The Oregon Advocacy Commissions (OACs), leaders of underrepresented communities in Oregon, share their expertise and knowledge to inform equity in state policy. The OACs research issues, educate the public, and provide advice to state policy and decision makers, including the Governor, legislators, and state agency leadership. The OACs are continually looking for ways to improve the lives and livelihoods of all Oregonians, and encourage diverse leadership in state government.
The Oregon Advocacy Commissions Office (OACO) was established to support the statutory work of all four OACs:
- Oregon Commission on Asian & Pacific Islander Affairs (OCAPIA)
- Oregon Commission on Black Affairs (OCBA)
- Oregon Commission on Hispanic Affairs (OCHA)
- Oregon Commission for Women (OCFW)
