Jewish Groups and Programs
QuackPac is a bipartisan group of students at the University of Oregon aiming to strengthen Israel's ties with the United States and is filled with students who love Israel and care about Israel as a political ally for the United States. Students are Jewish, non-Jewish, involved in College Democrats and College Republicans, involved in campus politics and a variety of majors.
QuackPac has written and passed a resolution through the University of Oregon's student senate condemning nuclear Iran and is now working on passing that resolution through the state of Oregon with Val Hoyle (Oregon House majority leader) as its bill sponsor. QuackPac also helps students attend AIPAC trainings such as Saban leadership seminars and its annual policy conference in March. QuackPac also volunteers on Oregon political campaigns and is especially involved in University campaigns.
