    Dynamics of Poverty

    This training will help participants define poverty and explore its causes and effects. We will review national and local data on the demographics of people living in poverty as well as risk factors that can make one more vulnerable to economic instability. We will also explore the significance of the federal poverty line and social attitudes toward the poor and their implications for people living in poverty.

    This information will translate into implications for service providers who as result of this workshop will be better equipped to provide more responsive and relevant services, and have time to practice communication skills that are effective in working with people from all income backgrounds. Finally, participants will explore and identify opportunities to join in efforts to end poverty.

  • Benefit for Stroll

    Benefiting STROLL: A harm reduction, outreach, and education group run by and for sex workers.

    Stop in Thursday for shopping, snacks, refreshments, and raffle items while supporting our community.

    Stroll PDX is a grass roots group that emphasizes harm reduction and community outreach through an intersectional feminist lens. Stroll focuses on empowering all sex workers through diverse means: lobbying, support groups, fundraising, and (recognizing that the best way to empower people is by helping to make sure their basic needs are met so that they aren't forced into choices they don't want to make) offering food, clothing, hygiene, and first aid supplies to low income/houseless people.

    www.strollpdx.org

    Senate Bill 1693, SESTA/FOSTA, is a recent federal law aimed at curbing sex trafficking by holding online platforms accountable for the content their users post. Since the legal definition of sex trafficking is consistently conflated with consensual adult sex work, several websites used by sex workers have shut down, or began blocking access from the United States which takes away their ability to use the Internet and has increased the risks facing their community crippling efforts for harm reduction. Instead of addressing issues that lead to trafficking: homelessness, poverty and a broken foster care system, SESTA/FOSTA drastically limits the tools available to those who survive in the sex trade. Pushing workers further underground, they are easier targets and at higher risk of violence.

    At the November 15th event, there will be opportunities to make cash donations to Stroll PDX. If you cannot attend this event but would like to contribute, you can purchase items on their Amazon wishlist. https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/I0735NCXQ10G/ref=cm_sw_su_w Please let us know if you make a purchase from the Amazon list so we can measure our impact! (comment here or email mulla@pdx.edu) Thanks!

    This fundraising and awareness-building event is hosted by students in the Social Work graduate program at Portland State University.

  • Portland DSA Movie Night - PRIDE

    Portland DSA Movie Night Presents "Pride" at the Clinton Street Theater!

    Realising that they share common foes in Margaret Thatcher, the police and the conservative press, London-based gay and lesbian activists lend their support to striking miners in 1984 Wales.

    Tickets will be by donation on a sliding scale of $5-10 to help cover the screening's costs, but no one will be turned away! Collection drive for the Sexual and Gender Minority Youth Resource Center! To donate, please bring new hygiene items, new socks and underwear, gently used art supplies, musical instruments, board games and books for ages 16-24.

    Fur Free Friday 2018

    THIS EVENT IS RAIN OR SHINE! We will be outside for the entirety of the event. Please dress appropriately!

    Join us for the annual Fur Free Friday!

    We are speaking up for the animals killed not only for fur, but every animal who is killed for their skin. This includes animals whose skins are used for: fur, leather, wool, down, angora, silk, alpaca, cashmere, suede, and mohair

    We will gather at Nordstrom’s and hold space for these animals. We will then be marching to make their voices heard while some are welcome to stay at Nordstrom’s and hold signs and hand out literature.

    This is a nonviolent, love-based event. All are welcome! March chants may be loud for animals but you are welcome to bring them on a leash.

    More info will be announced as planning continues.

    We can't wait to see you!
