About OBPC

The OBPC is a statewide, educational, nonpartisan convention that is open to the public. The focus is threefold:

  • To serve as a forum for delegates to discuss issues and conditions, and to establish, through resolutions, the positions of the Black Community, collectively, on these issues and conditions affecting it;
  • To endorse candidates running for public offices in the upcoming Oregon Primary Election who are sensitive and responsive to the critical issues of the Black Community in Oregon; and
  • To engage Black American college students and other students as interns to learn and participate in political processes that would benefit themselves, their colleges, their communities and society-at-large.
