Rep. Evans walked the walk at Keep Families Together Rally

All across this country, people rallied on June 30 to Keep Families Together.

Oregon was no exception. It was a stunning demonstration. Hundreds gathered here in Salem, including a great line-up of speakers who sought to inspire the crowd to work for change.

As the country heads toward the 2018 mid-term elections, Americans like myself are watching to see who will come out and stand with us on the important issues.

As a constituent in House District 20, I was so proud and inspired to see my state Rep. Paul Evans speak.

He noted that our nation is greatest when we reject fear and prejudice and instead follow our “better angels.” Our country is strongest, he said, when we work together.

He implored everyone to reject the tyranny of the current administration and to work for an America that embraces dignity, equality, and freedom.

It was not just his words at the rally that inspired me; it has also been his actions over time.

I will continue to support Rep. Evans because I believe that with his help, we can work toward our shared goals and make a positive impact in our communities and across Oregon.
