Welcome to Oregon SSN


Oregon SSN Authors Report on Child Care Needs

About the chapter

The Oregon SSN chapter launched in March 2019 with a coalition of multidisciplinary scholars and researchers from leading advocacy organizations. Oregonians have a rich history of community, labor and civic engagement and that spirit is reflected in the SSN Chapter. Currently our areas of focus include labor standards policy and enforcement, family policy, poverty, inequality, education and expanded opportunities for women, people of color and members of low-income households.
