First Amendment bill, Endorsement Update & More w/BerniePDX
The Watershed, 5040 SE Milwaukie

Excape the heat & join us to hear about a really important bill in the US Congress that raises serious first amendment concerns – and has support from Democrats like Senator Wyden.

According to CREDO, the bill (S. 720/H.R. 1697) is so broad that if the government claims that your decision to boycott a company "furthers or supports" a boycott issued by a group like the United Nations Human Rights Commission, prosecutors could charge you with a felony, huge fines, and sentence you to prison. Learn about this bill and what we can do to help stop it!

We'll give an update on the Oregon House race to appoint someone to Rep. Ann Lininger's seat (HD-38), for which BerniePDX sent out a candidate endorsement questionnaire (check it out here: http://bit.ly/2fa6rSz). And we'll talk about our next potential endorsement!

BerniePDX Anniversary BBQ (on 9/10)! Here the details of where we're at so far and next steps!

More announcements and events to come!

Protect Oregon's Healthcare: Talk with Nico Serra
The Watershed, 5040 SE Milwaukie

All Oregonians Deserve High-Quality Healthcare.

Whether you work in a coffee shop or at a construction site, you should be able to access the care that you need at a price that you can afford. With Ballot Measure 101, we will be closer to realizing that than ever before: 95 percent of Oregonians and all children will have access to healthcare if Ballot Measure 101 passes in January. Together, we can make Oregon a healthier place.

Come hear BerniePDXer and healthcare activist and leader Nico Serra on Ballot Measure 101 next Tuesday night.

In addition, come write your post card asking Senator Wyden to co-sponsor Bernie's Medicare-for-All bill! We're sending Wyden big stacks each week. We'll also discuss upcoming local events and more.

Portlanders' Bill of Rights & Ranked Choice Voting w/BerniePDX
The Watershed, 5040 SE Milwaukie

We have two exciting speakers about issues that have the potential to change Portland Metro for the better --> with a Residents Bill of Rights, & Ranked Choice Voting (with which Trump wouldn't have won).

--> Portland People’s Coalition has been meeting with groups across the Metro area to develop a Bill of Rights for all Portlanders that will be used to influence elections, politics, and our lives. They want to hear about what YOU want to see in it!

Come learn about it, ask questions, give feedback. Find out how we can help build this organizing effort modeled on Richmond Progressive Alliance (http://www.richmondprogressivealliance.net/). There will be a ratifying convention for the local Bill of Rights in early 2018!

--> Multnomah County has the chance to pilot a new voting method that could change both local and national elections for the better. What if we just voted once in November and the candidate with the most support actually won? What if you knew your vote would make a difference, even if your favorite doesn’t stand a chance? What if you could just be honest and vote your conscience?

STAR Voting is an innovative solution that allows voters to rate each candidate from zero to five, like on Amazon or Yelp reviews. This means that your completed ballot will show how much you like or dislike each candidate, as well as showing your preferences between them. STAR Voting is highly accurate, no matter how many candidates are in the race, so we can level the playing field, eliminate the low turnout, expensive primary, and just have one election day.
