Our Revolution is proud to endorse Susheela Jayapal for Congress in Oregon’s 3rd Congressional District, and we Bernie Sanders has joined us in supporting her in this race!

Susheela, a mother of two, has been an outspoken champion for reproductive rights, education, and economic justice.

Prior to entering elected office, she was a dedicated community advocate and volunteer, serving on numerous local boards, including Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette, Metropolitan Family Service, and All Hands Raised; and as an advocate with CASA for Children among others.

Susheela most recently served as the Multnomah County Commissioner, where she has been a fierce advocate for her work supporting survivors of domestic violence and sex trafficking as well as finding real solutions to the homelessness crisis.

Creating more affordable housing, long term rent assistance, behavioral health services, standing with workers to fight for a living wage and has increased support for immigrant and refugee communities.

In Congress, Susheela will continue to be a strong progressive voice, fighting for the health and safety of our community, championing abortion rights, taking on big polluters and fighting climate change, and standing up to election deniers to defend our democracy.

Thanks to the work of Our Revolution members and our progressive movement, we now have the largest Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) in history!

Endorsing Susheela Jayapal and helping to get her elected in Oregon’s 3rd Congressional District is an opportunity to make our progressive voting bloc in the U.S. House even stronger.
