Oregonians have faced tremendous challenges over the past year. The pandemic and resulting economic crises have impacted millions of working people, families, and businesses. Many communities are still struggling to recover from last year's deadly wildfires, and already bracing for another season. Our society is slowly confronting the legacy that centuries of racist policy, spending and discrimination have taken on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.

It's time to invest in our communities, put people back to work on projects that will reduce climate pollution, rebuild our neighborhoods, better connect us with each other, and improve the quality of life for all Oregonians.
