We did it!
After years of organizing, telling our stories, lobbying our legislators, and beating back attacks from corporate special interests, all our hard work has paid off! Governor Kate Brown signed legislation yesterday raising Oregon’s minimum wage. Her signature is a step forward for our state, and our legislators and our governor are leading the nation on this important issue.
Today’s victory shows that when we stick together, we can make real gains for our families and our communities. Now we can regroup and begin organizing around other issues that matter.
