"Prior to the Wayne Morse Scholars program, I believed that I had zero agency in changing systemic inequities. But after being surrounded by so many driven and passionate people, I realized that I can bring my voice and whole identity to every space that I exist. The past few years have consisted of learning to navigate new spaces, both professionally and in activism, but I have developed the confidence to bring a lens of equity to every conversation/decision." —Blair Mariko Toy '18, Wayne Morse Scholar alum

Celebrate the Wayne Morse Center's 20th anniversary with a donation that will help sustain it for years to come!

 

Since it was founded, the Center has been a home to hundreds of University of Oregon undergraduate, graduate, and law students through its programs. Every year it financially and logistically supports UO faculty and students as well as community and campus groups.

Through its many events, the Wayne Morse Center serves as a bridge that brings the campus together with the wider community to promote civic engagement, inclusive democracy, and justice. The Center trains future public leaders to reach beyond partisan labels and conflicts to encourage fresh thinking and effective solutions to public problems. It carries on the fighting spirit and political independence of Oregon’s Senator Wayne Morse by promoting education and research to advance justice and democracy.

Whether you've attended Wayne Morse Center events, been involved in its programs, or simply believe in its mission, we hope you'll join with us to support and celebrate an organization that's a great benefit to our community and our state. 

A donation in any amount makes you part of the Wayne Morse Circle and ensures that the Wayne Morse Center continues to promote education and research to advance justice and democracy. All new Circle members will receive a canvas tote bag with a graphic of a Wayne Morse campaign button.
