OPHA Public Health Advocacy Day

Join us January 19, 2019!

Join members of the Oregon Public Health Association January 31, 2019 for Public Health Advocacy Day in Salem! Formerly known as Capitol Visit Day, this is an opportunity to learn and advocate for public health related bills that the legislature is working on this session. Meet with your Senator and Representative to discuss and frame important public health issues.

 How can you prepare for the day?

  • We will arrange a meeting for you with your elected representative and senator based on the address you use to register. Look them up and learn more about them in advance. What are their priorities? 
  • Legislative meetings will include all registrants from that district, so you may go with a large or small group or you may be the only constituent. 
  • All groups, regardless of size, will have a group leader. The group leader will have experience meeting with elected officials and will help the group prepare for the meeting.
  • Remember, you elected this person (i.e., you are a constituent), so your opinion matters.
