We are mothers. Oregon mothers. We envision a better Oregon with strong, pro-family public policies. And we’re fighting for it. Because we know from experience how dated and inadequate our current system is for families–especially for mothers.
How We Got Started
In the spring of 2010, a group of Oregon mothers came together to start The Mother PAC because of a shared concern that mothers – and the issues that matter to them – are being overlooked by those elected to represent us. There aren’t many mothers in elected office, and due to the various constraints on our time, it can be challenging for us to develop our political voice.
So we started a political action committee (PAC) to raise awareness about the public policy issues that matter to families and to help elect candidates for public office who will champion the kinds of policies mothers and families need.
The beauty of a PAC is that we pool our resources to send a message to legislators from mothers about mothers. When candidates get money from The Mother PAC, they’ll know our vision, and getting our support means working with us to turn our vision into a reality for *all* Oregon’s mothers.
