About Us

 

Message from EFO's Executive Director, Angela Martin

Fair play. It’s a concept we all learned in school. Unfortunately, fair play hasn’t been the guiding principle for the credit card companies that hand us a 30 page contract filled with tricks and traps, or the payday lenders who make big profits charging low-wage workers 500% interest for a short term advance.

And, fair play certainly wasn’t considered when Wall Street banks made record profits by selling toxic loans, then took billions in taxpayer money to bail themselves out — all while turning their backs on homeowners who watched as their home values plummeted and their jobs disappeared. Economic Fairness Oregon fights to protect all the hardworking Oregonians who play by the rules. Our goal is to restore a financial system built to work for the people, not against them.

I hope you'll add your voice to the fight. Our strenght doesn't come from a big check book it comes from the fact that thousands of Oregon consumers are ready for change and willing to join us. I invite you to learn more about how you can add your voice to the mix.
