Upcoming Meetings and Events:
April 22, 2017 – People’s March for Science: The People’s March for Science in Newport will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017. It’s a one-mile walk, a rally afterwards, and a speaker — Dr. Rick Spinrad, formerly the Chief Scientist at NOAA! Now we’re fundraising! We need about $2,000.00 for costs of permit, chairs and tent, portapotties — all the good stuff that doesn’t come free. Donate here! Click on the link, scroll down the page, and info about the March and a donate button will appear. TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This will be the program topic for our Tuesday, April 25 chapter meeting, 6:00 pm, at Atonement Lutheran Church, 2315 N Coast Hwy, Newport, OR 97365. An article in the Eugene Weekly (Feb. 16, 2017) discusses how Melissa’s law is working to address Oregon’s rape kit problem: Tracking the Backlog and Searching for Justice.
