Dying for Health Care Rally / March --lives are on the line
Rep. Jaime Herrera-Beutler's Office, Vancouver

Join the Women's March call to action!

We’re hitting the streets to protect health care. We'll start at the office of Rep. Jaime Herrera-Beutler with a brief rally, then march to the Vancouver Farmer's Market. If clearance is obtained, we will stage a die-in along the designated free speech area of the market.

Congress is working to take away health coverage from 22 million Americans by repealing Obamacare. It will hurt everyone by stealing insurance, but women, transgender people, and marginalized communities will be hit the hardest. Republicans will soon vote on dropping coverage for mothers, people with disabilities, working families, and anyone who is vulnerable.

Although our protests scared them away from voting this week, Senate Republicans have been vowing to destroy Obamacare for years and they will be back!

On Saturday, July 29th, all across the country, hundreds of thousands of people will tell Senators NO to this attack on women, our families and our communities.

SWWAshingtonCAN - Born of the Women’s March and the Huddles that followed, we seek to promote change in our community through Education, Inspiration and Empowerment.

March for Freedom, Solidarity and Justice
Battleship Oregon Memorial Marine Park, 250 SW Naito

[endorsing organizations below]

On June 4th, Portland Stands United Against Hate, with the endorsement of 70+ community, faith, labor, and student organizations, peacefully rallied at City Hall with over 1,500 concerned residents to send a message to far right bigots, who were staging a “Trump Free Speech” rally across the street.

Although we successfully confronted their hatred on June 4th, the same group subsequently provoked violence at Portland’s June 17 Trans Pride march and staged a violent “Freedom March” on June 30th. This is not an isolated group. Rather, they represent an emboldening of the right-wing across this country, whose rhetoric and actions have been supported by an openly racist, misogynist, bigoted administration in the White House.

On Sunday, August 6th, these same extremists are staging a “Freedom March” on the waterfront at the Salmon Street fountain. Though they have softened their rhetoric, make no mistake, their plan is to instill fear and attack Portland’s Immigrant, Muslim, Jewish, Indigenous, Black and LGBTQ+ communities.

We are gathering in solidarity with communities who are under attack and calling on activists and concerned residents to join a peaceful mass mobilization on the Portland waterfront, in front of the Battleship Oregon Memorial (SW Pine) on Sunday, August 6th at 1:30 pm. We must continue to show up to prove that Portland stands united and will not tolerate white nationalism in any of its guises.

Clergy and People of Faith March for Justice
Terry Schrunk Plaza, 1200 SW 3rd

On Monday, August 28th, 2017, one thousand ministers of all denominations will convene in Washington, D.C. to reaffirm their commitment to the social justice movement and stand in solidarity with the spirit and legacy of Dr. King, on the anniversary of the March for Jobs & Justice. Our event in Portland will bring together Clergy and People of Faith of all traditions to recommit to being at the forefront of justice and civil rights, to call into accountability President Trump, Attorney General Sessions and all public officials, and to return to its rightful place in the words of Dr. King as the "headlight" in the struggle for justice. We are calling on religious leaders from ALL religions and community leaders to join us!

Rally/March Against White Nationalism
Terry Schrunk Plaza, 1200 SW 3rd

Portland Stands United Against Hate will be mobilizing again to confront a white nationalist gathering in our town. We intend to draw out thousands to discourage these racists and haters.

Joey Gibson’s “Patriot Prayer” is mobilizing on September 10th a “Portland Freedom March — Entire Nation” featuring Billy Sessions, a Confederate monument defender, who has been active in violent clashes with those trying to remove these symbols of slavery and racism.

The merging of the “old South” rebellion with “alt-right” white nationalism is an ominous development. Their plan is to instill fear and attack Portland’s Immigrant, Muslim, Jewish, Indigenous, Black and LGBTQ+ communities.

After the rally we will be marching to the Salmon St. Fountain. We will be collaborating with Portland's Resistance and are in communication with Rose City Antifa. We are committed to community safety and protecting marginalized communities. Ours will be a disciplined and secure event.

October Conference: Confronting the Far Right

“Patriot” rallies are not an isolated phenomenon. Rather, they represent an emboldening of the right-wing across this country, whose rhetoric and actions have been supported by an openly racist, misogynist, bigoted administration in the White House.

PSUAH plans to host a day long conference to include expert education on the white nationalist movement with extensive time for local groups and activists to integrate that learning into coherent strategies for building the Portland left as well as fighting the Right.

Stay tuned for further details.

Smoke on the Waterfront
Waterfront Park

On April 21st, the Saturday between 4/20 and Earth Day, we propose an OPEN CARRY WEED MARCH.

The industrial, economic, legal, and health benefits of cannabis legalization are now well-documented. To celebrate cannabis culture in our bioregion we are planning a public event to venerate the herb, as well as to thank those who have fought for legalization, as well as those working in the industry.

We also plan to exercise our freedom granted to us by the laws passed by we, the people, and to protest those who wish to deny us our freedom to grow, distribute, and consume cannabis, such as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who claims that "good people don't smoke marijuana," among others in office with hard anti-pot stances.

Legal notes: - Adults (those 21 and over) may legally carry 28g cannabis in public - Adults (those 21 and over) may legally gift each other cannabis

Milestones: - In 1973, Oregon became the first state to decriminalize cannabis - In 1998, Oregon was among the first states to legalize medical cannabis - In 2014, Oregon was the third state to legalize recreational cannabis, following Washington & Colorado - In 2017, Oregon raised over $100,000,000 in tax money through the legalization & regulation of cannabis (!) which was doled out to schools, rehabilitation & mental health services, regulatory boards, and the police.
