Traci Goff Flowers of Grace Wins Haven is inviting APARC (Alcohol Prevention and Recovery Committee) and MHAC (Mental Health Advisory Committee) members (actually, everyone) to an Open House at the new Day Shelter that she is remodeling to serve people without housing at the former Patrol Services building (a few doors west of the Lincoln County Food Share warehouse) at 437 NE First Street, in Newport, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm this Friday (Dec. 22). Traci was APARCs guest in December and this is one of the projects she discussed. Holiday cheer, refreshments, door prizes, and great yuletide vibes!
|Oregon NOW is proud to have endorsed Measure 101. Here are four things you need to know about Measure 101, which will be on your January Special Election ballot:
Many women are deeply affected by a lack of access to health care. Despite the fact that women make about 80% of the health care decisions in their families, they often face many barriers to accessing the doctor visits and the prescriptions they need. Until recently, they were often charged much higher rates for insurance coverage just because they are women, and they were often denied coverage because of “pre-existing conditions” like diabetes or even being a survivor of domestic violence.
Measure 101 protects health care for working Oregonians — and that especially matters for women. When women are healthier, families are healthier. When families are healthier, our communities are healthier. And when communities are healthier, Oregon is healthier.
Join us in voting YES on Measure 101 by January 23rd. If you agree that every Oregonian deserves health care, no matter who they are or where they work, then pledge to vote YES this January.
If you live in the Portland or Eugene areas, can you volunteer to help protect health care access for Oregonians? Sign up here to phone bank or canvass: yesforhealthcare.org/RSVP. Visit the Yes for Healthcare website to find out other ways to get involved.
Please join us in voting YES for women, YES for families, YES for health care, and YES for Measure 101.
