MAY DAY 2013: Immigrant Spring March & Rally for ONE Oregon from Causa Oregon on Vimeo.
In an historic step toward humane policy reform, the Senate “Gang of 8” introduced their immigration reform bill.
“Today I signed into law a bill that not only improves our public safety, but helps Oregonians integrate into and contribute to our society and economy.News Coverage:
Senate Bill 833 has straightforward goal: to improve traffic safety by reducing the number of unlicensed and uninsured motorists on Oregon roads. With this bill, all Oregonians can take a driver’s exam, get a license, get car insurance, and drive safely to and from work or school, church or the store.
This bill is motivated by a larger vision – one where all Oregonians deserve and get their shot at the American dream. One where we are committed in our policymaking and in our daily lives to equity and opportunity for all. Where we are creating secure jobs with upward income mobility, and supporting safe, secure communities where people have a sense of common purpose and commitment to one another.
More than 235 years after our country’s founding, the idea of pursuing a more prosperous future still rings true and still gives us hope. It promises us that if we work hard, we can build a better life for ourselves and our families. It promises that our children will be better off than we were, and their kids better off yet. It promises us equal opportunity to succeed, no matter what language we speak at home.
Today we are here to keep those promises.
We are celebrating the promise of a better future, for every Oregonian. And we are celebrating that our democracy is made stronger – in fact, our democracy is made possible – because we share that belief in the American Dream and are working together to achieve it.”
