2019 Day at the Capitol

Lend your voice and stand with Portland Community College at the 2019 PCC Day at the Capitol!

Tuesday, March 12, 2019
Oregon State Capitol Building, Salem, Oregon
8:30am to 4pm

Join us in Salem for PCC's Day at the Capitol for your chance to tell your "PCC story" to legislators and thank them for investing in higher education.

As the largest institution of higher education in the state, PCC creates opportunities for nearly 73,000 students each year – many of whom are the first in their families to attend college. If your life has been changed by PCC, we hope you’ll come and share your experiences with our state government.

Free transportation will be provided to the Capitol from the Sylvania Campus and back.
