Next POP meeting June 27th, 6PM, Route 30: Immigration Speaker

Next POP meeting is this coming Tuesday, June 27th, 6PM at Route 30. MariRuth Petzing, an attorney with Immigration Counseling Services (ICS) in Hood River will be our speaker. Her talk is entitled Immigration 101 and there will be lots of opportunities to ask her our questions. Let's pack the house with POPers, friends and neighbors so we can spread the word about what is and is not true regarding local immigration issues!!


Just a reminder that tomorrow night (Monday, June 19, 5-6 PM) is POP's night to rally at NORCOR. I will be at a board meeting for Fire and Rescue (my new duties as an elected progressive begin!) so I will not be able to be there with you. Please show up and show your concern about this very local issue of ICE being welcomed in to our community by NORCOR. Thank you!

Get National Popular Vote in Oregon

We are focusing all of our efforts on urging Senator Ginny Burdick to hold a hearing on HB 2927. She's repeatedly told us she's in support of the bill, if she is she needs to show it by holding a hearing. She says she supports NPV but is not scheduling a hearing. NPV has already passed the state house and now we need Sen. Burdick to give it a hearing in the Senate Rules Committee so it can move to the senate floor for a vote.

Call to Action: Health Care and Impeachment!

Below is a note from Mary Stata who is our Indivisible Oregon Representative.
