CANN is continuously working to secure social justice and enhance the possibilities for COFA citizens nationwide. Our latest project is securing fundamental health care rights, as per the signed Compact of Free Association, between the United States of America and the COFA Nations.
CANN has recently introduced a Health Bill in the Oregon Legislation, HB 2522, that will move this process forward, by establishing funding for an office within the Oregon Health Authority that shall promote access to health care for islanders and ensure that islanders have the same access to health care as United States citizens residing in Oregon.
