Who We Are
NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon is the leading grassroots pro-choice advocacy organization in Oregon and is a state affiliate of NARAL Pro-Choice America. Our 2018 strategic plan, developed over months of engagement by our Board of Directors and staff with input from over 75 members and key organizational allies, will guide us through the growth needed to effectively meet the challenges and embrace the opportunities that lie ahead. Knowing that Oregon needs a strong political force advocating for women and all people who can become pregnant, we have identified goals and strategies that we see as critical to our organizations’ – and our movement’s – success.
NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon develops and sustains a constituency that uses the political process to guarantee every person who can become pregnant the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion.
What We Do
- Organize our 13,000 members to make sure that our state and local leaders hear from their constituents – the 7 in 10 Americans who support safe and legal abortion.
- Work in partnership with progressive allies to advance legislation that protects and expands reproductive freedom in our state, and to prevent anti-abortion policies from being enacted.
- Endorse lawmakers who will be champions for reproductive freedom. Support and evaluate the implementation of progressive policies, like the Reproductive Health Equity Act, to ensure that the laws have the greatest impact on addressing disparities in access to reproductive healthcare.
- Galvanize elected leaders at every level of office, including school boards, county commissions and city councils to ensure that reproductive health, sex education and abortion access is prioritized at every level of elected office.
