We were recently selected as one of 150 organizations that are inspiring social change by Willamette Week’s Give!Guide in their campaign to excite new and younger donors to support impactful groups in our region.
We Deserve Better (2013)
The Safe Kids, Safe Communities campaign launched in 2013 to advocate that youth be treated more fairly in Oregon’s criminal justice system.
