DEADLINE: OLCC All-Ages Reform

02:02AM on Monday November 12, 2007

Just a reminder that Tuesday, November 13 at 5pm is the deadline for submitting feedback to the OLCC about their proposed rule changes that would allow music venues and other art spaces to admit minors and still sell alcohol (i.e. stay in business). Send your emails in support of the changes to: jennifer.hunstman@state.or.us

For more information on this issue, or to see a sample email, check out www.pdxpopnow.com/olcc

Opening more music and cultural events to people under 21 is the right thing to do for young people, local musicians, venues, and our community as a whole.

These emails will play an absolutely critical role in the OLCC’s ultimate decision to adopt or reject the proposed changes, so take a minute to write in today.

Additionally, in an effort to provide the young people of Portland with an opportunity to speak for themselves on this matter, the Multnomah Youth Commission is holding a public forum to accept testimony on the proposed OLCC changes
from 4-5:30pm
on Monday, November 12
at Portland City Hall in Council Chambers
(1221 SW 4th Ave.).
All are welcome to attend, but priority will be given to those under 21.
Spread the word!
