Amanda and Dobby at Beaverton City Park during Beaverton's 1st Pride Celebration

Meet Amanda Siebe

Amanda was raised in Beaverton, Oregon where she lived with her parents and three siblings. She attended Jesuit High School in Portland, Oregon where she was a recipient of the President's Award for Community Service. After high school, Amanda attended Western Oregon University. She studied International Relations, Community Organizing, and Spanish. In 2005, she studied Spanish and Immigration at La Universidad Latina De America in Morelia, Mexico. Amanda was awarded Western Oregon University's Saul Alinsky Community Organizing Award in 2009 for her work with the Monmouth-Independence Tenants Union. Amanda was also a volunteer for both the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts, as well as a volunteer firefighter and EMT-Basic. In 2012, Amanda was diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), following a work-related injury. Since her diagnosis, she has been a relentless advocate for Chronic Pain and Disability Rights.


Amanda has dedicated her life to improving her community and has fought to teach her son, Keagan, the same. She has marched with Black Lives Matter and for Immigrant Rights, stood with ANTIFA against the Proud Boys, and traveled to Standing Rock to fight with the Water Protectors against the Dakota Access Pipeline. In 2016, she was the recipient of the WEGO Health Advocate Rookie of the Year Award. She has dedicated her life to fighting to give voice to those without one and teaching the next generation demand more from our government. For her, there’s no battle too big or fight too hard to take on. With the help of her family, friends, and loyal service dog, Dobby, she's determined to take the fight for equality and justice to the United States House of Representatives for Oregon's 1st District.
