|The Oregon Advocacy Commissions Office (OACO) was created to support the work of the Commissions on Asian and Pacific Islander, Black and Hispanic Affairs, and the Commission for Women, which serve as the liaisons between communities of color and women, and government entities. The OACO is responsible for administrative support to the Commissions as they strive for implementation and establishment of economic, social, legal and political equality for communities of color and women in Oregon. |
The OACO assists the commissions in monitoring existing programs and legislation designed to meet the needs of populations of color and women and helps in identifying and researching problem areas and issues affecting these communities. OACO works with the commissions to continually assess the issues and needs confronting communities of color and women across Oregon and identify programs, projects and activities which the OACO will undertake regarding those issues.
