On February 4, the first day of the legislative session, Health Care for All Oregon will be rallying on the capitol steps in Salem to demonstrate the breadth and depth of support for our cause. We're asking you to turn out in massive support of this rally.
Click here for fliers and updated information about the rally. We are hoping for thousands of members, families, and friends to show up and help convince our lawmakers that their constituents see the health care crisis as a critical issue.

The Linn Benton Greens discussed this at our January Chapter meeting and will be attending en masse. One of our chapter activists, Bobbi Hall, is a point person for HCAO in this area. She is organizing two buses to depart from Corvallis that day--bringing activist Greens and other health care activists to Salem for this series of events.
Information about transportation from Portland is at www.jwjpdx.org.
