Family Forward Oregon

We  believe that our economy can and must do more to support working families. We need paid sick days, paid family leave, workplace flexibility, and quality and affordable child care, and more. These policies are good for families, good for business, and good for Oregon.

Location: Portland, OR

Organization mission statement: Our mission is to create a family-forward Oregon where all families can be economically secure and have the time it takes to care for a family. Today, too many families are forced to sacrifice one or the other. But we’re working hard to change that by engaging and partnering with parents, employers and policy-makers to create innovative, forward-thinking approaches to work and family.

This organization or cause is a 501(c)3 non-profit: Yes

What groups or causes does your organization serve?: Economic, gender, and racial justice. We're a policy advocacy organization that advocates and organizes women, with a focus on issues like paid family and medical leave, paid sick days, and affordable childcare.

Project description: We're looking to update our websites and potentially combine our familyforwardoregon.org and familyforwardaction.org websites into one (or making the FFO website static and the FFA website where we drive traffic to). We're hoping to make our website more visually pleasing with a simple, clean, and minimalist aesthetic.

Project needs: website design, website development

Project Timeline: ASAP

How will this creative work help you overcome challenges or meet specific goals?: Our organization is going through a major shift in our mission and messaging, all based on our decision to shift our community organizing strategies. Updating and re-designing our websites will help us further meet our mission and goals of communicating our new organizational shift to support and advocate with a deeper racial and gender justice analysis.
