Oregon Interfaith Power & Light Advocacy Days
Cherice Bock of Oregon Interfaith Power & Light (OIPL) Advocacy is inviting people in Representative Pam Marsh's district to a virtual meeting with her scheduled for Friday, April 21, 2023 at 11:00 a.m, PDT with a prep meeting right beforehand at 10:45 a.m. Here is the meeting link for both meetings. Please let Cherice know if you're available and plan to attend firstname.lastname@example.org or 503.314.7908.
You can also invite others you know in her district to attend. This is only a 15-minute meeting, so EMO will mainly emphasize that we want her to focus on pending climate and environmental justice legislation. Depending on where certain bills are at this point, OIPL advocacy may emphasize one or another of their priority bills more strongly.
Richenda Fairhurst says:
"Sometimes I think I get happy and comfortable resting in the good fortune I feel to have Rep. Marsh as our representative when it comes to issues like climate justice. Yet, at the same time, I think it helps to have opportunities to share our thanks (if we are thankful) our support (if we are supportive) our concerns (whatever we feel is important to share) and any questions we have as constituents in constituent meetings. This Friday is an opportunity for such a meeting: 10:45 prep and 11:00am meeting."
