Have you ever thought about running for office? Are you an activist wanting to make a change? Or are you just interested in learning more about Oregon politics?
The Oregon Women’s Campaign School (OWCS) is just for you. As a non-profit, non-partisan, and independent organization, the OWCS has helped to organize women, and any pro-choice person, to run for office or work on an issue or candidate campaign for over 30 years.
By learning what it means to be a candidate or working as a staff member on a campaign, the Oregon Women’s Campaign School gives you the tools and guidance needed, from networking to fundraising, for a successful campaign.
The next Oregon Women’s Campaign School is coming up on March 15th – 16th at the World Trade Center in downtown Portland – there’s still time to register!
As one of this year’s sponsors, we think that this is a great opportunity to not only learn about Oregon politics, but also a great chance to meet the people that help shape them.

We wanted to personally thank Representative Earl Blumenauer for his continued support for animal rights!
He has added his name as co-sponsor of the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act (H.R. 366) that helps prohibit spectator support for animal fighting events. This bill helps close the loopholes that allow for such events to continue through knowing attendance and bringing a minor to such events.
To help add your representatives name as co-sponsor of the bill, send your message through the Humane Society of the United States.
