    Protect Oregon's Healthcare: Talk with Nico Serra

    The Watershed

    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.

    First Amendment bill, Endorsement Update & More w/BerniePDX

    The Watershed

    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!

    The space has A/C - yay!
