PDX NAACP endorses
The results of the January special election in Oregon could change your health insurance. Find out more in KGW's recent article on Measure 101.
Measure 101 stabilizes premiums and saves people who buy their own coverage an average of $300 per year. If you buy your own healthcare coverage, the Yes for Healthcare campaign has an important
message for you:
It's no secret that costs keep increasing for people who buy their own coverage. Earlier this year there was also a risk that some health plans might pull out of Oregon's rural communities altogether because of volatility in the market.
The Portland NAACP General Session meetings are held every 4th Saturday of each month from 12-2pm at Concordia University, Luther Hall, (2811 NE Holman St, Portland, OR 97211) 12-2pm. After a short business meeting from noon to 12:30pm, the member social will commence. Current and prospective members are welcome to join.

Cities in the Portland Metro area, as well as across the nation, are experiencing similar concerns, including economic equity, police accountability, and developing our up and coming leaders. This has been our work for decades, and we continue to push forward. The Portland NAACP strives to maintain visibility and participation in activities of vital importance to all people.
We thank all of you who have taken the time to give of yourself and resources to represent the organization and the people of this community. The protest marches, rallies, community meetings, advisory council committees, social events, political involvement, program development, youth participation, media productions, community, organizational support, and grass-roots activism have served to revitalize and re-energize our members, partners, and allies.
