The weather is warming up just in time for this Friday’s rally in Salem! Mostly sunny and 72 degrees is the perfect backdrop for rallying to protect Oregon’s schools, health care, and jobs. We can’t wait to see you there.
For weeks, Oregonians have been standing up and speaking out against proposed budget cuts that would devastate our communities. Oregonians like you and me have demanded that legislators fight to protect the schools and services that middle-class families depend on.
It’s all been leading up to this.
Join us as we speak out loudly to protect the things that make our state great: schools, care for seniors and people with disabilities, public safety, and our natural environment. Legislators need to protect Oregon’s middle class, not give away tax breaks that only benefit corporations and the rich.
The Better Way Rally will have music, food, fun, and the opportunity to join thousands of other Oregonians in a history-making event. Go here for more details and to get signed up.
Our Oregon will be posting photos and videos during the event on Twitter and Facebook. We need you to help tell the story of this historic event by finding us and sharing at twitter.com/ouroregon and facebook.com/ouroregon.
Will you be at the event, with Twitter-capable phone or computer in hand? Use the Twitter hashtag #betterwayrally so that we can use the Twitter feeds to document what happens at the rally.
