Upcoming events plus thanks to Ericka

I just added information about times and locations of three town halls that Peter DeFazio will hold In Eugene and Springfield on August 1st and 2nd. Here's a link to his full schedule of town hall meetings in August.

Family Forward is supporting a day of action calling attention to federal health care legislation. A local event is scheduled for August 9th at the Eugene Public Library. You can register for the event at this website: https://familyforward.salsalabs.org/handsoffbendaction8917copy1copy1/index.html

The Register-Guard recently published a letter by our Reproductive Rights Committee chair Ericka Thessen. You can find the letter here: http://registerguard.com/rg/opinion/35796681-78/reproductive-act-makes-us-safer.html.csp . Thanks to Ericka for publicly recognizing the efforts of Eugene representative Julie Fahey, who was instrumental in sheparding the Reproductive Health Equity Act through the Oregon state legislature this year.
