On February 17 OSTPDX had it’s first collaborative meeting with NWGSD. 130 folks were in attendance, the jazz band, Flatbacks entertained and Rep Smith Warner and Hilary Uhlig informed us about the intricacies of passing legislation and how to be an effective citizen lobbyist. Our small group leaders inspired us to take action on housing (Alison McIntosh from Neighborhood Partnership), climate action (Madison Daisy Hathaway from Renew Oregon), gun violence prevention (Hilary Uhlig of Moms Demand Action), paid family leave (Andrea Paluso from Family Forward), and Rep Smith Warner discussing funding of education.
Let’s give a huge thank you to Audrey Goldfarb and Sambaran Chatterjee, local videographers and filmmakers) who recorded and created a video for the event.
Please check it out! You will be entertained, informed and inspired.
