Sitting in the packed and stuffy meeting room where the Corvallis City Council met on this smoky evening, I realized what a pretty big “ask” it was to request a silent presence at Council tonight. 40 of our colleagues and their families stood, sat on the floor, and filled every spare seat.  Wearing green buttons and shirts, we proudly signaled our willingness to be stronger together! There will be more posts to read and more “asks” too.  Yet for now, please simply realize that your presence tonight was very much appreciated! Thank you for encouraging each other to attend, and if you were only able to be there in spirit, thank you as well! This is solidarity in action! Again, thank you for your time!

Most Sincerely,
~ Ruth Rose Hennessey
