South Willamette Valley NOW Legislative Task Force
The Legislative Task Force of South Willamette Valley NOW works to keep out membership engaged with key legislation at local, state, and national levels.
We have been most active at the state level, where we work with other NOW chapters across Oregon to understand active legislation relevant to NOW priorities, to make recommendations for legislative endorsements to NOW organizational boards at state and local levels, and to organize activities in support of (or opposition to) legislation that is important to us. We also follow issues up and down the political spectrum from city and county concerns through to national level political issues.
Our aim is to engage our membership at levels suitable to the time and effort individuals have available. Those activities range from individual activities like writing postcards and contacting representatives through letters, emails, and phone calls to organizing meetings with representatives from our local districts and participating in lobbying efforts in Salem and beyond.
