Social Justice Focus Speaker: Alejandro Queral
Examining Economic Inequality is our Social Justice Focus for this church year and Alejandro Queral, Executive Director of the Oregon Center for Public Policy (OCPP) will join us as our third outside speaker on this topic and will share with us about the work of the OCPP.
The Oregon Center for Public Policy (OCPP) is a nonprofit, independent think tank based in Portland, Oregon. For over 20 years, OCPP has been a leader in fighting to ensure all Oregonians have an opportunity to thrive. This requires significant investments in public structures such as education, health, and housing, paid for with an adequate, fair, and progressive tax system, which asks for more from those who have the most. We achieve these policy outcomes by developing research and analysis, building coalitions, and encouraging policymakers to make decisions that are in the best interest of their constituents.
Alejandro leads the Center, providing strategic direction and ensuring the Center’s sustainability and adherence to its mission. He brings more than 20 years of policy advocacy and nonprofit leadership experience in public health, human rights and environmental policy, as well as a seven-year stint in the philanthropic sector. Alejandro holds advanced degrees in ecology and law.
Our monthly special collection will happen on this Sunday for the Oregon Center for Public Policy.
