You, me, and AOC
Two of the issues I have been most focused on this Congress are addressing the housing crisis and our climate emergency. These priorities are inextricably linked and both disproportionally impact Black, Indigenous and other communities of color here in Oregon and in other parts of the country. In fact, one of the people I have worked most closely on these issues with is Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York.
While our Congressional districts may be thousands of miles apart, housing and environmental justice is a priority in both and we have worked together in the halls of Congress to address these issues and fight for restorative justice.
Next week, I’d like to invite you to join me, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, and attendees from both our districts for a joint virtual town hall as we discuss these issues. The event will take place on Thursday, October 15 at 4:00 PM PDT via Zoom. We just ask that you register here.
I look forward to discussing the ongoing fight for housing and environmental justice and anything else you might want us to consider. I hope you will join us.
What: Virtual town hall on housing and environmental justice
Who: U.S. Representatives Earl Blumenauer (OR-3) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14)
