    Valentines for Clean Air Lobby Day

    Join your friends, neighbors and fellow air advocates to help us deliver Valentines to the Oregon state legislature. What better way to show our love than to ensure clean safe air for all to breathe? #WeAllBreathe ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The legislative session starts next month, and your legislators need to see actual people show up to demonstrate that we care about cleaning up Oregon’s air. Clean air has taken a back seat in Oregon in years past, and we’ve all seen the results.

    Along with serious diesel pollution impacting all of our health and an historical lack of enforceable air quality rules, 43% of Oregon’s largest polluters are currently operating with expired permits—some as long as five years past due.

    We need to tell our representatives that we won’t wait anymore!

    We want them to prioritize real mandates for clean air, like:

    1. funding to enforce Oregon’s new air quality regulations and reduce permitting backlogs, and
    2. standards to rid our state of dirty diesel and prohibit importing old equipment, already outlawed in California.

    We’ll be delivering valentines to our legislators and reminding them why we love clean air.

    We’ll be providing breakfast and lunch, transportation and materials for attendees. A full agenda is forthcoming.

    Salem Womxn's March

    12/24/17 The Womxn's March coordinating committee is excited to be a part of making this wonderful event possible. The 2017 Women's March was incredibly successful. It provided visibility and momentum for a variety of local organizations and causes. The March is a celebration of who we are and what we have accomplished, showing that women and marginalized womxn (pronounced women-ex, also think of ‘x’ as a variable that means the word woman but when adding the ‘x’: womxn, the word now becomes more inclusive) are valued by our community. It is also the catalyst for work to be done locally and nationally in the future. The strong message it sends to our current administration is vital to protecting our rights and our very democracy.

    There was controversy from last year's march in that there was a lack of inclusivity. Many people, from Salem’s own underrepresented communities expressed their disappointment that the 2017 Salem Women’s March did not feel inclusive and that care was not given to their issues. This was discussed in several forums before and after the actual day.

    For the upcoming 2018 anniversary march, when the call for volunteers/coordinators went out, there was a strong emphasis on developing a coalition of new and diverse voices to show our solidarity as one community, one Salem.

    With the world changing in regard to how we view, talk about, and include LGBTQ persons as well as people of color, and all of the complex and beautiful intersections in between, the decision to use an alternative spelling in the name of the march was made by the coordinating committee from the first meeting held on 12/2/17.

    The use of Womxn instead of Women is an effort to include more of the people who make up our communities and the city of Salem. We understand that this is a bit confusing for people not familiar with LGBTQ issues. The fact that this decision has been well-received by so many is heartening. At the same time, it is baffling that a handful of people continue to express their opposition to the decision that has already been made by the coordinating committee after input from a wide range of stakeholders.

    We hope that you will join us in this positive and uplifting event and that any questions any one has be directed to this page and to the event coordinators.

    Thanks to all for your support and enthusiasm!

    Womxn Belong in the Resistance!

    -LeA

    Our Mission:Led by a diverse and inclusive group, the Salem Womxn’s March is committed to amplifying womxn’s voices to empower and enable each other in the fight for womxn’s rights and political involvement within our communities.

    By embracing our differences and acknowledging the vibrancy, diversity, and honoring our intersectionality, we can work towards our shared mission to uphold civil liberties,and rights for all womxn, and denounce hate in our community. We will utilize our strategic connections and partnerships to create real and lasting change.

    Gov. Brown Stand Up for Climate: Stop the Pipeline Rally

    Join the No LNG Exports Coalition for a day action at the Capitol on Thursday, January 11th to ask Governor Brown to stand up for the climate by denying the Pacific Connector fracked gas Pipeline and Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal!

    On this day Oil Change International and the No LNG Exports Coalition will be releasing a groundbreaking study on the lifecycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions of the pipeline and export facility.

    The Pacific Connector Pipeline is a proposed 229-mile pipeline that would take fracked gas sourced from the Rocky mountains from Malin to Coos Bay, where it would be liquefied and exported from a giant new facility called the Jordan Cove LNG Export terminal. This project would become the largest source of climate pollution in Oregon and would undermine action to meet goals to protect our climate and transition to renewable energy. The Governor and her State Agencies have the authority to deny permits and stop this project. We need Governor Kate Brown to stand up for the climate and stop this project for good.

    FOR CARPOOLS CONTACT (before 5pm on Wednesday, Jan 10):

    More details to come soon!

    An early version of this event was deleted on accident by a co-host. This is the OFFICIAL event page for the No Pipeline action on Jan 11th.

    Veterans First! No More 22 - RALLY at the Capitol!

    Veterans and active duty service members deserve adequate access to mental health care. While veterans only make up 10 percent of Oregon’s population, they make up nearly a quarter of all suicides. We are in the midst of a crisis, yet veterans are continually and consistently ignored.

    It’s time to put veterans first. Senate Bill 1054 would temporarily waive a costly and time intensive roadblock that the Oregon Health Authority requires for all new psychiatric facilities. This requirement – obtaining a Certificate of Need – is just another roadblock that veterans must hurdle in order to receive the care they need.

    Join us in supporting SB 1054 and let our elected officials know that veterans don’t need another barrier that prevents them from getting help – they need our support. Rally around veterans at the Capitol and make sure our voices are heard!

    We welcome you and your family to stand up for the veteran community and hear from those that agree it’s time to put veterans first.

    Bring your signs and energy to support Senate Bill 1054 and let’s make sure the Oregon Legislature knows it’s time to prioritize our veteran community!

    For more information on the bill and how it will help our veteran and military community, see this op-ed written by Senator Brian Boquist: http://www.oregonlive.com/opinion/index.ssf/2017/05/oha_for_holding_hostages_colle.html


    Keeping Our Promise PAC is a bi-partisan effort dedicated towards getting 5% of the net proceeds of the Oregon Lottery dedicated to veterans programs and services. Help us reach the ballot and ensure Oregon veterans know we're grateful for their service.
