Spring is such a wonderful time to celebrate women’s health. And that’s just what the Lane County Leadership & Advocacy Team is looking to do at Uncorked: Wine, Women & Song on Wednesday, April 9th at Territorial Vineyard & Wine Company in Eugene.
At this 21-and-over event, we’ll enjoy delicious wine and hors d’oeuvres while listening to the sweet serenade of Mood Area 52. Here is a description of the popular neo-tango ensemble:
Mood Area 52 started in 1998 as a Piazzolla-inspired neo-tango and silent film score ensemble. Since then, the group has morphed into an ensemble defined more by instrumentation and mood than genre. Their most recent releases, Company Town and 1952 Philanski House, blend roots rock, instrumental tango, jazz, blues, Balkan influences, ranchera, American folk, country, Brechtian cabaret and classical music.
Mood Area 52 has performed with The Squirrel Nut Zippers, Chuck Palhnuik, Rasputina, Devotchka, The Vagabond Opera and many other polite and brilliant musicians. They perform in venues ranging from clubs to festival stages to alzheimers wards, accompanying burlesque troops and providing original soundtracks to golden age films. Mood Area 52 has written and performed original soundtracks to F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu, the dystopian sci-fi classic La Jette, Sunset Boulevard, Buster Keaton’s films, the short films of Geoges Mellies, advertisements and television programs. They have been featured on NPR, Argentinian national public radio and Northwest public radio affiliates, including the theme music for KLCC’s News at Noon program.
There have been more attacks on our reproductive rights in the past three years than in the entire previous decade. In 2014, it’s time to fight back—by electing candidates who will stand up for our health. Please join us as we gear up our local advocacy team for a robust election year!

- All insurance plans will have to show the costs and what is covered in simple language and with no fine print.
Despite the obvious health and economic benefits of Obamacare, there are still politicians and bosses standing in the way. Politicians in Congress have repeatedly tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act and its historic benefits for millions of women. In addition, more than a dozen lawsuits brought by bosses of private companies who think they should be allowed to stand between a woman and her birth control are still making their way through the courts.
Meanwhile, opponents of women’s health are actively gathering signatures to place a measure on the 2014 ballot that would strip funding for abortion services from the lowest-income women in our state. We must stand strong against these continued attacks.
This is our opportunity to protect Oregonians by opposing limits on women’s health care, including birth control and safe, legal abortion. Please click here to sign the pledge!
