– Join us to write thank you notes to Senator Merkley for his 15 and a half hour speech against Trump’s Supreme Court pick! What a great way to represent Oregon values!
– Come meet Ana Del Rocio Valderrama, running for the David Douglas School Board (DDS) in East Portland! The DDS races are extremely important this year. DDS has a high proportion of students of color, and the school board does not reflect the East Portland community. But we can help change that!
ABOUT ANA: Ana is currently the Policy Director of Multnomah County Commissioner Jessica Vega Pederson, and is a DDS parent. Ana has experience in education, community organizing, advocacy, and economic development. Her background as the daughter of working-class immigrants inspires her to promote social, environmental, and racial justice at the policy level. Ana is committed to public service that is evidence-based and community-led. (Info from emergeor.org)
– As always, we’ll discuss upcoming progressive legislation and events!
