Fighting for investments that make a difference in Oregon

Navigate Oregon

In recent years, Oregon has been creating a strong early childhood system. Our law enforcement, business, and retired military leaders are crucial voices in the fight for evidence-based programs that start in the prenatal period and span through high school graduation. By increasing the quality of home visiting services and pre-K, integrating deeper learning into classrooms, and improving career and technical education options, Oregon will strengthen its communities and economy.
