Climate Day of Action Schedule

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

Change in Schedule

Rather than meeting to register and rally on the Capitol Steps, we meet at 10:00 am at the Micah Building, 600 State St, Salem, OR 97301 (2nd floor) across the street from the First United Methodist Church.  Parking recommendation is still Macy’s Salem Center, 400 High St NE, Salem, OR 97301.

Macy’s 400, High Street.

Rumor:  The House and Senate Chamber gallery schedules have changed.  Rather than splitting up and some going to each Gallery, the Senate Gallery contingent will be the first 50 to arrive at the Micah Building.  The House Gallery contingent will be assigned for a 2:00 pm. visit.
