fall evening when he was detained, harassed, and injured by police just steps from his front door in Newberg, Oregon. The officers accused Quinton of walking in the middle of the street. When he said he hadn’t been, one of them pointed a gun at Quinton. Scared, Quinton turned to run and was quickly thrown to the ground with his hands behind his back, his shoulder popping from its socket in the process. After being subjected to verbal harassment and racial epithets, Quinton was arrested and later found guilty of criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

This experience was severely traumatizing. Whenever I see a police car, my heart begins to race. My anxiety got so bad, I had to leave school. I was ultimately diagnosed with PTSD and got therapy to help manage the stress. Because of my record, I wasn’t able to join the Peace Corps. I still feel pain in my ankle and shoulder where I was injured that night.

While legislators banned police profiling in 2015, the truth is that it’s still happening every day in communities across Oregon. And we know that low-income neighborhoods, communities of color, and LGBT people are targeted the most.
Tell your legislators that it’s time to end police profiling here in Oregon.
House Bill 2355 will require police departments to collect data on all pedestrian and traffic stops. The bill also requires training in cultural competency and implicit bias for all state and local law enforcement officers and establishes a statewide system to hold police departments accountable for profiling.
Contact your legislators today, asking them to pass HB 2355 and move forward with data collection, mandatory training, and a statewide system of accountability.

The biggest rally for revenue and an investments budget is only days away, and it couldn’t come at a more critical time. We need you there. This week, after months of obstruction and empty promises from the big business on how to fix our broken tax system, they had the audacity to release a “plan” that has so little substance, it might as well not exist. It’s frustrating but unsurprising that big and out-of-state businesses are still determined to not pay their fair share. 

On top of that, the education budget committee passed a K-12 education budget that is woefully below the Quality Education Model, and not nearly enough to stave off deeper cuts to our schools. This budget will result in increases to our already 3rd worst in the nation class sizes, and hundreds of teachers losing their jobs. 

With only 6 weeks left in this legislative session, the Oregon Can’t Wait - Rally for Revenue is our chance to send a strong message that cuts budgets and empty proposals are unacceptable. It's long past time for the legislature to choose families over corporations. For decades, the budget has been balanced on the backs of working families and students. We need everyone there. 

Nearly 1,200 people are already pledging to come rally -- Our coalition only needs 137 more to get to 1,300 RSVPs. Can you be one of them?? Space is filling up fast, so RSVP now to reserve your free lunch and free transportation. 

Remember, if you need transportation, there will be free buses in Portland, Eugene, and Corvallis leaving by 10 a.m. on June 6th. All you need to do to reserve a spot is RSVP. Here are the details: 
●    Portland: Lents Park- 4808 SE 92nd Ave
●    Eugene: 2800 Gateway St., Springfield, OR- by Ross and Cabela’s
●    Corvallis: Adam’s Hall, 606 SW 15th St

Are you excited?! You should be. This rally is going to make a giant impact and you’re going to help make it happen. See you on Tuesday, June 6th. 

P.S. After you RSVP, or even if you can’t make it, can you take 2 minutes to send an email to your legislator urging them to raise taxes on big corporations so we can finally invest in Oregon families? Thanks!

AuthorChristine Saunders

You may have heard by now: Oregonians are bracing for $1.4 billion in budget cuts as a result of our state’s lowest-in-the-nation corporate taxes. Without action to generate new revenue, we face severe cuts to education, health care, and other programs that would harm Oregonians in every part of the state, especially women and people of color. 

Recently, some of our legislators showed bold leadership by introducing a plan to raise corporate taxes to make investments in education and other critical services. This is a good first step, but we still have a long way to go. If lawmakers do not show leadership and ask corporations to pay their fair share the results will be devastating: 3,000 teachers could lose their jobs and 350,000 Oregonians would be kicked off their health insurance. 

Real reform to our corporate tax system will allow us to move forward in the fight to ensure that every Oregonian feels safe in their community and has access to a quality public education, health care, a stable home, and a fair shot at economic success.

We need to tell our elected leaders it’s outrageous to ask Oregonians to accept deeper cuts while Oregon has one of the lowest corporate taxes in the nation. We need them to ask corporations to pay more, and we can’t wait. 

On June 6th, we will join the A Better Oregon coalition to storm the steps of the Capitol to make sure legislators know that Oregon Can’t Wait for more revenue. Be part of history as we form to make one of the largest crowds the State Capitol has ever seen with 1,000 people rallying. 

Can we count on you to join us on Tuesday June 6th for our largest and most important event of the session? 

To sign up, please click this RSVP form. (Lunch will be provided. So will transportation from Portland, Corvallis and Eugene!)

This fight has never been more important, and we really need your help. Thank you for your commitment to make A Better Oregon!

Charmaine was raising her children in the same Portland neighborhood where she was raised. They went to the schools she went to and the family was part of the community. They lived in their house with a backyard big enough for a trampoline for seven years. Charmaine was a good tenant and there had never been any issues. After she asked for some repairs to the house, though, she faced every Oregon renter’s worst fears: she received a “no cause” eviction notice.
State law allows property managers and landlords to evict with no reason and tenants have no recourse. In a flash, Charmaine’s home was gone. She was unable to find a home in her neighborhood or even in her town. Her family had to move across the river to Vancouver and her children are in new schools, far from the community they grew up in. 
This story is being replayed across Oregon. Our inflated housing market encourages landlords to take advantage of these no-cause evictions, leaving renters with few options.
Tell your senator to support House Bill 2004. 

House Bill 2004 will limit the unfair no-cause evictions that are happening to families like Charmaine’s. It has passed the House of Representatives and is now going through the Senate. Unfortunately, deep-pocketed and powerful special interests have launched an attack against the bill, trying to stop it before it can get to the Governor’s desk to become law.
That’s why everyone must contact their senator today to vote YES on HB 2004.
Take action now, for Oregon families. Stop unfair evictions.

Last fall, Hanna and her husband John were excited to be growing their family. Then tragedy struck. At her 20-week ultrasound, Hanna learned that the baby’s brain hadn't formed properly. She would face severe health and mental problems, if she survived at all.
A few weeks later, Hanna made the painful decision to end her pregnancy. Not long after returning home from the hospital with empty arms, Hanna received a bill in the mail for $2,123. It felt like a sucker punch.

Contrary to much of the rhetoric about abortion, which paints poor women as irresponsible and lazy, and rich women as selfish—in the end, I believe the decision to let River go was the most loving, most moral decision I’ve ever made.
— Hanna

Tell your legislator to support the Reproductive Health Equity Act
and ensure that every Oregonian has the affordable care we need to make decisions about our health.
At least 43,000 women of reproductive age in Oregon face high deductibles policies of $2,500 or more—that’s over a month’s salary for those earning minimum wage. While most plans cover abortion, the cost must first come out of this deductible, leaving the procedure unaffordable and inaccessible for many.
For people living paycheck to paycheck, denying access to abortion can jeopardize a family’s financial security and push them deeper into poverty.
Contact your elected officials today and tell them that every Oregonian needs access to affordable reproductive health care.
The decision about whether and when to become a parent is one of the most important decisions that we all face, and it’s a decision with important implications for our families, our economic security and our futures.
Join us and send the message loud and clear: it’s time to give every Oregonian the reproductive health care our families need to thrive.

Fatima will never forget the day her older sister suffered her first seizure. News of epilepsy would bring sadness and stress for any family, but for her family, it also put them at risk of losing their home as they questioned how they’d pay for care.

Fatima remembers times when her sister went weeks without medication because her family couldn’t afford it, causing her sister to suffer uncontrollable epileptic seizures.

Fatima and her siblings were among the nearly 18,000 Oregon kids who are ineligible for health insurance under the Oregon Health Plan. For these kids and their families, a lack of health insurance means untreated illnesses, unfilled cavities, unhealed injuries and unnecessary trips to the emergency room. The result is often tragic: medical emergencies that turn into family bankruptcies, and preventable diseases that become chronic illnesses and jeopardize lives.

Fear and worry consumed my childhood. My mother would tell me not to play as rough as the other kids because I might break a bone or not to catch another cold because we couldn’t afford any more visits to the doctor.

At Fair Shot for All, we believe we can do better for kids like Fatima and her siblings. We’re fighting to extend health coverage to every kid who calls Oregon home.

It’s not right that Fatima and kids across Oregon are denied the coverage they need to grow up healthy. Tell your legislator it’s time to Cover All Kids.

For these children, health insurance means getting glasses to see the classroom blackboard. It means regular visits to the doctor to keep them healthy. It means fewer school absences for them and fewer missed days at work for their parents. And it means a better shot at graduating from college, getting a good-paying job and thriving throughout adulthood.

Oregon families are struggling enough. We can’t afford to have a medical emergency turn into a family bankruptcy.

Contact your elected officials today and tell them that covering all kids is key to building a stronger, healthier future for Oregon families.

Together with our partners like the Oregon Latino Health Coalition, we’re fighting hard to make sure that Oregonians have what we need to thrive— affordable health care, jobs that support our families, a stable home in a safe community.

All five campaigns on our 2017 agenda have passed the first legislative deadline but we need your help to send the message loud and clear: every Oregonian needs real economic opportunity and a fair shot at a secure future. 

Legislators need to hear from you why Oregon needs to improve access to affordable, culturally competent health care; empower people to make decisions about when and whether to parent; establish workplace policies that give us time to care for ourselves and our families; give all families a safe, stable place to call home; and make sure every Oregonian is treated fairly under the law.

Tell Your Legislators: Support a Fair Shot for All!

AuthorChristine Saunders

We’ve almost completed 2 months of the Legislative Session! This week marks a milestone as each of the campaigns on the Fair Shot for All 2017 Legislative Agenda have had their first hearings at the Capitol. 

Cover All Kids

Oregon is one step closer to ensuring that every child has access to health insurance and is on the pathway to success. The Cover All Kids campaign has passed its first legislative hurdle by moving out of the House and Senate Health Care Committees. The bills now await hearings in the Ways and Means Committee.



End Profiling

In 2015 Fair Shot for All helped pass legislation that banned profiling by law enforcement. This year we’re taking the next step to address profiling by asking the legislature to collect better data, require training of all law enforcement officers, establish accountability mechanisms, and address disparities in drug crimes. HB 2355 is expected to pass out of the House Committee on Judiciary next week. 

Family and Medical Leave Insurance

Most Oregonians will one day need time away from work to deal with a serious personal or family illness or to care for a new child. Over 100 community members came to Salem Thursday to share this message with their legislators during the first Family and Medical Leave Insurance (FAMLI) Act hearing in the House Committee on Early Childhood and Family Supports. 

Reproductive Health Equity

The Reproductive Health Equity bill, HB 3391, had its first hearing last week in the House Committee on Health Care. Fair Shot coalition partners sent a message loud and clear: Every Oregonian--regardless of income, citizenship status, gender identity, or type of insurance--must have access to full reproductive health coverage. 



Stable Homes for Oregon Families

Today, far too many Oregonians are experiencing extreme rent increases and no-cause evictions. Hundreds turned out on March 2nd to testify in support of HB 2004 in front of House Committee on Human Services and Housing.

Oregon is in a housing crisis; especially when it comes to renters. Rents are rising much faster than wages, and people are losing their homes through no fault of their own due to the practice of "no-cause evictions." This has fueled a rapid rise in homelessness, housing instability, and the crushing of dreams for many families -- and if you're a renter in Oregon, it can happen to you too.

Enough is enough. It's time for the Oregon Legislature to act and protect families who work so hard to keep a roof over their heads. 

1. It's time to end no-cause evictions. As it currently stands, no matter how great a renter you are, or how long you've lived in a home, you can lose your home without cause. That's right, your landlord can tell you to leave without giving you a reason. 

2. It's time to let Oregon cities decide whether or not rent-stabilization is right for them. Currently, Oregon state law prohibits cities from enacting rent-control unless extenuating circumstances exist -- and if lawmakers can agree on what those extenuating circumstances are. That's right. If Oregon City wants to enact rent-stabilization, they are BARRED from doing so. Some markets are at a critical moment where continued housing instability due to rising rents will undermine their entire economic success as a city -- they need the freedom to enact rent-stabilization if they deem necessary.

The Reproductive Health Equity Act ensures that Oregonians, regardless of income, citizenship status, gender identity or type of insurance, have access to the full range of preventive reproductive health services, including family planning, abortion, and postpartum care. Healthier bodies lead to healthier families, and healthier families lead to healthier communities. Our elected leaders need to hear from all of us why this bill matters and why they must act now.

Over the past 2 years Fair Shot for All has delivered big victories for Oregonians including raising the minimum wage, passing paid sick leave, ensuring that everyone has a secure path to save for retirement, reducing barriers to employment by banning the criminal background box from job applications, and banning profiling by law enforcement.
We have made significant progress, but our work to address historic and systemic economic inequities for people of color, LGBTQ people, immigrants, women, and working people continues. 

Now more than ever, it is important that we join together reaffirm our commitment to equity and economic justice and protect the victories for working families in our state.

With the changing national political landscape, and the presidential election - we have seen an alarming rise in hate speech, and racist incidents happening in communities across Oregon. It's never been clearer to me, that many people still do not have a FAIR SHOT. But even though this political climate puts a magnifying glass on the divide, the reality is none of this is new. Deep disparities exist in every aspect of American life. From healthcare and education, to unemployment and housing, to community safety, we know that many of us are still struggling, and have been for generations. This is why Fair Shot for All was founded. Our coalition has made significant strides for Oregon over the past several years.  We won't stop until EVERYONE in Oregon has a fair shot.

Today marks the first day of the legislative session and we have a comprehensive agenda that takes bold steps forward to protect Oregonians’ rights, and sets the stage for Oregon to continue to lead the rest of the country. We know that supporting each other is key to winning a fair shot for all Oregonians. That is why we are prioritizing the following:

Our 2017 Agenda:

  • Cover All Kids (SB 558, HB 2726)
  • Reproductive Health Equity (HB 2232)
  • End Profiling (HB 2355)
  • Stable Homes for All (HB 2004)
  • Paid Family Medical Leave

Join us, in the movement to win a Fair Shot for ALL Oregonians, and sign the petition!

Thank you for your continued support.
