I’ve invited you to fill out a form: Yes, I want to support FAMLI with NOW in Salem in the week of June 3rd Oregon NOW participates in the Time 2 Care coalition which is organizing support for the bill introducing Family and Medical Leave Insurance for Oregon. In support of the coalition’s efforts, we would like to commit Oregon NOW, including all local chapters, to provide on-site support in Salem during the week of June 3rd.
Our obligation will be to have a few people show up in Salem every day to provide a visible presence in support of the bill. We would like to have a team of two or more in the Capitol Building each day. Their responsibilities will be to distribute literature as Time 2 Care instructs and to visit with Senators and Representatives either to thank them for support or to ask for their support to the bill. You don’t have to plan on a full day, but half a day is requested. We will arrange volunteer housing that is relatively nearby (Eugene, Corvallis, Albany, Salem) to help members whose travel to/from Salem is too many miles for a comfortable day trip.
June seems pretty late in the legislative game, but if legislation is still alive, it could be a critical period for support. In order to commit NOW to taking the lead with the legislature during this week, we would like to have a commitment from enough people to expect at least two people to be in the Capitol every day. We know, too, that the first week of June is far in the future; make your best guess now and let us know if your plans change.
