We’ve weathered a lot of storms – COVID, politics, and now icy weather.  I hope this finds everyone recovering from the latest cold times.  At our East Washington County Dems meeting on February 1, 2024 we will gather on zoom to hear from some of those helping our neighbors who struggle the most.  The plight of houselessness and hunger is often in the news but we hear less about all of the good things that are happening in our communities to help people.  Our former representative Margaret Doherty along with executive director, Dr. Vernon Baker will tell us about what is happening at Just Compassion, a comprehensive answer to houselessness for many people,  and about the new developments that are in the works. We will also hear from Family Promise of Tualatin Valley about their programs providing services and housing to families.  Other organizations will also be highlighted that serve those in the most need.
 
We will also get a preview of the upcoming short legislative session and some of the candidates who will be running this year. 

The many problems of our neighborhoods, the nation and the world weigh on many of us.  On hearing of some of the hopeful solutions in our community and the good work of those who are making this happen, I hope all of us can be inspired to join in on a campaign of caring. Whether it is sending a letter of thanks to those who work in these programs, finding a way to volunteer, helping a neighbor, saying a kind word to the person who checks out your groceries, or just smiling at a teen – all of us can help make a difference.  We also have a special opportunity this spring.  The tax rebate kicker will be one of the largest in Oregon history.  For some of us, this is much needed money and will be quickly used up.  For others, we may be able to share some of it with programs that are much in need of help. We will be introducing this campaign of caring at our meeting.  We can all share ideas of how we can help make our community more compassionate.  

As always, all are welcome to join us for learning, caring conversation, and community.  We will meet for a social time on zoom at 6:30 with the program beginning at 7 pm on Thursday, February  1.   The zoom link is below. Feel free to email with any questions or comments.
