Oregonians increasingly favor candidates and elected officials who are committed to public safety policies that decrease our reliance on incarceration, advance equitable treatment, and increase community investments in alternative sentencing, community corrections, addiction treatment, and victim services.
That is why the Safety and Justice PAC is working hard to support state and local candidates whose vision and values are in line with these priorities.
As a result, communities across Oregon have benefitted from local programs that keep families together, investments in prevention, and resources that crime survivors need to heal. We’re demonstrating that public safety reform policies can achieve accountability and ensure community safety without an over-reliance on prisons.
We’re on the right track, but there’s more to do.
