The social, economic and environmental justice issues we face today are deeply rooted in oppression, prejudice, and lack of evidence-based approaches to solving problems. Legal strategies, while helpful, aren't sufficient to right the wrongs that are now embedded in our seemingly unmovable power structures.
Understanding that it is vital for workers' well being to have strong laws on their side, we take on policy advocacy efforts at the state and federal levels through our work with the Oregon Coalition to Stop Wage Theft and the Low-Wage Worker Legal Network, and our participation and leadership in various state coalitions and campaigns.
In addition to our own policy advocacy efforts, we support state and national campaigns that seek to improve working and economic conditions for workers in Oregon and beyond.
Some of the campaigns and/or groups we currently support are:
- Anti-Displacement PDX
- Fair Chance for All & Ban the Box
- Fair Shot Oregon
- Raise the Wage and $15 Now
- Immigration Reform
- Foreign Temporary Workers & H-2B Visa Program
