Oregon Legislature

2018 Legislative Session

The 2018 Oregon Legislative Session has come to an end, and as always, OEA members made a tremendous impact on the outcome of the work done at the Capitol. In just 21 days, OEA members emailed or called their legislators more than 1,700 times. More than 150 OEA members attended OEA Lobby Day on Feb. 5, 2018 and held meetings with nearly every single legislator that day. Go here to read a full recap on OEA's top priorities for the 2018 Legislative Session.

Lifting Your Voice in Salem

We need your help to advocate for the schools and services that Oregon deserves – Oregon can be the beacon of hope during these very turbulent times. Becoming an education advocate is easier than you might think. It starts with the simple request of sharing your story. Tell us about your students and what they need to be successful. Share your triumphs – and your challenges – when you walk through the doors of your building each day.

OEA has launched an ongoing story collection effort called “Lift Every Voice” – and each legislative session, we share a new educator story every day. Find these stories on our Instagram (@oregoneducation), and go to: www.oregoned.org/shareyourstory to share your own.
