Oregon Black Political Convention Purpose
The purpose of this convention is twofold. One is 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. The other is to endorse candidates running for public offices during the Primary Election, who are sensitive and responsive to the issues and conditions of Blacks in Oregon.
The Oregon Black Political Convention (OBPC) is a nonpartisan convention. It is held during the spring of election years and is hosted by the Oregon Assembly for Black Affairs (OABA) through its Political Action Committee. The convention is statewide in its focus.
OBPC is open to the public. Any individual or organization addressing the concerns of Blacks in Oregon may be a delegate to the convention. The business of the convention is carried out by the delegates. The actions and endorsements of the Oregon Black Political Convention are the positions of the convention and not those of the Oregon Assembly For Black Affairs (OABA).
OBPC Campaign Support Committee
The OBPC Campaign Support Committee (CSC) is a subsidiary and political arm of the Oregon Black Political Convention. The purpose of this committee is to raise and distribute campaign funds to candidates endorsed by the Oregon Black Political Convention that is hosted by the Political Action Committee of the Oregon Assembly for Black Affairs (OABA). Its decisions shall be independent of OABA.
