Julia gives staff and students the best opportunity for change at Portland City Hall. She provides strong leadership around the many problems that compound their daily lives, such as transportation, housing affordability, and climate protections. Change requires new ideas, new faces and fresh outlooks to resolve these issues. – Jaime Rodriguez, VP of Political Action for Portland Community College Federation of Faculty and Academic Professionals (AFT Local 2277)

Julia is the only candidate talking about changing Portland’s unrepresentative form of government, which stems from Jim Crow policies. She’s not afraid to call out injustice wherever she sees it, and do what it takes to fight for the people. Julia is a breath of fresh air. She is exactly what this city needs. – A.L. Skipper Osborne, Former President, Portland NAACP & Founder, Truth and Justice for All

Julia Degraw is a smart, scrappy, and strategic organizer who lead the fight to kick Nestle out of the Gorge and won. She knows how to build coalitions and bring together community power to deliver results – and her values are uncompromised – she will always put the interests of people over corporate profits. Julia is exactly the type of person we need more of in government. I enthusiastically endorse Julia Degraw for Portland City Council. – Wenonah Hauter, Founder & Executive Director, Food and Water Watch & Food and Water Action

Julia’s vision for transforming City Council is truly inspiring, we believe it has the potential to really change how politics is done in Portland. Julia combines passion and experience, she has a track record of effective leadership, and she will be a formidable challenger to Nick Fish and to entrenched business interests. – Bernie PDX / Our Revolution Portland

I support Julia DeGraw for City Council because she is committed to a smart program for a more democratic, inclusive and sustainable Portland through district elections, affordable housing for all, living wage jobs and environmental justice. – Mary C. King, Professor of Economics Emerita, Portland State University 

Julia brings integrity to our City Council at a time when we need action, not more rhetoric. Portland Gray Panthers supports Julia over incumbent Nick Fish because she will do a better job advocating for low-income households and for more affordable housing. Additionally, Julia isn’t afraid to take on corporate interests when they threaten public resources. We need her voice in City Hall. – Lew Church, Portland Gray Panthers

As Senior Northwest Organizer of the consumer protection group Food & Water Watch, Julia DeGraw has worked tirelessly, both in the streets and through local and state government, to stand up to polluters, to conserve our precious resources, and to fight for better health and equality for all in our region.
