Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG)'s Portland Election Watch Happy Hour & Fundraiser

Lucky Labrador Brew Pub 915 SE Hawthorne

Portland, OR 97214, US (map)



PORTLANDIANS & Oregonians!: Interested in ensuring fair elections in our country? Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG) Foundation is launching a groundbreaking, non-partisan Election Watch program and we need your help! http://www.lawyersforgoodgovernment.org/

Think voter suppression and erosion of voting rights cannot happen in Oregon? Think again.

Exhibit 1: Oregon Proof of Citizenship to Vote Initiative. Signatures are now being sought to put this on the 2018 ballot. It calls for CLEARING Oregon's Voter Rolls by 2020, at which time anyone wanting to vote MUST register (again), but this time with proof of US citizenship. Let that sink in.

We will be discussing this issue, and other voting issues - as well as the new non-partisan ELECTION WATCH program - on 8/29, 6-8 pm at the Lucky Lab SE. The event is FREE and more info is in the "about" section in this post.

Election Watch will be the first nationwide program to ensure that at least one trained volunteer lawyer is in every county in the U.S. for the purpose of proactively addressing voter suppression BEFORE an election, as opposed to litigating after the damage is done. http://www.lawyersforgoodgovernment.org/blog/electionwatch

Come to the Portland Election Watch #SpiritedVoting HAPPY HOUR & Fundraiser event on 8/29 at the SE location of “Lucky Lab” from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to learn more about the program and help us raise the money we need to get it off the ground. The suggested donation for this event is $20, but feel free to donate MORE, or less. You can donate online here: http://www.lawyersforgoodgovernment.org/donate OR bring cash or a check made out to "Lawyers for Good Government Foundation."

Hope to see you there!
