Take Action

Honor the Promise of Oregon through advocacy.

Oregon students deserve revenue reform in 2019. If you agree, join OSBA’s efforts for revenue reform and cost containment as we head into the 2019 legislative session. Some practical ideas for getting involved are outlined below. For additional resources and ways to be involved, click here.

OSBA will host a series of town halls January-March 2019 to recruit and mobilize members of the public to advocate for sufficient, stable funding for Oregon schools. The town halls will show “A Time to Listen,” a potent documentary on Oregon’s chronic education funding problem and the legislative drive for a solution. Area legislators and local school board members will then moderate discussions on education and answer questions from the audience. At the conclusion, the OSBA team will make a call to action for people to sign up for the campaign via text message and to keep up to date about how they can help ensure students get the adequate and stable school funding that has been lacking for so many years.
