Please join with other Portland Dems this Thursday evening for a Meet & Greet to celebrate Pride, Juneteenth, and the end of the recent election. Some of the newly elected Charter Commission Members will be in attendance and would love to meet you!
Juneteenth is a holiday that celebrates the end of slavery in the United States and commemorates all the enslaved who suffered so unjustly under its rule. Starting in 2022, Juneteenth will be an official paid state holiday, thanks to a new bill signed by Gov. Mills last week. Congratulations to Rep. Rachel Talbot Ross (D-Portland) who introduced the bill and whose leadership made this happen!
It’s time to vote! The polls are open tomorrow (Tuesday) from 7am-8pm, and you can look up your voting location here.
Don’t miss this chance. Make a plan to vote, because this local election is important.
We are voting on representatives to a commission that could update our charter–changing the very nature of how our city is governed. That means changing how city decisions are made and what kind of future is possible for us all. It’s true: the winners of this election will re-write Portland’s future.
So make sure to vote! And vote for candidates who share your values.
With the Charter Commission election on Tuesday, this is the weekend to come together as Democrats and make a difference for Portland’s future.
We need volunteers to make some calls and knock on some doors, tonight, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. It’s not that hard – we’re only reaching out to people who are already registered Democrats and giving them information about voting on Tuesday. We’ll give you instructions and everything you need to help. Just sign up and show up!
Socialize! Sunday, 2:30pm-4:30pm(Gather at Rising Tide Brewery for some time to celebrate and talk together)
Make calls – Monday, 6:00pm – 8:00pm (We will gather on Zoom and receive calling instructions in the Zoom meeting)
The Charter Commission is a non-partisan body, but that doesn’t mean Democrats can’t get involved. We want to make sure that the people making decisions about Portland’s future share our Democratic values. When Democrats help Democrats vote, we can change our city’s future together.
