Re: Measures 66 and 67, Special Election Jan. 26

Dear Supporter,

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon Needs YOU to
Support Our YES on M66 & M67 Phone Drive

As you know, Oregon’s January Special Election is less than 3 weeks away. We are urging voters to support Measures 66 & 67 to protect funding for reproductive health care [ abortion and birth control ] and other critical services like education and public safety.  If we do not raise additional revenue, severe cuts to these vital services will leave our women and their families vulnerable.

The opposition has spent millions of dollars in misleading ads.

We need YOU to use your voice to give voters the truth about these measures and protect critical family planning services.
Ballots will be mailed at the end of this week. We are ramping up our efforts to ensure voters understand why they need to vote YES on Measures 66 & 67.

Planned Parenthood will host a Voter Education Phone Drive in Portland to help make sure that we WIN on January 26th. We want to reach over 10,000 voters and we need YOU to help us reach our goal.

Please sign up to participate in the Voter Education Phone Drive by emailing kyle.white@ppcw.org or by calling 503-280-6150 x2173. The dates and times of the phone drive are listed below.

We will follow up with you to provide location information.
Wednesday, 1/13 from 5:30pm-8:30pm
Thursday, 1/14 from 5:30pm-8:30pm
Tuesday, 1/19 from 5:30pm-8:30pm
