Celebrate Independence Day by Being an Active Citizen

Center for Inquiry is more than just a community of like minded people. We also have an Office of Public Policy to fight for our values at the national level. CFI Portland is trying to create something similar to fight for our values at the local level. If you would like to help us, I'd encourage you to join our CFI Portland Advocacy group.

http://groups.google.com/group/CFIPDX-advocacy

This is a google group email listserv that will help the CFI members interested in advocacy communicate. It allows an online space to research and discuss issues we should track, how to tackle them strategically, and when to involve the larger community to take action such as letter writing campaigns, talking to their local school boards, or meeting with their local representatives. If you are interested in being someone involved in this strategic planning, or would like to be one of the people who meets with your local representative, then please request membership. We are looking for 2 to 5 people from each congressional district in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho to join the group. Parents of local school districts are also very important. We already had great success due to a couple proactive CFI members in the Sherwood School district.

I hope you had a fun 4th of July!? I hope you share my sentiments that this is a country worth fighting for.
