Portland: Job Announcements for Pro-Fluoridation Group

Source: Everyone Deserves Healthy Teeth Coalition | January 24th, 2013
Location: United States, Oregon

Note from FAN
The jobs described below are designed to get the May 2013 fluoridation referendum passed.  Clean Water Portland, without the big money of the fluoridationists, desperately needs residents and volunteers to work for the public interest to block this referendum.

The Everyone Deserves Healthy Teeth Coalition supports water fluoridation for the city of Portland. Their members represent health, education, social justice, business, and community organizations dedicated to ending Oregon’s dental health crisis. Every major national health and medical institution that has a position on the topic, supports water fluoridation. Raising awareness with integrity and directing Portlanders to credible science is our goal.
