July 19, 2016 - Earlier this year, I told you that we were fighting three anti-immigrant ballot initiatives that were the work of the extremist group, Oregonians for Immigration Reform (OFIR,) and their allies. Today, I am happy to tell you that all three measures failed to qualify for the 2016 ballot.
However, our work is not over. OFIR has vowed to return next election cycle with their anti-immigrant agenda. Through their deep ties to white nationalist groups and funders, OFIR will continue to target immigrant families in Oregon.

Amanda used to be able to vote using her student ID card. But in South Carolina, student identification is no longer acceptable. Adopted in Georgia, Amanda’s name is different from the name on her birth certificate. Amanda has tried, unsuccessfully, to change the name on her birth certificate.
