The Oregon Advocacy Commissions Office (OACO) was established to support the statutory work of the Oregon Commissions on:
- Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs (OCAPIA)
- Black Affairs (OCBA)
- Hispanic Affairs (OCHA)
- Oregon Commission for Women (OCFW)
The Oregon Advocacy Commissions (OACs) bring the voice and Equity Lens of underrepresented communities statewide to the policy table. The OACs achieve this by researching issues, informing, providing advice for state policy makers and decision makers, including the Governor, legislators, and departmental leadership, on ways to improve the success of all Oregonians, and growing diverse leadership into state government.
