Government Relations

Picture this: Oregon is a state that values education and the front-line workers who make it possible. With full funding, our schools and education programs are the best in the country. Dedicated, trained and knowledgeable professionals support student learning from early childhood through elementary, middle and high school and even college. Whether they work with students or behind the scenes, these professionals are treated with respect and paid a living wage.

This is OSEA’s vision for Oregon. Government relations is how we make it a reality. OSEA is a nonpartisan organization. We raise our collective voice for the education and labor issues that impact our members.
