Donald Trump and the Working Class
SEIU Local 49, 3536 SE 26th

Portland Democratic Socialists of America presents:

"Donald Trump and the Working Class: How We Got Here and How to Respond"

How on earth did this comically garish capitalist get elected President of the United States? Did he really win by gaining the support of the white working class? Did anyone really believe this gaudy fat-cat would be a voice for working Americans? What should the Left do now that he’s in office?

Join the Portland, OR chapter of Democratic Socialists of America as we host a conversation between local and prolific journalist Arun Gupta and University of Oregon professor Joe Lowndes.

Arun Gupta reports nationwide on politics, the economy, labor, food, immigration, the environment, and social movements on the left and right for publications including The Nation, YES Magazine, The Progressive, In These Times, the Raw Story, Telesur, the Guardian, and the Washington Post. He is a founder of the Occupied Wall Street Journal, former international news editor of The Guardian Newsweekly, and a Lannan Foundation writing fellow. He is writing a book, Bacon as a Weapon of Mass Destruction: A Junk-Food Loving Chef's Inquiry Into Taste, for The New Press.

Joe Lowndes is an associate professor of political science at the University of Oregon, where he studies right-wing movements, populism, and racial politics. He has been active for three decades in activism in antiracist, green, and labor politics. He is a member of AFT Oregon, AAUP Oregon, and is on the executive council of local 3209, United Academics. He is the author of From the New Deal to the New Right: Race and the Southern Origins of Modern Conservatism, and co-editor of Race and American Political Development. He is currently writing a book on Right-wing populism in the US.

Bring cash to donate $5-$10 at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Race and Resistance in Early Twentieth Century Oregon
Oregon Historical Society, 1200 SW Park

Presented by Dr. Kimberly Jensen and Jo Ogden.

Like the United States as a whole and many other nations, the state of Oregon has a long history of linking economic, political, and cultural rights — or lack thereof — to the race associated with a person or group of people. Race, a human power relation, orders access to wealth and power to people defined as White, at the expense of others. Such generalization, however, obscures the complexity and the many individual stories that can help us understand the ongoing impact of race and the struggles against it today. Join us as we delve into this history by exploring broad themes and specific incidences of ways people enacted and resisted race-based policies from one time period: Oregon in the early twentieth century.

Kimberly Jensen is Professor of History and Gender Studies at Western Oregon University. She is the author of Mobilizing Minerva: American Women in the First World War, Oregon's Doctor to the World: Esther Pohl Lovejoy and a Life in Activism, and "'Women's Positive Duty to Participate': The Practice of Female Citizenship in Oregon and the Expanding Surveillance State During the First World War and its Aftermath" in the Summer 2017 issue of the Oregon Historical Quarterly.

Johanna Ogden is an independent Portland historian. She is author of "Race, Labor, and Getting Out the Harvest: The Bracero Program in World War II Hood River, Oregon," in Memory, Community, and Activism – Mexican Migration and Labor in the Pacific Northwest, Michigan State University Press, and "Ghadar: Historical Silences and Notions of Belonging," the Oregon Historical Quarterly, Summer 2012 issue. Her upcoming book, India's Oregon Trail: Ghadar, Thind and the Struggle for Belonging, is set for publication in fall 2018 by University of Washington Press.
