We are .....
a statewide advocacy network that mobilizes Unitarian Universalists and their congregations to work for public policies in the state of Oregon that embody our UU principles of justice, equity, compassion in human relations and global stewardship.

We envision an Oregon that provides justice and equity for all its residents; empowers its residents to participate in the process of government; embodies respect, fairness, and equity; provides opportunities for everyone to thrive; and affirms the sanctity of the built and natural environments (Sept. 28, 2012; rev January 9, 2016)
