Health Care is a Human Right, change the wording of Oregon Constitution.
Important: Do not talk about single payer healthcare. Senator Greenlick and HCAO have come up with a well thought out plan.
Phase One 2018- We establish that healthcare is a human right in our state constitution. Once that is accomplished, we will have to figure out a mechanism to deliver healthcare to all Oregonians.
Again, do not talk about the method of delivery, just that healthcare is a fundamental, human right.
Please call your electeds: or consider going to salem for lobby days.

The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The Oregon Senate Rules Committee is holding a hearing on Tuesday February 6, so please email your Oregon legislators asking them to support the version of the National Popular Vote bill (HB 2927) that has passed the Oregon House of Representatives four times — and to oppose the referral version of the bill (SB 1512).

Say no to Trump Tax Scam
SB 1527, SB 1529 – If these two bills pass they will STOP permanent revenue reduction for the state of Oregon. Wealthy business owners will invest in Oregon rather than crippling our economy.
How can you help?

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Chicago, March 25, 1966
Measure 101 addresses health care funding through authorizing “provider fees”. It is a system that is effective in 49 other states, and a system which providers themselves support. The passage of Measure 101 will ensure 400,000 Oregon kids can still see a doctor, will maintain services for seniors, and will help stabilize premiums for all Oregonians.
But it won’t pass without your help as an active Multnomah County Democrat.
This really DOES depend on you.
*Please sign up NOW, so we can have an amazing all-out effort in the last weekend before Election Day.
With the largest population in the state, Measure 101 will win or lose based on how effective Multnomah County is at getting out the vote in support of this measure.
Passing Measure 101 is only possible with your support and energy.
Let’s start 2018 with a win!
Did you know?
Socks are the LEAST donated item of clothing.
Lack of access to clean, dry socks is associated with multiple health problems.
This season over 4,000 members of Multnomah County are houseless. This small act of kindness can make their lives a little more bearable during the colder months of the year.
From now until December 14th, our goal is to collect 600 pairs of clean, new socks to distribute to the homeless. You can help us reach that goal by dropping off your donation of new socks at the Multnomah Democrats office (3551 NE Sandy Blvd. Portland Oregon) during regular office hours on Tuesday or Wednesday. Please call ahead at to ensure a staff member of volunteer is there to accept your donation. (503) 248-0826
You can also bring you generous donation to our next Central Committee Meeting on December 14th at the Hollywood Senior Center at 1820 NE 40th Avenue in Portland, Oregon. The meeting begins at 6 PM.
Multnomah Democrats are committed to bringing attention, compassion and support to our houseless neighbors, both now and in the future. The Sock Drive will run November 9th 2017 to December 14th 2017.
Thank you for your support!
We wanted to let you know that we have just launched an exiting new program called Ami’s Actions. Ami’s Actions will mobilize our volunteers to actions that will protect our neighbors and influence elected decision makers to better reflect our values.
But we need you to make it work.
Once you sign up, you will receive text messages from Ami’s Actions, no more than two or three a week, calling you to action. The action could be calling an elected official, signing a petition, or showing up to protest an executive order or help our neighbors.
To join, text EZActions (with an S at the end!) to 797979. That’s it! Then, you will get text messages with specific calls to action.
Please note: by signing up for Ami’s Actions, you agree that we can send your phone text messages (SMS). We don’t make any money off these messages; nonetheless, your plan’s regular charges for text messages may apply. You may quit any time by texting STOP to 797979.
