EXPANDING & IMPROVING HEALTH CARE FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN

Improving Oregon’s Maternal Mortality Rate

The rates of maternal mortality have been increasing in this country over the past decades, to the point where the United States lags behind most other industrialized countries in maternal mortality rates. I was proud to support House Bill 4133, which establishes the Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Review Committee to study the causes of climbing maternal mortality rates and investigate solutions to foster better maternal care.

Reproductive Freedom - ProChoice Women's Health Care

I have an established record on reproductive freedom. I was a leader in the coalition to pass HB 3391, the Reproductive Health Equity Act, the most comprehensive reproductive health care policy in the nation.

Cover All Kids

All children deserve access to health coverage. Period.

That’s why I worked with a coalition to advocate for the 17,000 uninsured children in Oregon in 2017. This achievement, long fought for and long overdue, finally passed both chambers. Now, these children will be able to access the care they need to be healthy](http://pamplinmedia.com/pt/10-opinion/369098-251551-our-opinion-cover-all-kids-worth-praising).

HEALTH CARE

We must find a way to provide adequate health care to all Oregonians. Medical illness and debt is the leading cause of bankruptcy and missed work and school days. Until we can provide foundational health care for all, we cannot fulfill Oregon's economic potential.

EDUCATION

Full funding of our k-12 education system is a top priority for me. Too many of our students are not workforce-ready because we don't give them all the education they need. We have graduation and post-secondary education goals in place but our teachers and students can't be expected to achieve them without adequate resources.

ENVIRONMENT

We have already seen the devastation caused by global warming in various parts of our state. Protecting the climate is not only imperative to our economic prosperity and environmental sustainability, but also to our people and way of life as Oregonians.

Andrea Salinas

Meet Andrea

For more than 20 years, I have been working to protect and pass policies that help women and children, working people, seniors, and the environment. I have a proven record of bringing state elected leaders together to move a progressive agenda forward.

I'm ready to step up and lead - and to do it by bringing people along, leaving the door open, reaching out to lift others up, and bringing more chairs to the table. This is the type of leadership we need at our state Capitol, and I am asking for your continued support as Oregon's State Representative for House District 38.
