Nonviolence training - Diversity of tactics and backfire
Portland State University, Smith Student Union

This session we will be talking about a diverse array of tactics, dealing with violent flanks, and what happens with backfire.

Violent flanks/Diversity of Tactics - how to use a variety of tactics to make progress, how to deal with violent portions of a movement that can arise.

Backfire - All violence backfires. Violence by armed forces of the state opens up sympathy for a campaign as long as the campaign keeps its nonviolent discipline and image. Violence, even in self-defense, by a movement backfires and justifies crackdown even as it removes sympathy for the movement by general public.

Room will be updated as soon as we have the information.

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.

Just Transition Workshop
Central Lutheran Church

RSVP Here: http://350pdx.nationbuilder.com/july5_pjet_training

Fighting climate change requires transitioning from one system to another. But how do we make sure this transition will provide opportunities for workers now dependent on the extractive fossil fuel economy, or will rectify ongoing environmental injustice?

The Portland Just Energy Transition Initiative provides an opportunity to significantly improve climate and racial justice work in Portland. This initiative would fund the rapid expansion of solarization and weatherization in Portland, with a focus on job creation and inclusion for communities of color, workers, and others too often left out of planning and leading the clean energy economy. Our training will provide details on the initiative as well as provide an opportunity to get your questions answered. This training is the first to educate and motivate community members to help us enact this measure.

The first hour will contain a "climate justice 101" training and information regarding the PJET campaign, and the last half hour will be a Q&A and information for how to participants can talk with their friends, neighbors and other community members and encourage their support.

Join us on July 5th, 7:00-8:30 PM where Portland NAACP President Jo Ann Hardesty will lead the evening's discussion and training on how you can get involved in the important work that lies ahead.


350pdx is the Portland, Oregon, local of 350.org; working locally to grow the global climate movement. Sign up at www.350pdx.org

One of regional trainings will be on July 9th in East Portland, from 2:00 to 3:30 PM at the Midland Library. It’s an opportunity for our members and supporters to engage with OWCS and learn what it takes to jump into campaign life.

The East Portland training will feature special guests from the area who know what it takes to run a successful campaign, and who will help walk participants through the 5 things they need to know to work in Oregon politics.

Prepare Students with Disabilities to Transition from School to Adult Life
Fort Vancouver High School

A session to share information with middle school and high school families about what to expect out of a transition program and how to prepare.

Why wait? Let's Start Now!

Are you a parent, educator, or student in Clark County? Are you wondering about life after transition, or how to prepare for your transition program in the future? This session is for you!

Many families find that they spend their IEP meetings and school years focusing on the current year and only when they approach the end of high school do they begin to hear about how to plan for transition. What we want to emphasize is that you don't have to wait to prepare for transition until the final years of high school. Let's learn together how to gather information earlier and build skills during middle school and high school so that students leave their transition program with a paid job they enjoy and a full life in the community.

Don't miss this interactive evening and the opportunity to meet other families and students the same age as yours.
