“Khanh’s leadership, vision, and drive is exactly what we need in this time of crisis. She’ll promote a COVID-19 recovery that builds a just economy with more healthcare, housing, green jobs, childcare support, and quality education.”

Representative Alissa Keny-Guyer, HD 46

In this time of crisis, we can’t go back to normal. We need to rebuild stronger. Imagine an Oregon where no Oregonian fears going to the hospital because it will bankrupt them. Imagine a just Covid recovery where every worker has a living-wage job and where every family has access to affordable and energy-efficient housing.

As your Representative, I will fight for:    

Economic Justice

  • Healthcare for all  
  • Stopping residential and commercial evictions
  • Universal childcare
  • Full funding for schools, colleges and trades
  • Support for small businesses as we recover from the pandemic

Oregon Green New Deal 

  • Community-controlled 100% renewable energy
  • Strong regulations for clean air 
  • Clean water for all Oregonians 
  • Investments towards public transit, walking, and biking
  • Family-wage jobs and job training for new careers

Healthy Democracy

  • Campaign finance limits and transparency
  • Pro-voter reforms like same-day registration
  • Directing money away from prisons towards investments in schools, mental health, and treatment programs
