To defend the rights of vulnerable children and families from diverse backgrounds, including those in foster care, recovering from trauma, who are poor and low income, experiencing abuse and neglect, and living with disabilities.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, Youth, Rights & Justice directly protected more than 1,400 children or parents in the courts and schools. They have directly helped over 25,000 vulnerable children or parents since 1975. Additionally, through championing laws and systems reforms, YR&J has impacted the lives of more than 500,000 vulnerable children and parents throughout Oregon.
“Every child in Oregon deserves to have hope and justice. Youth, Rights & Justice provides both.”
—Tina Kotek, Oregon House speaker
