Working together means positive change for kids
2020 Children’s Agenda
A united voice for Oregon children
Making Oregon a place where all children can thrive requires ensuring an even playing field for children to reach their full potential. The Children’s Agenda is a roadmap of solutions for state legislators to address the most pressing problems facing children and families.Through the Children’s Agenda, we bring together a community of advocates, coalitions, and over 100 partner organizations to champion state legislative policies and shared investments that benefit children’s health, safety, economic security, and education. By presenting structural ways we can protect and improve the lives of Oregon’s 860,000 kids, the Children’s Agenda not only urges policymakers to action, but helps all of us make Oregon the best place to be a kid.
A community of advocates
Over 100 partners with expertise in child and family issues bring a diversity of knowledge, perspectives, and priorities to inform the policies we pursue and the strategies we employ. Our partners harness the power of collective action to spur meaningful change for our children when they join forces for the Children’s Agenda. Click here for a full list of our partners.
Debate for Oregon’s Future
On October 2, 2018, Oregon’s candidates for governor answered questions from 15 youth in a first-of-its-kind gubernatorial debate. Presented by Children First for Oregon, KOIN, and Pamplin Media, the Debate for Oregon’s Future gave students from across the state an opportunity to hold the candidates accountable for the issues that matter most to them.
