From Lincoln County Democrats
At 7 pm on August 28 Lincoln County Democrats will team up with local chapters of PFLAG and NOW on the subject of the efforts to place Marriage Equality on the November 2014 Oregon ballot. Together we will learn what the measure would do and why it is important to couples. Training on the rules and responsibilities of signature gathering will be available. Trained gatherers will be provided with petitions and there will be some planning for some community events to collect signatures. The group will also be recognizing the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech.
It will occur at Central Lincoln PUD which is located at 2129 North Coast Highway, Newport (across US 101 from Safeway.) Coffee and a light snack will be provided. Meetings of the Lincoln County Democratic Central Committee are free and open to the public. For more information, call Chair BillieJo Smith at 541-336-9578, or see the group’s website, www.lcdcc.org
