Experience life in a homeless camp for one or two hours
Type: Offer something
What we'll do
We'll visit the homeless camp downtown near the riverfront. Several long-time residents there have agreed to share their experiences there and show us what life is really like for them. Reading about the issue or passing it on the street is one thing. Hearing it directly from the source is something else.
We’ll discuss what happens when Salem conduct their routine sweep or purges. Shopping carts, sleeping bags and tents are lost, and they are back to square one. And we’ll have time anything else residents would like to say or you would like to know.
The average person doesn’t understand what it is really like to live in a homeless camp. See the reality of it!

Sell meat from animals that were raised under just conditions
Factory farms raise animals in abusive conditions. Billions of chickens, pigs and cows are exploited in ways that we wouldn't condone if we were given a choice. We realize that these issues can't be resolved all at once. Instead, we are asking you to select one way to start selling meat from animals that were treated ethically.
Prices should be fair, transparent, and in proportion to costs
Prices should not be excessive, deceptive, hidden or manipulative. They should be based on actual expenditures and costs and what the patient can pay. Do not take advantage of a captive audience. Charges should not be unexpected. The business model should not depend on charging customers for services they do not ultimately receive or requiring unnecessary updates.
