CASCADE POLICY INSTITUTE

Promoting opportunity for Oregonians

Cascade Policy Institute brings clarity on state and local issues in Oregon, which are often misunderstood through media or party rhetoric. Cascade is not affiliated with any political party or organization. As a nonpartisan, nonprofit research and education organization, Cascade encourages exploration and debate on questions of policy and the role of government in a free society.

Cascade’s mission is to develop and promote public policy alternatives that foster individual liberty, personal responsibility and economic opportunity. Cascade promotes property rights, incentives, markets and decentralized decision-making.

Cascade advances these values by sharing its research with the public, the media, and state and local lawmakers through publications, educational programs, community forums and special events.
