OPHA Public Health Advocacy Call-In Day
Join us Thursday, January 31st, 2019

Want to join the Oregon Public Health Association's annual Advocacy Day on Jan. 31st, but can't make it to Salem? OPHA is encouraging all of our members to take action on the 31st by visiting or calling our representatives. It's important that legislators know public health policy is important to constituents across the state and phone calls do make an impact. 

EVENT DETAILS

What: OPHA call-in Day of Action in conjunction with OPHA's Public Health Advocacy Day in Salem

When: Thursday, January 31st between 9 am and 5 pm

Where: Anywhere in Oregon (or wherever you happen to be on the 31st)

Registration: Commit to Taking Action - Registration is not required, but is encouraged to help OPHA better support members. This is a free event. 

If you are employed by a government agency you are allowed to participate in OPHA Public Health Advocacy Day as a private citizen, however you may need to use personal time. Check with your supervisor as needed.  

PREPARE

1)  Make sure you know who your representative is

2)  Make sure you know what bills OPHA has endorsed

3) Think about what these bills mean to you as a public health professional and Oregonian and how you want to share that with your representative. You can find tips here.
