2014 Annual Gala Nov. 17th @ Holocene

Gala Featured ImageIn just a few weeks, Oregon Working Families will be capping off the year at our Annual Gala. We have a lot to celebrate this year. Together, we moved the Pay It Forward Pilot into the 2015 Legislative session, reached over 10,000 party voter registrations, and helped make Earned Sick Days a reality in Eugene. Once the dust settles on the elections, we are anticipating celebrating a slew of Working Families nominees!

We invite you to join us on Monday, November 17th, 2014, 6PM at Holocene Bar (1001 SE Morrison St. Portland.) There will be food, drinks and dancing!

We are also proud to announce our 2014 Oregon Working Families Honorees. Each of this year’s honorees are champions for working Oregonians who have worked to increase access to public higher education, defend the rights of workers and expand our Democracy.

This year’s honorees are:
