Portland Assembly – Towards Dual Power
SEIU Local 503, 6401 SE Foster at Holgate

With regular spokescouncil meetings at the start of each month and our city-wide assemblies at the end, Portland Assembly moves deeper into the politics of neighborhood organizing and our municipal libertarian critique of power. Come learn about upcoming actions and help us plan for summer.

Join us May 21st for another Assembly where you can join a neighborhood action council, get debriefed from the spokescouncil, learn critical information from the frontline community council and/or join the infrastructure committes!

To find out where your nearest neighborhood action council is right now, click here: https://portlandassembly.com/community/nac-map/

Much like our last assembly with the Inclusivity Practice training (Thanks so much Vo!!), the education committee and frontline council hope to regularly use the Assembly as an opportunity to grow a common language and our historical knowledge. More information on the training to be posted.

Additionally, the asset-based breakout group is a great place to help the infrastructure team grow or sustain the projects it takes to make Portland Assembly possible. To learn more about joining the infrastructure, email us at PortlandAssembly@protonmail.com

As usual, we all love to eat so please bring food or drink if you can spare.

We offer: - an ADA accessible venue - Food and Drinks (yes, Coffee) - Childcare — please contact beforehand, if possible. - Tabling — contact us, if interested.

Facilitated by Dr. Winston Grady-Willis Director School of Gender, Race and Nations (Portland State University)

About the Organizing Group
Demand Utopia is a radical think tank, a conversation and a collective dedicated towards developing understanding of local spatial histories, reinvigorating imagination and aspiration for a better world beyond this, defending our planets ecology while building a new urbanity under the principles of the right to the city and social ecology.

About the Event Series
This new series launching in fall 2017 "Globalization and the City" is a curriculum for building a new municipal movement featuring workshops and reading groups dedicated to understanding how local histories and development policies connect to systems of globalization. The aim of the series is to educate community activists in the pursuit of building a powerful neighborhood movement for grassroots direct democracy and system change. This series will operate with monthly discussion groups and presentations from experienced activists and intellectuals based around six subject areas. Globalization and Urban Planning, local Portland History, Counterinsurgency and the City, Social Ecology and Libertarian Municipalism and finally Municipalist Movements across the world.

Event Summary
This panel will work to showcase the history of urban renewal and resistance in Portland's black community . From Black Exclusions laws, Redlining's segregation and "blight clearance" to today's gentrification and urban renewal policy, Portland's black community for generations has faced the brunt of discriminatory housing, urban development policy and racist violence. The institutional violence of urban development policy has always underscored and set the stage for street level hate crimes and the motivation for broken windows aggressive policing. This panel will feature voices of community historians and activists who have lived this experience and resisted these forms of institutional power in the city of Portland.

Co-Sponsored by the Northwest Alliance for Alternative Media & Education and Oregon Jericho

This screening will be followed by a speaker panel. Speakers will include Nikki De Leon of PCHRP, a member of the AAPRP Oregon, and local Black Panther Party elder, Kent Ford.

"Fred Hampton was the leader of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party. This film depicts his brutal murder by the Chicago police and its subsequent investigation, but also documents his activities in organizing the Chapter, his public speeches, and the programs he founded for children during the last eighteen months of his life" (-IMDb.com)

Themes discussed after the film will include imperialism, counterinsurgency tactics, education, and coalition building.

Please email stephanieroselaine@gmail.com with questions regarding accessibility of this event or other general questions. More details to come.
