Please join Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility in supporting the Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Act (HB 3510, SB 888).
On Friday, March 11th, the Oregon Single Payer Coalition, endorsed by Oregon PSR, is sponsoring a Lobby Day for the Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Act (HB 3510 and SB 888) at the Oregon Capitol in Salem.
Registration for the training will begin at 9:00 am at MICAH Hall, in the First Methodist Church, 680 State Street, one block from the Capitol. Training, between 9:30 and 10:30 am, will take about a half hour, and coffee, fruit and pastries will be provided. Then, advocates will meet with their legislators or legislative aides until noon. If you request lunch, it can be arranged for a small fee.
The Oregon Single Payer Coalition’s Lobby Day Appointment Coordinator is currently scheduling appointments with legislators. Please contact him at the email address or phone number below to see if/when your legislator is available.
There will be a rally on the Capitol steps from noon until 1:00 pm, and advocates will continue meeting with legislators until 3:00 pm. There will be a hearing by the House Health Care Committee to take testimony for the bill between 3:00 and 4:00 pm.
Oregon PSR asserts that promoting health for all is a vital social responsibility. Attention must be paid to social determinants of individual and public health, as well as to the system providing medical care.
