Register now for the HCAO general meeting

Plan to spend the day in Portland at the HCAO meeting, October 21, 2017, learning from your peers, attending break-out sessions, and networking with friends from across the state--from La Grande to Ashland, and from Newport to Bend. HCAO member organizations' and local action group delegates, individual members, and other supporters will celebrate victories, plan strategies, and strengthen our movement to create universal health care in Oregon. Remember: we are aiming for a ballot measure in 2020.

We need an accurate attendance count, so please register. Register HERE
