After two years of virtual gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Oregon Democrats, following public safety guidelines, gathered in-person for the first time since 2019 at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg this past weekend. In addition to our State Central Committee (SCC) meeting, attendees participated in trainings and caucus meetings, while enjoying a chance to get together and discuss the issues most important to Oregonians.

At the meeting, State Party Chair Carla “KC” Hanson reminded the delegates: “Everything we do as Democrats in the context of building democracy must be measured in terms of how our work will make lives better for the people – all the people – of Oregon.”

“It was wonderful to be together again,” said Hanson afterwards. “We’ve got vital work to do this year to elect a new Governor, elect Senator Wyden and Democrats to our congressional seats, and elect a new Labor Commissioner, all while maintaining and building our majorities in the state legislature. I deeply appreciate the Democrats from every corner of the state who made their way to Roseburg. This was the perfect way to get the ball rolling in a critical election year.”

During the SCC business meeting, delegates passed six resolutions, which were as follows. (Full text of each resolution can be found by clicking on the links below.):
