Our mission

Communities of Color for a Just Oregon, or Color PAC, and its partners recruit, train, elect, and support progressive champions of color for state and local office in Oregon. 



  • Candidates & elected leaders should reflect the communities they serve, and be rooted in those very communities with close ties and trusted relationships.

  • Candidates & elected leaders should be unabashed in challenging the many forms of oppression and advancing justice with and across communities.

  • Electoral work should be in partnership with and across formal and informal community-based networks to bring about the change they seek while building collective power and community cohesion
