Let me ask you this: when was the last time you had a real conversation about politics where you actually came away feeling more connected than you started it?
Been a while?
Well, let’s change that. Here at Forward, we are dedicated to creating opportunities for civic engagement that spark joy.
So we have decided to create some space for Forwardists to talk to one another across the state about the upcoming election.
The core question we want to discuss is "Which candidate best represents our values as the Oregon chapter of the Forward Party?"
You are invited to have your say, listen to others, and hopefully learn something useful.
Want to be a part of this? Please RSVP if you're interested!
Tuesday, 25 October, 5:30pm - 6:30pm
Online: FWD Discord voice channel called Oregon General. RSVP for info on how to join.
