Partnership for Safety and Justice 2024 Legislative Priorities: Support services, not arrests. Oppose HB 4002.

Partnership for Safety and Justice is leading the way to protect Oregon from returning to the War on Drugs. Addiction is a health care issue, not a crime. Handcuffs and arrests didn’t work for 50 years, and they won’t work now.

Oregon Legislature is working to pass HB 4002, which would criminalize people suffering from drug addiction and homelessness. People who are suffering will be arrested and jailed when what they actually need is a home, help, and healing.

We need solutions like peer outreach workers to help people get connected to the services and housing needed for healing. 

Take action now: Support services, not arrests. Oppose HB 4002.
