POP Meeting Reminder: Tues, Feb 25

REMINDER - It's Monday night and the meeting is tomorrow. The state climate bill is the big agenda item. Republicans have walked off their jobs and again and we have to convince them to come back or hold them accountable. We may have some local actions to respond to too! The Wasco County Commission has scheduled a special session for this Thursday at 3pm to discuss the climate bill. We will discuss if we need to do anything about this. The meeting was scheduled for 6pm at Route 30 but I just realized that the next Democratic debate is from 5-7pm our time.

Rapid Response Needed for Another Republican Walkout

The Republican State Senators have done it again. They literally walked off the job because they have not gotten their way. And now it's time for us to respond. Oregon Indivisible groups have put together a rapid response toolkit for this unacceptable action. Please, click "Read More" to download the attached document with background info and script ideas, and send an email or make a phone call or both. We can't let them get away with this again. Our state senator, Lynn Findley, is one of the truants.

Climate bill update; next POP Meeting (Tues 2/25 6pm)

Hello POPers,

Hearings galore continue at the capital as Republicans continue delaying tactics. We need all of you to send email testimony to hrules.exhibits@oregonlegislature.gov . Resending comments sent to other committees in the past is okay. Please keep it nice and tie it to something personal. Tie your comments to actual impacts, personal stories, and your being a resident of Wasco County.

Urgent Need: Emails for Climate Bill

We urgently need emails to the Senate Comm on Environment and Resources: senr.exhibits@oregonlegislature.gov

You can send multiple times on different days. Say something brief about what concerns you about climate change. There is a hearing today but another on Saturday, so the deadline for this is Feb. 8! PLease click on the read more link for more details if you want them.

LETTERS to VOTERS with Swing Left

If you’re feeling frustrated by Republicans’ unapologetic dismissal of the Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump, it’s time to work out some of that frustration. Swing Left, a national progressive group, has initiated a massive letters-to-voters campaign that we can all help with.

There are 2 nearby letter writing parties coming up:
Monday Feb 3 at the White Salmon Public library at 6:30-8:30pm
Wednesday Feb 12 from 9:30-11:30am at Dog River Cafe in Hood River at 411 Oak St
