Damned to Extinction
COIN Movie Night & Panel Discussion
Care about salmon? Care about orcas?

A panel discussion will follow the film. Join the Zoom event on Tuesday, June 14, from 6:00-8:00pm by registering here, where you can also submit questions for the expert panel members.
Clackamas County Clerk Has Got to Go
Th vote count debacle in Clackamas County, which resulted in significantly delayed returns in Jamie McLeod-Skinner’s Congressional race, was disturbing. County Clerk Sherry Hall, who is an elected official, has had many missteps in her 20 years in office. This is such a crucial time for elections; we cannot afford more inefficiency and poor publicity.
Please consider writing a letter to the editor to make your concern known, prevent future mishaps, and replace Sherry Hall this November with her opponent Catherine McMullen, an experienced election professional.
