Audiencia en Salem el 27 de Febrero: Aqui estamos, y no nos vamos!

Ahora, más que nunca, los inmigrantes necesitan sentirse seguros en cada comunidad.

Por eso, necesitamos que Salem, la capital estatal, se una a la lista de ciudades en Oregon que ya han hecho un compromiso con los valores de  inclusividad, respeto y dignidad para todos. Sin embargo, necesitamos su ayuda para que esto suceda. 


Únase con nosotros en la próxima audiencia del Ayuntamiento de Salem para exigir a nuestros miembros del Consejo que aprueben una Resolución de Inclusividad. Debemos asegurémonos de que la Ciudad de Salem y la Policía de Salem no estén colaborando con el Servicio de Inmigración y Aduanas de Estados Unidos (ICE).


¡Es tiempo de tomar acción y  llenar la sala para  asegurar que nuestras voces sean escuchadas!


En solidaridad,


Cristina Marquez, Coordinadora de Abogacia y Educacion Civica

Gobernadora Brown defiende inmigrantes y refugiados

Causa aplaude las acciones de la gobernadora Kate Brown para defender los derechos civiles y humanos de los inmigrantes y refugiados de Oregon.

Hoy, la Gobernadora Kate Brown actuó para fortalecer la ley de Oregon para mejor proteger los derechos de los habitantes de Oregon y pidió a la Procuradora General Ellen Rosenblum que tome acciones legales para oponerse a los recientes anuncios políticos de inmigración por el gobierno federal.

La Gobernadora Brown emitió una orden ejecutiva que:
  1. Requiere que las agencias estatales no discriminen en base del estatus migratorio.
  2. Amplia la ley de Oregon de 30 años, que prohíbe a las agencias de ley a tratar personas indocumentadas en Oregon como criminales. Ahora, todas las agencias estatales no solo las de orden público, deben seguir esta regla.
  3.  Prohíbe que las agencias estatales participen en la creación de un “registro” para identificar a las personas basadas en la religión.
  4.  Instruye a los empleados estatales a realizar tareas cotidianas conscientes de la posición acogedora e inclusiva de Oregon hacia todos, incluidos los inmigrantes y refugiados.

Estas acciones son una fuerte declaración de apoyo a las familias de refugiados e inmigrantes en Oregon. Sus acciones y compromiso a nuestras comunidades demuestran que nuestro estado continuará luchando por la justicia ante la odiosa agenda de Trump.

Los ataques contra los inmigrantes y refugiados de parte de la administración Trump, no reflejan los valores de Oregon. Le damos las gracias a la Gobernadora Brown por oponerse al odio. Esperamos trabajar con la Gobernadora y otros líderes para resistir la agenda de Trump.

¡Por favor, únase con Causa para agradecerle a la Gobernadora Brown por sus acciones en defensa de nuestras comunidades llamando a su oficina al (503) 378-4582 hoy mismo!

Causa Staff Transitions


Letter to Community from Yanely Rivas, Causa Coalition Coordinator 

Dear Causa supporters and community members,

Four months after the defeat of Measure 88 (Oregon driver card), organizations from across the state quickly formed a loose coalition to respond to anti-immigrant petitions filed by the extremist nativist group, Oregonians for Immigration Reform (OFIR), and their allies. United by our shared values around immigrant and racial justice, the coalition was determined to defeat all anti-immigrant proposals that aimed to undermine the wellbeing of thousands of immigrants and their families in our state.  

Inspired by the opportunity to help weave diverse communities together on the principle of respect, understanding, and the power of unity, I joined Causa as the Coalition Coordinator a year ago. During this time, the One Oregon Coalition has grown from 20 to 65 diverse partners that include labor, faith, environmental, reproductive health, Latinx, Asian Pacific Islander, Black, immigrant and refugee rights, rural, urban, LGBTQ, and economic justice organizations. Collectively, we were able to defeat all anti-immigrant proposals from qualifying onto Oregon’s 2016 ballot, engaged our respective bases around anti-immigrant threats through the “United Against Hate” campaign, worked with Latinx organizations to build leadership capacity, built relationships with groups that historically have not worked within the immigrant rights movement, and launched our website (OneOregon.org)!

As a first generation Xicana daughter to migrant parents from Mexico, it’s been an honor working with Causa and the One Oregon coalition to defend our immigrant and refugee communities. Despite the heightened extremist attacks towards low-income, racialized, and gendered communities, I truly believe we are living in a period with extraordinary potential for positive change. I know we, as traditionally marginalized communities, Somos Luchadores, we are fighters. Luchando a cada amanecer bajo un nuevo sol y soñando con esperanza por las noches negras. Our resilience is what gives me faith that we will persist. We will protect. We will win.

This is just the beginning for our coalition. With that said, I’m beyond excited to introduce Causa’s and One Oregon’s new Coalition Coordinator. I have complete faith in Joel Iboa’s ability, commitment, and passion to carry and cultivate this work forward with you all.

¡La Lucha sigue!
In solidarity,
Yanely Rivas


While we’ll miss Yanely, we are glad to have Joel Iboa join us next month as Coalition Coordinator.

Joel is a son of immigrants from Zacatecas, Mexico and was born and raised in Eugene. He majored in sociology with a concentration in crime and delinquency from the University of Oregon. Honing his skills in MEChA and at CAER, Joel entered the statewide environmental justice movement as the Environmental Justice and Community Outreach Manager for Beyond Toxics advocating for Oregonians of color with contaminated air and water in their communities. He has championed increased protections for farm and forestry workers who are subject to poor working conditions and chemical exposure. Joel serves as a Human Rights Commissioner for the City of Eugene and as the youngest appointed Member for the Governors Environmental Justice Task Force. He brings a deep desire to a shine a light on all the threats posed to immigrants in Oregon, especially those lurking in the shadows
