Our hearts are with everyone as wildfires affect nearly all Oregonians. The fires remind us that our planet is fragile and that we are all in this together. Stay safe. Stay in touch.

In Oregon, we value our way of life. That won’t change even as we look forward to new jobs in the future and rebuild our communities from the wildfires. But some of the corporations that fund Timber Unity PAC loudly push us away from new industries and new jobs. They want to get as much profit as they can from old industries, but they leave us with fewer jobs and little money for our communities. If we come together and elect forward-thinking candidates, we can keep our valued way of life and also welcome a future with reliable, good-paying jobs. #OregonBetterTogether

THE COALITION TO PROTECT THE RESULTS

 Indivisible has partnered with Stand Up America to begin building an action plan should Trump deny losing the election or otherwise obstruct the election. You can learn more about the plan that groups across the country will be called upon to Protect the Results here. As more details for this are confirmed, we will share them with you ASAP.

More information is here and at warrentoncl@gmail.com
TUESDAY'S CALL TO YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
Please call! Contact info is here.  From Indivisible Oregon:
Our leaders should care for us, no matter where we live or who we vote for. Trump knowingly downplayed the COVID risk, costing hundreds of thousands of lives. He denigrates our military and the troops. We need Democrats in Congress to showcase Trump's disregard for our lives  to pass the HEROES Act. Thank our Democratic Congressional delegation for doing so much for us, and urge them to keep going.
