Janet is an intelligent organizer who advocates for this community and creates solutions to support equity. She breaks down barriers and uses her voice to support unheard individuals. I feel proud and excited to endorse Janet for district 53.
Rita Schenkelberg - Bend
My experience of Janet consistently reinforces that she is fearless, brilliant, and driven by what is possible. As Central Oregon continues to grow, we need greater representation and progressive leadership based in lived experience and collective activism. She understands the difficulties of navigating the systems for affordable housing in Central Oregon. She is a fierce advocate for restorative justice practices, comprehensive and inclusive sexual education, and anti-racist education as a Bend La Pine School District Board member. Janet’s worldview is impressively broad and well-informed. Her aim is always towards equity. I am honored to endorse Janet Sarai Llerandi for House District 53.
