April Digest: Taking Action
Hello fellow Democrats
April is Earth Month. As a child growing up here, I remember April was always the rainy month. A few days ago, the National Weather Service issued a red flag warning of fire dangers for most of Northwest Oregon. Addressing the impacts of climate change will occupy the rest of our lives on many fronts, from the economy to migration to health care. Democrats have advocated for addressing both the causes and impacts of climate change, along with other progressive policies, but our advocacy means little unless we also take action. That’s why the theme for this month’s Digest is Taking Action.
A forward-thinking platform and progressive resolutions are not enough. We must work to make sure our bold ideas are enacted. Long-time member, Robert Reynolds, has been working for years with fellow Democrats to help bring our legislators into greater alignment with our platform. Recently, newly elected State Representative Khanh Pham supported our plank on Public Banks when she sponsored HB 2743 supporting municipal banks. And this month, the Comms Team, working with Bobbi Yambasu, created a new Action Alerts newsletter headed up by Comms volunteer, Britton Taylor, to alert members when important legislation needs our support and how we can help. In MultDems, we’re taking action in many ways every day to move our city, county, state and nation forward.
