Policy Team Members

Andrea Paluso

Andrea is a co-founder and director of Family Forward Oregon and The Mother PAC. Both organizations are working to build a family-friendly Oregon, one that supports family caregiving, economic prosperity, social sustainability and equity. As a professional and a mother of two young children, Andrea has been struck by the widening gap between contemporary American families and the policies designed to support them. Andrea believes a new vision for Oregon is possible and that developing more family-supportive workplaces and communities is an essential part of the way forward.
