About United For Kids

United for Kids has one simple goal: to make Oregon the best place to be a kid. To do that, Oregon’s children need a strong and unified voice advocating for them. United for Kids connects and amplifies the collective voice of pro-child Oregonians and organizations to promote public policy change and shared investments that benefit children’s health, safety, economic security, and education.

Oregonians care deeply about the well-being of our children. Across our state, there is a widespread commitment to improve our future, starting with the lives of our children. United for Kids closes the gap between public concern for kids and meaningful support of pro-child policies in Oregon.
