Oregon’s Legislative Session starts TODAY! This is a short 35 day session so there will be a lot happening very quickly. The GO Project will help you to be informed and engaged throughout the session.
The GO! Project is launching an advocacy campaign which urges legislators to Take Note of Oregonians with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. The GO Project will distribute printed sticky notes to legislators this session and together we will encourage legislators to Take Note!
