The ad, featuring Latinx Oregonians, highlights how law enforcement are just some of the community leaders who oppose Measure 105. Measure 105 would make people less likely to call for medical help, which puts public health at risk. It violates Oregon values, of welcoming others. It would lead to people being treated differently because of the color of their skin.  

“I shouldn’t be seen as the enemy,” says Ruben Arellano, a firefighter from Tigard. “Oregon is better than Measure 105.”

The 30-second spot, “Vote No,” is running on TV, and it represents a new message for the campaign, highlighting voices of people who could be impacted by the passage of Measure 105. The previous two ads featured law enforcement leaders explaining why Measure 105 would be bad for public safety because it erodes trust with law enforcement.

Measure 105 would throw out Oregon’s anti-racial profiling law. The law passed more than 31-years ago with near unanimous, bipartisan support.
