On Thursday, May 19th, the Multnomah County Commissioners will be hearing a resolution in support of Universal Healthcare. The resolution will be introduced by Sharon Meieran and co sponsored by Susheela Jayapal. Chief of staff for Jayapal, Sarah Ryan called this a “big deal” because typically the commissioners do not consider resolutions. The commissioners are urging Congress to pass, and the president to sign a bill that would create a publicly funded Universal Healthcare system that is comprehensive, equitable, affordable, accessible and of high-quality. Please watch or listen. The hearing will begin at 9:30 am.
In Person Arrive at the Multnomah Board room at 9:15. Please wear red (preferably your Health care for All Oregon shirt) to show solidarity. Masks are optional.
