Our Legislative Work

Partnership for Safety and Justice strives to ensure Oregon’s approach to public safety is based on the principles of safety, prevention, accountability, healing, rehabilitation, and justice. To advance those goals, we engage in direct advocacy with policymakers at the Oregon Legislature for a smarter, more effective public safety system that invests in addiction and mental health treatment, victim and re-entry services, and community corrections.
