There was a CNBSeen event at the Clackamas County offices at 2051 Kaen Rd in Oregon City on Saturday, July 23rd from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The even, called "Together We Can" was sponsored by the Equity & Inclusion office and in conjunction with the Saturday Market near the Circle of Honor.
In 2017, Oregon State Police and Advance Auto Care co-launched their "Car Care" program. From the Counterman website, "When Oregon state troopers stop motorists for minor equipment violations, they’re offering them a voucher that provides a discount on automotive parts purchased at any Advance Auto Parts or participating Carquest Auto Parts store." Although neither OSP or Advanced Auto Parts say they will replace defective bulbs for motorists, this program does help them get a replacement. As far as we know, there are no similar programs for municipal or county law enforcement. For more information, contact OSP or Advanced Auto Parts, or visit https://www.counterman.com/oregon-state-police-advance-auto-parts-launch-car-care-program/
Both the Lents and Richmond neighborhoods have shown interest in hosting a CNBSeen event. The Lents event, right now, is a table event in April while the Richmond event will likely be a bulb changing event in May. More details to come.

but this tiny fix, with the community's help,
might address a LITTLE part of this big problem.
