In case you missed these recent great COINversations....
Check out the recordings from our recent COINversations:
A Quorum COINversation - We talked with a panel of experts about the need for and the complexity of changing Oregon's antiquated 2/3 Quorum Rule that has led to 7 GOP walkouts in the last 5 years. Our panel included: State Representatives Khanh Pham and David Gomberg, State Senator Michael Dembrow, public interest attorney Dan Meek, and Our Oregon's executive director, Michele Ruffin.
A COINversation with Robert Hubbell - Mr Hubbell is the author of Today’s Edition Newsletter, which he started in February 2017 to provide hope and perspective to his family after Donald Trump was elected to the presidency. Over time, his family email was shared with friends who shared it with their friends, and today it is a daily reading for more than 50,000 subscribers, all part of a community of like-minded citizens devoted to preserving American democracy.

We Care Fund-A-Thon with
Northwest Abortion Access Fund
In the latest assault on reproductive freedom, a Trump-appointed judge has issued a ruling withdrawing FDA approval of mifepristone, one of two drugs used in abortions. FDA approved the abortion pill 23 years ago, and it has proven over and over to be a safe and effective drug for early abortion and care during miscarriages.
The judge's unprecedented ruling may jeopardize access to the abortion pill across the country including in Oregon. Join the fight to protect reproductive freedom and access to safe reproductive health care services!
Join the COIN We Care Team's 2023 Fund-A-Thon with Northwest Abortion Access Fund by donating to provide access to abortion and other reproductive health care services.
COIN Groups Take Action in their Communities
Thank you health care workers!
Indivisible activists know the work that starts in our homes and communities is just as important as the work that goes on inside the government. Whether we're gathering in homes or by zoom, organizing rallies, sign waving from bridges, phone banking, post carding, meeting with elected leaders, working on legislation, or even running for office, our members put in the time because democracy matters.
"This is about the fight for the soul of our democracy." Elijah Cummings
Kudos to Indivisible North Curry County on the success of their Women's March in January. For a small town, they have an active group and a very visible location for their rallies. Bret Cecil reported that the group marched a mile along Oregon Coast Highway 101 and was met with much support in the form of honks and waves from cars driving by.
WOW! What a Weekend!
COIN's Voting is Our Superpower rally and COINvention was pretty awesome!

Freedom to choose when to start a FAMILY
Freedom to love and marry who we LOVE
Freedom to be OURSELVES

Freedom to live in a healthy DEMOCRACY
