Civil Rights and Social Justice – the Struggle Continues
January 23 at 7 pm Lobby 101 945 Columbia St. NE Salem
We’re turning our regular 4th Tuesday meeting (at our new location) into a quick course in advocacy for the Clean Energy Jobs Bill in the 2018 Oregon Legislative Session. 2018 may be a short session, but this bill has a long history and lot of work from legislators, policy analysts, stakeholders and advocates. It’s time to get it passed! We’ll learn about the bill and how to communicate with state legislators in meetings with constituent groups, by email and phone, and writing convincing letters to the editor.
