2018 Elections: Thank you for standing with our communities

Together we secured crucial victories for our state.

With a record state voter turnout, Oregonians voted to keep our communities safe this election. In defeating extreme and dangerous ballot measures like 105 and 106, Oregonians resoundingly said that we will not compromise our values of acceptance, fairness and equality for all.

By defeating M105, we affirmed that racial profiling is wrong and has no place in our state. By defeating M106, we stood behind women and nonbinary Oregonians in supporting their reproductive rights. By supporting measures 102 and 26-199, we removed barriers to affordable housing so our state can support more communities of color and low-income Oregonians.

Thank you to our amazing staff, volunteers and partners for working hard to secure these victories during this crucial election. And THANK YOU to all of the voters who took action with their ballots and stood for what was right.

Although we celebrate these victories today, the journey isn’t over.

There is still a long road ahead of us to secure equality for all Oregonians and Americans. Subscribe for future advocacy alerts here to be part of our critical work to reject attacks on immigrant communities in Oregon!

Thank you again for your dedication to our communities. Because of you, we can continue to positively transform the lives of Latinx youth, families and communities throughout our beautiful state.

You're Invited: Ollin Social Justice Film Series

We’re coming together to advocate for social justice through film and discussion, and we want YOU to join us.

Ollin: Social Justice Film Series aims to unite communities, begin important discussions about social justice, and advocate for the rights of everyone - all through film and community-led discussions. 

On January 23rd at 7:30pm, we will be showing Pan’s Labyrinth at the Hollywood Theatre, and Commissioner Nick Fish will join us in responding to the film's social justice themes while commenting on policy, advocacy, and leadership in our communities.

Pan’s Labyrinth is one of three films that Latino Network and The Hollywood Theatre will screen throughout the winter and spring:

  • January 23rd - Pan’s Labyrinth with Commissioner Nick Fish
  • March 13 - Salt of The Earth with Elected Official Diego Hernandez

In the Hollywood Theatre lobby before the film, Latino Network will have a table with opportunities to volunteer, donate and/or learn how to become involved in making a collective impact for the success of Latino youth and families. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
