What a week it’s been for Fair Shot! On Monday Cover All Kids had its first hearing, on Tuesday hearings continued at the Capitol and dozens turned out in Hillsboro to share their stories of profiling with the Attorney General. Next week is looking just as busy and we want you to join us!

Stable Homes for Oregon Families Hearing & Lobby Day

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. Join us March 2, 2017 in Salem to lend your voice, speak with our legislators directly and demand an end to no cause evictions and the ban on rent stabilization. 

Option 1: Lobby Training and Lobby Visits with Legislators, 12pm-5pm. 
Option 2: Housing Hearing and Testimony, 5pm-8pm. 
Option 3: All day! Lobby Training, Visits with Legislators, and Housing Hearing and Testimony, 12pm-8pm. 

Contact Your Legislator

Can’t make it to Salem? Your legislators still need to hear from you about these important policies. 

Oregon renters need stable homes!

Add your comments and share your story: tell your legislators how no-cause evictions and rent increases are harming you and your community. 

We need Reproductive Health Equity now!

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.

The Fair Shot agenda is building momentum. It’s only about to heat up from here. Join the movement to make sure all Oregonians get a fair shot!
