2016 HCAO Membership Meeting: Sharing love and solidarity

On a very challenging week across our nation, over a hundred Health Care for All-Oregon activists and member organization representatives gathered in Corvallis on Saturday, November 12 for our statewide meeting.  Our meeting opened with a moment of silence and messages of love for families living in the country overtaken by fear and hate.  With amplified dedication to uplift the health of every family in Oregon and our country, attendees deepened commitments for increased statewide education and outreach, learned lessons from T.R Reid about ColoradoCare, and renewed dedication to help 2017 Fair Shot health care priorities like Cover All Kids get done.

If you joined our statewide meeting, our meeting organizers would greatly appreciate your feedback by taking this brief survey:
