Dear Nancy,
GombergVegaPedersonAs newly elected officials in the Oregon House of Representatives, we strongly encourage you to participate in Women’s Health Care Day at the Capitol on March 14th in Salem.Click here to sign up today.
In a representative democracy, there’s nothing more compelling than hearing directly from constituents about your priorities, your concerns and your solutions. It’s the personal stories that bring to light the need for changes in public policy, and we welcome the opportunity to learn how we can represent you in the best way possible. This holds especially true for women’s health: Thousands of Oregonians need access to affordable, lifesaving, preventative health care – and you can make a significant impact by spending a day meeting face-to-face with your elected representatives. Remember, we work for you!
Please register today to help strengthen women’s health – and ask your friends to join you. Citizen lobbying empowers you to make sure your voice is heard, and it allows us to be more effective in our jobs. That’s truly a win-win situation!
