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.
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.
