Hi again!

Now that we finally got the correct URL to you to find our candidate 
questionnaire on peace issues


we also have been tracking the progress of a Human Rights Pledge put 
forward by many of our community allies.

On May 2, Portland Democratic Socialists of America posted the results of 
their pledge on Facebook.

Note that the candidates who responded positively are reflected in an 
image you need to look at on the facebook page (and not mentioned in the 
post itself). I have typed them in below because the graphic doesn't 
reflect which seat people are running for (except one Mayoral candidate).

The text of the pledge is also embedded in the facebook post as a graphic.
