Oregon's faith communities have a rich history of advocating for non-violence, and policies that respect the sanctity of all human life. The organizations listed below have expressed the commitment of their leadership and congregations to work towards common-sense gun violence prevention policies in Oregon. While not every organization listed below is in active support of all Oregon Alliance legislative efforts, these groups share in our belief that education and advocacy can reduce the tragedy of gun violence in Oregon and beyond.
