It is sad that Valentine’s Day – a day dedicated to love – is also a day that symbolizes the tragedy of gun violence in our country. As students and families in Parkland, Florida, remember the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School a year ago, we call for policies that could prevent more gun-related tragedies. Gun rights come with responsibilities for keeping guns out of the hands of people – including children – who could harm themselves or others. See our Highlights video on Gun Safety and the legislation the Oregon League is supporting this year HB 2505, HB 2251 and SB 501).
On Valentine’s Day, the League of Women Voters turns 99. Help us celebrate this really big birthday!

You can donate through Facebook. Or click on one of the Donate buttons on the right.
Please send us some birthday love. Gifts of any size will help us make democracy work right here in Multnomah County through our fiercely non-partisan, proudly grassroots action. THANK YOU!
