Oregon PSR is celebrating our 40th year of work for a more healthy, peaceful, and just world in 2021. We began from the powerful vision of our founders who sat on Dr. Karen Steingart’s living room floor and strategized about how a health message could help prevent nuclear war. Over the next forty years, our members, volunteers, and donors contributed their passion and leadership to the organization, bringing a broad public health frame to issues such as environmental justice, gun violence, and climate health, learning and growing along the way.
We hope that you will join us online on Thursday, November 18th from 6:30 until 8:00 PM (PST) in celebrating our 40th anniversary! Though the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately prohibits us from safely gathering in person, we look forward to celebrating virtually with you.
Our celebration will include the premiere of a new video highlighting some of Oregon PSR’s work over the last four decades, live music from guitarist Ben Graves, special messages from Senator Jeff Merkley and State Representative Khanh Pham, and a chance to bid on some fantastic auction items.
This online event is free to join, and donations to support our work are gratefully accepted. You can learn about 40th Anniversary Cultivation Circle sponsorship opportunities here, and we hope that you will consider sponsoring this event, our flagship fundraising event of the year, to empower Oregon PSR’s work now and in the years to come.
We also hope that you’ll consider participating in our online auction, which is now live and open for bidding! We have some really great auction items, including stays at vacation homes, kayak and guitar lessons, original art, small-batch wine, and more. We hope that you will be as excited by these auction items as we are, and that you’ll bid generously to support Oregon PSR’s work.
We look forward to celebrating our 40 years of work with you on November 18th!
