Vote Yes on Measure 97
PHONE BANKING AND CANVASSING OPPORTUNITIES:
The GBEA is scheduled for phone banks on October 25, 26 and 27 from 4pm - 8pm and canvassing on November 5th from 10am - 2pm.
These will both be at the UniServ Office at 501 NE Hood St., Suite 340, Gresham, Oregon. Dinner/snacks will be provided.
These are our last chances to get the money we need to help our students succeed! It's up to us! Either we ring phones and/or knock on doors across Oregon, or we are going to see $1.5 billion cut from the budget next year. Can you imagine LARGER CLASS SIZES and FEWER resources? I can't either! Let's help pass Measure 97!
