Mom. Civil Rights Attorney. Fighter.

Growing up poor in rural Oregon, Dufur and The Dalles, opportunity seemed out of reach for Shemia. Oregon’s public schools changed that and gave her a path. Since then, Shemia has worked every day to ensure all Oregonians have that same opportunity. As State Representative and Senator, Shemia has: 

  • Increased investment in our public schools
  • Raised wages and passed paid family leave
  • Made housing and healthcare more affordable
  • Expanded voting rights.

As your Secretary of State, Shemia will protect the integrity of: 

  • Our elections ensure every vote counts, every voter has faith that it does, and elected leaders show up for work and honor your votes. 
  • Our public records, closing the “secret ballot” loophole in Salem and making the government transparent and accountable.
  • Our public investments, using audits to ensure public services serve marginalized communities and mitigate climate change’s impact.
