Be the Change

Democratic policies and innovations can and do start with YOU.  In the Democratic Party of Oregon 2016 Platform Convention, delegates will discuss, debate and decide on what will be the top priorities for our Party as we move into the next year.  We were on the forefront of marriage equality, tuition equity and a number of progressive changes over the last years. The top priorities as decided by the Convention delegates (YOU!) will be at the top of the lobby list for the Party.
The Convention is coming up SOON (Friday eve. March 4- Sunday March 6, Hillsboro HS, Hillsboro)
