Our Revolution Mission

Our Revolution Southern Oregon Mission:

Our goal is to revitalize our democracy so that it works for all the people of our country. We support the election of progressive leaders, and we will work to enact progressive legislation to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families. We will provide forums to educate and to empower people to act locally to support progressive change.

Rev. March 20, 2017

Vision and goals:

Our Revolution is the Bernie Sanders legacy organization established by members of the Sanders campaign to continue the political revolution begun by Sanders.
The national Our Revolution organization preamble reads as follows:
“Our Revolution will reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the ‘political revolution.’ Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution will transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families.” ( https://ourrevolution.com/)
Our Revolution, Southern Oregon is dedicated to economic justice for everyone regardless of race, gender, class, social or cultural origin, religion, disability, lifestyle or circumstances. We welcome all organizations and individuals who embrace these values to join us in our revolutionary evolution.
Our primary aim is to find, recommend and assist qualified candidates who seek economic justice for working families and who promote the stances on issues stated in the Our Revolution platform. These issues include wealth inequality, a living wage, Medicare for all, immigration policy, racial justice, college tuition, and big money in politics, to name a few.
Our primary geographical focus is Jackson County; however, we will work in collaboration with other Our Revolution affiliates to affect change at the state and federal levels. ORSO addresses the failure of corporate media to cover the critical issues facing our country by informing and educating the public about the problems we face and our solutions to them. We seek to empower a new generation of progressive leaders by providing the leadership training and organizing tools they will need to transform our future.
We welcome your volunteer help in the following areas: communications, messaging and outreach, events, candidate recruitment and legislative advocacy. Please join us as we become the change we wish to see.

National Organization Our Revolution Mission:

Our Revolution will reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the “political revolution.” Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution will transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families.

Our Revolution has three intertwined goals: to revitalize American democracy, empower progressive leaders and elevate the political consciousness.

  • Revitalize American Democracy
  • Empower Progressive Leaders
  • Elevate Political Consciousness

 

Our Revolution will revitalize American democracy by unifying the millions of people who got involved over the course of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign in support of progressive causes. Our Revolution will give the people a major voice in the political system by activating supporters and engaging millions more Americans in the political process.

Our Revolution will empower the next generation of progressive leaders by inspiring and recruiting progressive candidates to run for offices across the entire spectrum of government. From school boards to congressional seats, a new generation of political leaders, dedicated to transforming America’s corrupt campaign finance system and rigged economy, will become involved. Our Revolution will provide leaders inspired by the “political revolution” with the unparalleled digital tools, organizing knowledge and grassroots support successfully utilized throughout Senator Sanders’ campaign.

The corporate media has largely failed to cover the issues critical to the future of our country. Our Revolution will educate the public about the most pressing issues confronting our nation and the bold solutions being offered. This effort will ensure that drowned out voices are heard and become an important part of the local, state and national dialogue.
