DPO Caucuses

Veterans Caucus

The Democratic Party of Oregon Veterans and Military Family Member Caucus represents and advocates for the interest of Veterans and their family members in Oregon. If you are a democrat living in Oregon and are a veteran, family member of a veteran, or an ally you’re welcome to join us. 
Our goals are:
  • Ensure the interests and concerns of Veterans and military family members are considered and reflected in legislation in Oregon and nationally.
  • Increase and support Veteran and military family member participation and representation at all levels of government.
  • Participate in the policy decisions and the outreach programs of the DPO to maximize support of the Democratic Party and its endorsed candidates. 
  • Advance equal rights for all people.
Any Democrat registered to vote in the State of Oregon may join. If you’re interested, join us!
