Description

Excape the heat & join us to hear about a really important bill in the US Congress that raises serious first amendment concerns โ€“ 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!

The space has A/C - yay!
