Canvass for Drivers Cards: Sunday, September 14
Please register now: There will be a lunch, training and canvass from 1-5 pm that day, with dinner to follow!!
The month of September brings with it many important activities during an election year, and so Western States Center is hosting a canvass for Safe Roads – Yes on 88 on Sunday, September 14th. APANO deeply understands that the freedom of mobility and access to driving is a Gender Justice issue – withholding driver’s licenses to undocumented people and their families marginalizes them economically, socially and politically. And as an organization that upholds racial and gender justice values, this is a fight that affects all of us.
Date and Time: Sunday, September 14th from 1pm – 5pm (dinner as a cohort to follow)
Location: Zion United Church of Christ (2025 NE 23rd St, Gresham, OR 97030)
Register here to help us match you up with a perfect walking partner and make sure all of your needs are met!
