Who We Are

The Oregon Center for Christian Voices advocates for public policies and laws in Oregon that we believe reflect God’s desire for a government structure that promotes the well-being of all, and particularly the marginalized in our society. We believe Christians are called to advocate for those whose voices are not always heard when legislation and policies are being considered. We seek to bring people of faith together to speak from our spiritual and moral values about issues such as poverty, economic fairness,health care, and stewardship for the environment.

Scripture tells us a society will be judged by how well the most marginalized are doing. OCCV is non-partisan, basing our advocacy for government policies and laws on a scriptural mandate, rather than political ideology. Through education, dialogue, partnering organizations, and by bringing the voices of faith to the legislative process in our Capitol, we seek to promote the kingdom of God here on earth.
