Diego Hernandez, Openly Agnostic Candidate Running for Oregon State House, Has Won

Diego Hernandez, an openly Agnostic candidate running for the Oregon State House in District 47, has won his race.



This is Hernandez’s biography, as offered by the Freethought Equality Fund, which endorsed him earlier this year:

Diego Hernandez is seeking election to Oregon’s 47th State House District. Hernandez, who was raised Catholic, is now an agnostic. He is a strong supporter of the separation of church and state and believes that public policy should be “subject to argument, and amenable to reason.” He is dedicated to supporting education, community safety, and an economy that supports working families and small businesses. He received a BA in Political Science and Ethnic Studies at the University of Oregon and a Masters in Social Work at Portland State University. He has worked as a middle and high school teacher and was elected to the school board. Hernandez is currently the Co-Executive Director of Momentum Alliance, a nonprofit that develops young civic leaders. This is an open seat with the incumbent running for another elective office.

Congratulations to Hernandez for stepping up and winning the race!
