On Friday, Jan. 20, Mid-Valley Health Care Advocates, along with many other groups working toward social justice, will be part of a march and short rally that is billed as a Community Organizing event. It will begin on the OSU campus around 3:00 at the Student Experience Center Plaza, under the big translucent canopy, just east of the Memorial Union on campus (Jefferson street).  The parade will proceed toward and along Monroe, weaving around town, and stopping briefly at Central Park. As dusk approaches, all will be welcomed at the Odd Fellows Hall on 2nd Street for hot cider, conversation, and networking. Titled “Inaugurate Social and Eco Justice,” the event's goal is to showcase issues that our community cares about and will be working on in 2017.

MVHCA members will meet on Monroe at 11th Street at 3:10 to distribute “Health Care For All Oregon” and “Mid-Valley Health Care Advocates” banners and gown-plus-bun costumes so we will be ready to join the procession. Please meet us there as we move into a season of activism! E-mail Bobbi if you have questions, rlhall@peak.org.

"White Like Me" Coming to Corvallis and Albany

"White Like Me" is an exploration of race and racism in the US through the lens of whiteness and white privilege. It reassesses the American ideal of meritocracy and the claims that we've entered a post-racial society. Discussion afterward will be led by Ann Mbacke.

The film will also be screened at the Albany Public Library (2450 14th Ave SE) on October 11, 2015 at 4pm. Discussion afterward will be led by Javier Cervantes. Please see the FB event for that screening; Share & Invite to both!

This film serves as an introduction to Tim Wise's live lecture October 14, 2015 in Albany at LBCC's Forum Lecture Hall (F104) at 2pm and in Corvallis at OSU's LaSells Stewart Center at 7pm.

All of the events are free and the public is very welcome.
