Door Knock with SURJ!
Vermont Hills United Methodist Church

Please join our 7th door knock! Actions like this are a great way to practice having conversations about racial justice with other white folks, which is something our POC partners have asked SURJ to do.

This doorknock we're adding something new-- action! We'll be supporting the family of Christopher Kalonji, who was murdered by Clackamas County deputies last year in his home. At the door we'll ask people to sign a postcard to the Clackamas County District Attorney, in keeping with the request of Irene Kalonji, Christopher's mother.

At this doorknock we'll continue to sell Black Lives Matter yard signs to raise money for BLM Portland. In April 2016, SURJ National kicked off a yard sign campaign to mobilize white people to support the Black Lives Matter movement. They explain that the signs are "tools to initiate conversations around race in predominantly white communities." You can read more about the project here.

WHEN: Saturday, June 24th from 1 to 5 pm

WHERE: Meet at Vermont Hills United Methodist Church, 6053 SW 55th Drive, Portland

WHAT: We’ll start with a training, head off in pairs to canvass the Multnomah/Hillsdale neighborhood, and return to the training location to debrief. If you have knocked before and want to skip the training, plan to arrive at 2:00 pm and let us know your plans in advance.

RSVP: Please let us know if you’re planning to show up! Follow this link to rsvp by Thursday, June 22nd:

Introduction to Restorative Justice in Schools
through Resolutions Northwest

Explore why and how Restorative Justice can be a promising alternative to exclusionary practices.

Monday and Tuesday, June 26th and 27th, from 9:00am – 4:00pm

“It was a great balance of circle, lecture, group work and movement. The topic had me 100% engaged.”

Restorative Justice is a valuable alternative to exclusionary practices. It seeks to restore community and repair harm while holding all involved accountable. Unacceptably high school push-out rates disproportionately affect students of color, students with disabilities and youth who identify as LGBT.

Restorative Justice is not a prescribed program but a philosophy based on community building and repairing harm. We will discuss the components that can make the approach successful such as circles, restorative inquiries and dialogues, community service and mediation. We look at possibilities for implementation that are open to classroom teachers and other school personnel. While doing so we will keep a keen eye on equity issues. The workshop will be a combination of lecture, discussions, videos and hands-on practice activities.

This training focuses on Restorative Justice in schools. We particularly invite and encourage school counselors, behavior specialists, administrators, teachers, security personnel, and those studying to work in schools.

Resolutions Northwest facilitates honest dialogue to resolve conflict and advance racial and social justice.

CANCELLED: History Pub: The Rise of the KKK in Southern Oregon
Kennedy School

CANCELLED


In 1921, Luther Powell, a recruitment officer for the Ku Klux Klan, arrived in southern Oregon to recruit new members for the Klan. His visit marked the beginning of a short, but disturbing, period in Oregon’s history. Historian Jeff LaLande will speak about the Klan’s influence in southern Oregon during the 1920s, the 1923 Alien Property Act prohibiting immigrants from owning or leasing land, and more about this turbulent time.

Jeff LaLande, a retired U.S. Forest Service archaeologist, has lived in the Rogue Valley for over 45 years. He received a Ph.D. in history from the University of Oregon in 1993. LaLande has taught at Southern Oregon University and is the author of a number of several books and numerous articles.

About History Pub: Join us for beer and history, sponsored by the Oregon Historical Society, Holy Names Heritage Center, and McMenamins, in which you'll hear lively local or regional history while you enjoy a frosty pint or two of handcrafted ale.

Clinton Resistance Series presents FAME for Outside the Frame
Clinton Street Theater

Seven classes a day and a hot lunch. That's what New York City's High School for the Performing Arts guarantees. Stardom? That's something the school's teenage musicians, actors, dancers and dreamers strive for. Fame sings the body electric, celebrating the growing-up process of honing talent, confronting realities, finding love, living life.

Director Alan Parker (Evita, The Commitments) brings an energetic style to the crisscrossing stories of students (including future Academy Award winner Irene Cara, Paul McCrane (ER), Barry Miller (Saturday Night Fever) and two who returned in the later TV series, Gene Anthony Ray and Lee Curreri). Nominated for six Academy Awards, Fame won Oscars for its dynamic score and title tune.

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Outside the Frame, which was founded with the idea of helping homeless youth value themselves as productive members of society. OTF partners with excellent social service organizations to provide a much-needed creative outlet, technological training, and a sense of success that is contagious and visible to the public.

To thrive, young people need more than their basic needs met, and OTF offers a model educational and vocational program, where young people create films about issues that matter to them and share them with the public.

Program graduates have gone on to complete their GED, enroll in college, actively pursue employment and independent living, and make movies.


Outside the Frame changes the way homeless and marginalized youth see and are seen through film.

Clinton Resistance Series shows a free movie each Monday at 7pm. All donations collected at the door go to support a different weekly non-profit

Patricia Kullberg reads On the Ragged Edge of Medicine at Powell's
Powell's Books

Patricia Kullberg will read from and sign copies of her new book, On the Ragged Edge of Medicine, at Powell's City of Books in Portland, Oregon.

On the Ragged Edge of Medicine offers a unique and personal glimpse into a medical practice for the homeless and urban poor in Portland, Oregon. Told through fifteen patient vignettes and drawn from the author’s decades of experience on the front lines, this revealing memoir illuminates the impact of poverty on the delivery of health services and the ways in which people adapt and survive (or don’t survive) in conditions of abuse and deprivation. Kullberg’s stories show the direct and sometimes devastating effects of poverty on personal health, poignantly demonstrating that medicine is as much a social enterprise as a scientific one.

This collection of narratives is filled with questions about the realities people face in their everyday lives and the inadequacies of medicine to remedy them. A life-saving procedure is refused without explanation; an agoraphobic woman suffers silently and fails to cope; an accidental overdose takes another life. Delving into her daily interactions with patients, Kullberg muses on the impact of scarce resources, the ways she managed to succeed, the fall-out of her own mistakes, and the strategies she used to keep her sanity.

Written for anyone interested in the limits and possibilities of medicine within a context of social inequity, On the Ragged Edge of Medicine draws the reader into the big tragedies, small victories, and everyday mishaps of medicine when ministering to the destitute.

Food Workers Resist: Storytelling About Race, Food, and Identity
The Headwaters Theatre

Is food a political and moral topic? Who gets to eat what, who makes it, and how it's delivered are affected by gender, race, class, ethnicity, and this nation's history. Food Workers Resist is a one-time event, in the style of the Moth Story Slam, to tell these stories.

Proceeds go to Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization, a humanitarian organization dedicated to serve immigrants and refugees.

As the White House administration's attempts to silence, criminalize, and dehumanize members of our community, we give voice to untold stories of race, class, gender, and food.

Mail Night: CR PDX & Call to Safety/Stroll PDX
In Other Words Feminist Community Center

Call to Safety and Stroll PDX are partnering with Critical Resistance Portland for a joint solidarity letter & postcard writing night.

Call to Safety/ Stroll PDX & CR PDX believe that the Prison Industrial Complex is a source of immense harm in our communities and we want to bring awareness to the many ways in which our loved ones and community members are criminalized and caged for simply surviving. We'll be highlighting sex workers at this event as one the groups highly targeted and criminalized by policing and the prison industrial complex.

Please join us for a night of solidarity post card & letter writing to both Stroll PDX/Call to Safety's list of nationally imprisoned sex workers & CR PDX's list of folks in Oregon and Washington prisons. We'll have letters to respond to and postcards and message templates for folks to use as well as more information on how to get involved in supporting our shared work of supporting those most impacted by the prison industrial complex and working towards PIC abolition.

Transportation: On street parking is available near event site. There is no off street parking or nearby dedicated disability parking spot unfortunately. The #4, #44, #72, and #6 all run nearby the event location.

Accessibility: In Other Words is not a scent free space but is low scent and we'll provide scent free handsoap for the event.

There are no stairs and the floor is mostly level hardwood with a slight rise/ramp up in to the main event space.

About CR: Critical Resistance seeks to build an international movement to end the Prison Industrial Complex by challenging the belief that caging and controlling people makes us safe. We believe that basic necessities such as food, shelter, and freedom are what really make our communities secure. As such, our work is part of global struggles against inequality and powerlessness. The success of the movement requires that it reflect communities most affected by the PIC. Because we seek to abolish the PIC, we cannot support any work that extends its life or scope.

About Call to Safety: Working to fulfill our mission of ending domestic and sexual violence by providing confidential support services and education to empower our community, Call to Safety provides a comprehensive 24/7 crisis line, follow-up advocacy for survivors, support groups, community outreach and education, and sexual assault medical advocacy. We can support crisis line callers in any language through our international language bank, and connect survivors to local culturally-specific resources or co-advocacy. Call to Safety advocates provide every caller with a needs assessment, peer support, safety planning, crisis intervention, and information and referrals to community resources. Our advocates work with specific populations to provide culturally relevant and specialized services for survivors experiencing homelessness, survivors with developmental and intellectual disabilities, and sex workers. Sexual assault advocacy provides specialized services to survivors of sexual assault.

About Stroll PDX:

Stroll PDX is a volunteer based organization that emphasizes harm reduction, intersectional feminism, and grass root community outreach. We focus on empowering sex workers of all forms through lobbying, organizing support groups, fundraising for legal resources, and offering clothing and food to houseless women, transgender individuals, and low income sex workers. We also publish Working it Portland, a Sex Worker run and written zine. While all individuals are welcome to volunteer we are determined to give leadership roles to Sex Workers and put the rights of POC Trans Sex workers at the forefront of our fight for sex workers rights.

Arabic Music & Its Secrets/On The Banks Of The Tigris
Clinton Street Theater

ON THE BANKS OF THE TIGRIS: an extraordinary story of cultural resilience and identity. When war and conflict dominate the news, this film reminds us that real heroes play music, tell stories, and, in this case, make films. Iraqi-Australian writer/ actor Majid Shokor fled Iraq during the war, but later learned an amazing secret about the music he loved as a child and which he heard in coffeehouses, on the radio and in the markets of Baghdad. At its heart, this is the story of culture triumphing over regime, presenting Iraq as a significant multicultural centre, where Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions were welded together in a unique Iraqi culture that today appears almost utopian. #kboo #iraq #oud #arabicmusic #jewishmusic Suggested admission $7-10, but no on turned away for lack of funds! Decoupling people from their culture is a perennial tactic in war. The millions of Syrian refugees now seeking asylum across Europe retain little of their material culture, and within Syria cultural material is targeted for destruction. But people’s stories, songs and music do not need suitcases to survive, and it is worth being reminded that war is transient, regimes pass, but culture and identity are shared, enduring and powerful constructions.

On the Banks of the Tigris (2015) – the product of 10 years of vision, belief, and sheer hard work by documentary filmmaker Marsha Emerman and Iraqi-Australian writer and actor Majid Shokor. The film chronicles Majid’s journey after fleeing Iraq to reconnect with the music he loved as a child and which he heard in coffeehouses, on the radio and in the markets of Baghdad.

Last month, the film was awarded Best Documentary Film at the Baghdad International Film Festival. The award celebrates the resilience, in the face of relentless attack, of the people who create, nurture and preserve cultural identity.

It explores the influence of Iraqi Jewish musicians in the cultural life of Iraq, charting their passage from Baghdad to Israel, from celebrity to anonymity. And it reflects on Majid’s own journey as a refugee from Saddam Hussein’s tyranny, and the journeys of so many like him.

In Australia, the memory of the music of his childhood leads Majid to explore its history and to uncover the extraordinary truth that much of this music, still loved by Iraqis, was composed and performed by Iraqi Jews. This revelation takes Majid from Australia to Israel, Europe and Iraq to meet Iraqi-Jewish musicians, and other great Iraqi musicians, and to learn their stories.

Kawkab Hamza, one of Iraq’s most famous songwriters in the 1960s, explains how the then Vice President, Saddam Hussein, contrived to erase the names of Jewish composers and other musicians unsympathetic to the regime. Refusing Saddam Hussein’s “invitation” in 1973 to join a committee to “review Iraqi musical heritage”, Hamza fled the country, with devastating results for himself and his family.

Yair Dalal and Majid Shokor. Fruitful Films. In Israel Majid hears acclaimed composer, violinist, oud player, and singer Yair Dalal. Born in Israel to Iraqi-Jewish parents, Dalal performs traditional Iraqi music as well as his own compositions and teaches Iraqi music to young Israelis. “Arab” music, once dismissed in Israel, is now all the rage, an irony not lost on Dalal or those students from Arab-Jewish backgrounds.

Ahmed Mukhtar master oud player. Fruitful Films. In the UK, Majid meets master oud player Ahmed Mukhtar, a composer and recording artist, born in Baghdad but a political refugee in the UK where he teaches oud and Arabic music theory at the University of London.

On the Banks of the Tigris is an extraordinary story of cultural resilience and identity. When war and conflict dominate the news, this film reminds us that real heroes play music, tell stories, and, in this case, make films.

Interrupting Racism Actionshop - New Location: Multnomah Friends Meeting House
Resolutions Northwest

LOCATION CHANGE: Now at Multnomah Friends Meeting House, 4312 SE Stark

Registration required: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/interrupting-racism-5/


Imagine a world where when racism arises we take action.

Racism is all around us. It lives in the DNA of every system and institution in the United States, and here in Portland. This Actionshop is focused on interpersonal racism, within the context of systemic and institutional oppression. We will explore the way racism arises in our everyday interactions, and offer tools and practice for interrupting racism.

We’ll provide a historically and contextually grounded space to talk deeply about racism and the evolution of Racial Codes. But we won’t stop there! Simply talking about racism is not enough to dismantle the power structures that uphold the racial order. At the same time, creating systemic change requires interrupting the learned and daily behaviors that reinforce racism to move toward building healthy communities.

A note from the trainers: For many Black and Brown people in our community, nothing has changed. For others, especially for many white people, the last Presidential election and events such as the May 26 white-supremacist attack here in Portland have increased their motivation to find out what they can do. The Interrupting Racism Actionshop is not a response to these specific events. This is not a training in self-defense or nonviolent resistance. We will continue to focus the training, as we always have, on internal, interpersonal, organization, and systemic racism and the work we need to do as individuals to change these systems.

Arresting Power Screening, benefits NAACP Portland
Leaven Community

ARRESTING POWER documents the history of conflict between the Portland police and community members throughout the past fifty years. The film features personal stories of resistance told by victims of police misconduct, the families of people who were killed by police, and members of Portland’s reform and abolition movements. Utilizing meditative footage taken at sites of police violence, experimental filmmaking techniques, and archival newsreel, Arresting Power creates a space for understanding the impacts of police violence and imagining a world without police.

This film provides a historical and political analysis of the role of the police in contemporary society and the history of policing in the United States. It provides a framework for understanding the systems of social control in Portland with its history of exclusion laws, racial profiling, gentrification practices and policing along lines of race and class. It serves to uncover Portland’s unique history of police relations and community response.

$10 at the door. Proceeds to benefit NAACP Portland Chapter.

Workshop: Racial Microaggression in Clinical Practice
through Catholic Charities of Oregon

Each one-day workshop will be held from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm at Catholic Charities Clark Family Center. MONDAY'S WORKSHOP IS REPEATED ON TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY.

Racial Microaggressions are defined as “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults toward people of color”. Racial Microaggressions are the result of unconscious or implicit bias that seeps into interactions with marginalized people. These microaggressions have deep and detrimental impacts on the mental and physical health of people of color and they have enormous impact on the way in which people of color interact with mental health treatment and services.

This training will support clinicians in recognizing and stopping implicit bias that affects the way in which they engage in clinical practice with clients of color. It will help clinicians to improve their clinical relationship with clients through the reduction of implicit bias interactions for overall improved interventions and outcomes based in equity and social justice.

Benefits:

  • Enhanced clinical rapport with clients.
  • Long term engagement with clients of color.
  • Overall improvement of services to clients from communities of color.
  • Certificate offered - C.E.U. (Continuing Educational Units) through the National Association of Social Workers.
  • Beneficial for developmental and personal growth goals

Presenters:

Angie Mejia is a doctoral candidate in the department of sociology at Syracuse University. Her current research encompasses immigration, mental health, ethnicity, bio/psychopolitics, and citizenship by looking specifically at U.S. Latinas’ experiences with depression and depression treatment.

Kat Kelley, MSW, is the Director of Programs and Integration with Catholic Charities of Oregon. Her areas of practice and expertise include trauma, mental health, domestic and sexual violence, immigration, race equity and community organizing. Ms. Kelley has almost 20 years of experience in anti-racist social movements and building white ally identities. She is a clinician and macro practice social worker who focuses on anti-oppressive practice and social justice.

Voices 2017: Nothing About Us Without Us
Curious Comedy Theater

About the theme: inspired by the activism of advocates in the community of people with disabilities, "Nothing About Us Without Us" represents that OPAL pushes for self-determination and inclusion of all people in the policies which affect us - low income people, people of color, people with disabilities and more. All OPAL, BRU, and YEJA campaigns are led by highly-impacted people, and the leadership of people with disabilities in Bus Riders Unite also inspired us to choose this theme.

Every year, OPAL hosts Voices of the People’s History, an event that celebrates diverse movement leaders by sharing their stories, in their own words. Members of our community perform readings of notable speeches and essays from inspiring figures past and present, a radically-empowering opportunity to hear the echoes of history in the present day. It’s a yearly gathering that brings us closer together while strengthening our resolve to fight for racial, social and economic justice. It’s important for us to amplify movement leaders, because we know that nobody else can tell our stories. We have to do this for ourselves.

Through Voices, we emphasize that our struggles are a continuation of past struggles – and justice has always had champions. All modern organizers stand on the shoulders of the giants whose words and voices we celebrate.

The 2017 Voices event returns the Curious Comedy Theater on the evening of July 11th. Curious Comedy Theatre, located in heart of Vanport Square, is accessible by public transportation via buses #6, 44, 72, and is wheelchair accessible. Parking is available at no charge behind Vanport Square. Bike parking is available outside of the theatre doors and outside Old Town Pizza around the corner. Curious Comedy is an all-ages venue, but tickets are required for children who need to sit in their own seat.

The hosted hors d’oeuvres will feature tasty and filling selections for most dietary needs: gluten free, vegetarian/vegan. Please let us know in advance of any considerations which you may need to make your evening enjoyable and comfortable with us!

Tickets go on sale April 19th, and will sell out well in advance of the event. Mark your calendars!

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information call Shawn at 503 774 4503 or email shawn@opalpdx.org

Accessibility: Curious Comedy Theater is ADA accessible on the ground floor including the bathroom.


OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon - OPAL is a community organizing & advocacy organization working with low-income & communities of color to educate, engage & empower.

Bus Riders Unite, a project of OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon, is a membership organization that represents transit-dependent people. When we rely on public transit, we’re likely also reliant upon availability of housing choices, alternative transit options (like bike and pedestrian infrastructure), and to have less access to green spaces. Transportation is at the center of our lives, connecting us to the places where we live, work, learn, pray and play. BRU doesn’t only address transportation, but rather brings the perspective of transit-dependent people to the decision-making that affects all matter of policy related to the built environment.

Youth Environmental Justice Alliance (YEJA) develops low-income youth and youth of color leaders through political education, campaign organizing, and skill-building to address issues of Environmental Justice. The leadership program creates a space for marginalized youth to take action on the issues that directly impact them and their communities.

White Artists Don't Have to Make Work About Racial Identity
PSU Smith Center

White Artists Don't Have to Make Work About Racial Identity | Rakeem Cunningham On display: July 5–28, 2017 Reception: Friday, July 14, 6–8 p.m.

For Los Angeles based artist Rakeem Cunningham, texture has always functioned as a gateway to fantasy. Whether the portal is flowing fabric, animated seamless paper, or free flowing plastic wrap, the dents, crinkles, and crevices of a material’s surface is employed to unmask or cover up self-truths. In 2013, Cunningham came out as a gay man, opening up a whole new world and with it newfound levels of oppression, heartbreak, and discrimination.

This exhibition, entitled “White Artists Don’t Have to Make Work About Racial Identity” navigates the ways in which desire, oppression, humanization, sympathy, self-hate, and emotional apathy are imposed on queer black men through the media, family, romance, and false narratives of hyper-masculinity.

BIO:

Rakeem Cunningham is a visual artist and videographer based out of Los Angeles, California. Born in 1992, his work explores themes of self-identity, queer politics, identity politics, self-acceptance, and the navigation of body politics under the gay landscape. Cunningham studied Design and Media Arts at UCLA, and frequently collaborates and showcases his work with queer/POC brands and figures such as the LGBT center, Dawn Richard, the FADER, the UCLA new Wight Gallery, Cakeboy Magazine, and the Tenth Zine.

The Littman and White Galleries are student-run exhibition spaces at Portland State University. Our mission is to provide the tools for a critical experience of visual culture through direct exposure to a comprehensive program of contemporary art for students and community members. We envision the Littman and White Galleries as centers for cultural enrichment where an indispensable art experience is accessible to all perspectives and levels of education.
