Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon is committed to a vision of the world in which there is no suffering, injustice, violence or exploitation. We have faith that such a world is not only possible but is our responsibility to help bring into being. EMO advocates in communities statewide to create systems, institutions and public policies that ensure a life of possibility for all Oregonians. EMO's current public policy priorities include policies concerning hunger, poverty, affordable housing, work supports such as child care tax credit, farmworker needs, labor's right to organize, health care, the death penalty, campaign finance reform, discrimination, and separation of church and state.
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Portland releases all public policy statements through the Oregon Catholic Conference. For more information about the Oregon Catholic Conference priorities, call (503) 234-5334.
