OPS Advocacy Team

Whether you’re a seasoned legislative advocate or inspired to learn more, we invite OPS members to join our advocacy efforts at any level of involvement.

As an OPS Advocate, you’ll work alongside colleagues, OPS staff, and the OPS lobbyist to champion the child health & justice causes that matter most to you. From attending our monthly (Zoom) Advocacy Group meetings, joining the annual OPS Lobby Day, contacting your elected representatives, and publishing your opinions, OPS members influence health policy and legislation in Oregon.  To learn more, contact Joanna Peterson, OPS Communications Manager.


Supporting OPS's Policy and Legislative Agenda

Member advocates work with our community and national allies on a variety of health care, equity, social, education, and economic issues that impact children's health, their families, and their medical providers.
