  • lobbying during Oregon’s legislative sessions to ensure that new laws support these goals
  • working closely with Oregon’s state administrative agencies to pursue remedies or approaches that protect the rights of eligible people with disabilities
  • serving on Advisory Committees for public agencies to improve policies and procedures
  • partnering with other community groups to increase safety and supports for people with disabilities
