4th Annual Legislative Breakfast

Pat Farr, Senator James I. Manning Jr., Senator Lee Beyer, Representative Nancy Nathanson, Representative Julie Fahey, and Representative John Lively are seated at a table with a red table cloth where they are having a discussion.

This morning United Way of Lane County hosted their 4th Annual Legislative Breakfast. The breakfast is an opportunity for non-profit leaders and state legislators to meet and discuss current issues affecting Lane County residents, and work being done in legislation that may impact our work here in the community.

During the breakfast and panel discussion, Lane County legislators shared their perspectives from the most recent past session, touching on gains as well as issues they will continue to tackle. Together with the nonprofit leaders, the panel focused on three primary issues for our communities: housing and homelessness, issues surrounding access to quality healthcare, and equity, which included a discussion of how to create opportunities and avenues for those who have the least access.

We're grateful for our panel speakers Senator Lee Beyer, Senator James I. Manning, Jr., Representative Nancy Nathanson, Representative Julie Fahey, and Represen- tative John Lively. Thank you to Pat Farr, Lane County Commissioner, who facilitated the discussion, and to everyone from the community who attended this morning's breakfast and conversation!
