The City of Portland in collaboration with @multco will provide cooling centers in public buildings, water misting stations in public parks, and more. To see when and where these resources are available, go to: multco.us/help-when-its-hot

PCC's Ruslana Rozhanskaya is helping her former country Ukraine the best way she knows. The support of Ukrainian-Americans has been critical for new refugees escaping Russia's invasion. @KateForOregon @OregonGovBrown @michaeldembrow @KhanhPhamForOR #orleg pcc.edu/news/2022/07/helping…

Can’t believe it’ll still be closed when I leave in two years. So many lovely memories of time spent with colleagues & constituents, or alone appreciating the legacy of this space. Seismic work is needed, tho, & this brief disruption will result in a stronger, safer Capitol.
A beautiful space - scale, symetry, clean lines. If you worked late enough, there were times when you can stand alone in the rotunda. I've worked in three other state capitals, but this is my favorite.

Over 200,000 low-income Oregonians will soon receive a $600 stimulus. Credit to @DreaValderrama for advancing this important work. Too many families are struggling to cover expenses and we have more work ahead to address the growing wealth divide. #orpol oregonlive.com/politics/2022…

Employment is a proven strategy for youth success, including for preventing youth violence. During COVID, we were able to provide more flexible alternatives & work with new partners. Excited about expanded funding in FY23. multco.us/multnomah-county/n…

You can find more information about the initiative, the campaign, how you can help, and how you can sign from home here: lifteveryvoiceoregon.com/
If the initiative gets on the ballot and passes, anyone wanting to acquire a firearm in Oregon would first have to get a permit from local law enforcement after completing safety training, passing a criminal background check and meeting other requirements. opb.org/article/2022/06/11/t…

In response to community groups losing access to state summer learning grants over an insurance requirement, several insurers have stepped up to offer coverage. Groups can use the state grants to pay for the insurance. oregoncapitalchronicle.com/b…

It appears that a solution to the insurance challenge preventing small CBOs from participating in Oregon’s summer learning programming this summer has been found at last. Many thanks to all. oaesd.org/2022/06/08/greetin…
The organization issuing state grants said already they've gotten requests they will not be able to fill because of the insurance requirement. "It’s heartbreaking. There are kids who are not going to get services because of this rule." oregoncapitalchronicle.com/?…
