- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I have a few questions! I am a 26 year old queer social worker who works with adults with developmental disabilities in portland, oregon.
1. "Each year an estimated 17,500 men, women, and children are trafficked into the U.S. for purposes of sexual and labor exploitation throughout our states, including Oregon." (Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans) -How would you focus on creating more services, shelters and rehabilitation for children and youth who are victims of the human trafficking happening in oregon?
2. With the recent suicides of gay youth in the nation, how would you address hate speech and discrimination towards the LGBTQ community in our government, military, schools and local communities? Do you see public officials as having a duty to address the violence and bullying that is happening in our schools?
