Thursday, March 21, 4:15-5:15pm: Rally for Schools and Students
The Joint Committee on Ways and Means is holding a public “hearing” in the MAHB at PCC-Cascade in response to their proposed budget, which slashes Oregon school funding by an additional $100 million dollars, and under-funds the QEM by over $2 billion in the coming biennium. It is clear they have chosen NOT to hear us or this proposal would not exist.
Join together in front of the student union building with educators, students, and community members as we rally together and share our stories. Let’s make sure everyone is heard. Loud and Clear.
Location: PCC Cascade, 705 N Killingsworth St.
