WEDNESDAY, MARCH 29, 6:30PM: Public Forum on Labor, Veterans, Healthcare Profiteering, and the Fight Against Privatization

Union members, military veterans, and healthcare reformers around the country are demanding that the Biden Administration stop its privatization of traditional Medicare and the VA hospital system, two of our best working models for single-payer healthcare.

At the USPS, which employs more than 100,000 veterans, workers are also resisting the continuation of Trump-era policies designed to replace our national network of post offices with private mail delivery firms.

At this March 29 labor-community discussion, find out more about these critical anti-privatization campaigns – and what’s at stake for Medicare recipients, VA patients, Postal Service customers, and all private and public sector union members.

Location: First Unitarian Church, 1211 SW Main St.

Congratulations to Travis Nelson, Mark Gamba, and Farrah Chaichi on winning your elections to the Oregon Legislature! We are lucky to have you representing us at the state level. 

Congratulations to Portlanders for passing Charter Reform. Beginning in 2024, we will get to elect City Councilors from our own communities! We are also thrilled that Measure 112 passed, which will amend Oregon’s constitution to remove slavery as a criminal punishment. 

BerniePDX was honored to endorse Jo Ann Hardesty for PDX City Council, Libra Forde for Clackamas County, and Jamie McLeod Skinner for Congress. Not all the ballots have been counted, and we would love to update this post to add some more winners. But if not, we hope to support these wonderful women in a future run for office.
