Passionate about comprehensive sex ed? Ready to elect leaders that will be accountable to youth-driven movements? Could you be the next NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon PAC Board Member?
Our PAC Board works to elect candidates we can trust to boldly advance and defend reproductive freedom in Oregon. Our PAC endorsement process identifies and supports pro-choice leaders at every level of government, including statewide officials, state legislators, county and municipal leaders, and will be endorsing school board candidates in 2021. Together, our endorsements have helped elect champions that have advanced some of the most progressive pro-choice policies in the nation. In addition to making critical endorsement decisions, our PAC board members provide guidance and work with our staff to provide critical election information to our members and identified supporters, support PAC fundraising, provide strategic advice and support to candidates, mobilize get out the vote efforts, and continue to engage with our champions when they are elected to office. In 2021, we are excited to work with candidates who will work to advance comprehensive sexual health education, increasing access to essential reproductive and gender-affirming health care, and who will work to meet the health and safety needs of most-impacted students including Black, Indigenous and other students of color, LGBTQ2IA+ and/or gender non-binary students.
It is vital to us that our Board leadership reflect the rich diversity of our community. Applicants that identify as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, or other people of color, gender non-binary and transgender individuals, people who identify as LGBTQIA+, immigrants/refugees, and people with disabilities are all highly encouraged to apply!
