NW Natural

The Oregon Commission on Hispanic Affairs (OCHA) invites you to join us for the Latinos Unidos for Change fundraiser on August 23, from 5:30 - 7:30pm in the downtown Portland NW Natural roof garden/event space.

Latinos Unidos for Change is an evening of networking, when our community joins with state and business leaders, students, the Governor's office, legislators and special guests to raise awareness of Latino and Hispanic achievements and challenges, honor those who have made a difference in our communities statewide, and raise funds for the leadership development work of the OCHA, including scholarships for student leadership training and other opportunities that grow Latino leadership statewide. The OCHA is a Governor-appointed body tasked with advising state leaders, including the Governor and legislators, on policy issues, matters of importance to Latinos, public policy research and legislative advocacy.

This year's moving keynote speaker is Representative Teresa Alonso León. Representative León will share her inspiring story of barriers broken, hurdles overcome, and thoughts on what it takes to become an empowered leader and elected official.

Former Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul J. De Muniz will join us to introduce OCHA's special honorees, Maria Ramos Underwood and Former Representative Dr. Joseph Gallegos. Maria is a catalyst for change and tenacious leader dedicated to improving the lives of others. Ms. Underwood is the lead fundraiser for La Clinica in Southern Oregon, an active board member, volunteer for the Health Care Coalition of Southern Oregon, Jackson County Emergency Food and Shelter Program and Medford's Family Nurturing Center, and serves the steering committee for SO Health-E, a regional health equity coalition. Dr. Joe Gallegos has dedicated his career to supporting the Latino community by expanding and providing mental health services for over four decades across the U.S. as a Social Worker and as a leader in numerous nonprofits; as faculty member and lecturer at University of Portland and Pacific University, and as elected legislator to the Oregon House of Representatives.

Vancouver DACA Rally
Esther Short Park, Vancouver

SW LULAC and our FCRC rep Diana Avalos-Leos organized a save DACA rally at Ester Short park at 6 pm on Weds, August 30th.

Students under the protection of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals are holding their collective breath and hoping that DACA survives the current administration. They need this protection to have jobs, they need this protection to get financial aid for college. As educators, we know how important DACA is. When students have their status in jeopardy, it is much more difficult to engage them in school and get them invested in academia. Why give 100% in class when your entire future in this country is in jeopardy? We need to take action and raise our voice in defense of DACA. Governor Inslee signed in the REAL Hope Act (WA version of Dream Act) five years ago and some of my Dreamer students were able to meet with him and be present at the signing of the legislation.

Inslee wrote a great article that was picked up by CNN, here it is: http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/24/opinions/congress-protect-dreamers-inslee/index.html

Bystander Intervention Matters Communities of Color Unite
Artists Repertory Theatre, 1515 SW Morrison

This Summer #DontShootPDX kicks off a hosted series of community focused bystander intervention conversations and direct engagement platforms. This months outreach is to Communities of Color and those of Latino Ancestry. All are welcome though these voices are the ones being centered in this space due to the specific context and necessary experience based subject matter.

There's a history of solidarity amongst the black and brown communities. Our history and struggles have roots in Americas culture of racism and political social terrorism. The struggles are real though our solidarity needs a renewal and revival of engagement due to the racist violence happening currently in Oregon and across the nation. Let's come together in this series which will continue every 2nd Tuesday at #ART

Each month Bystander Intervention Dialogues and community building panels will inspire and encourage innovative and direct action for those seeking outreach strategies and solutions to ending racial terror and violence. Building Community Matters!


Dont Shoot Portland - In August 2014 we agreed to take political action and organize at Dawson Park to be in solidarity with the growing response from Ferguson, MO #MikeBrown

Pochas Radicales: Establishing & Sustaining Healthy Boundaries as Artists
S1

Join home school at S1 for a workshop on healthy boundaries con las Pochas Radicales! As always this event will be free and open to the public, livestreamed online for remote viewers. Snacks and refreshments will be available. Please note the maximum capacity for this workshop is 40 participants.


In the Pochas' own words:

"For our last happening of the year, we are holding space for folks that are interested in creating, establishing and sustaining healthy relationships as artists with a focus on boundaries. As creatives, we are simultaneously navigating relations with collaborators, galleries, institutions, communities & social media among others. Sometimes these relationships can be difficult when we consider the identities and experiences we hold, especially if we come from a marginalized community.

How do I know when I am tapped out? Do I feel comfortable saying no? Do my relationships overlap? Does this relationship need to change or be let go? The workshop is open to all genders & identities but will focus on the experiences of BIPOC artists as intersectionality greatly informs how bodies & labor are perceived. Our intention is for folks to leave feeling self aware about their needs & capacity, confident and empowered to move forward in their relationships in a way that honors their relationship to Self.

Outside of the collective Blanca teaches an anti-oppression healthy relationships curriculum to Latinx youth with the goal of preventing gender-based violence. She uses a popular education model and seeks to create an environment that is both trauma informed and reflective of the community she is engaging with.

First hour: Discussion & Knowledge Share
Second hour: Written & Visual Art Activity

*This will also be Blanca’s last engagement with Pochas Radicales for quite some time as she is honoring herself by listening to her heart. She will be moving back to her first home at the beginning of 2018."


Pochas Radicales is an ongoing project founded during an undergraduate experience at Portland State University. The lack of support and space for queer latinas/chicanas/pochas in academia and community pushed members to create an environment in which to discuss the experience of such an identity in the Pacific Northwest. As a queer Latinx art collective, Pochas Radicales work toward community engagement through art & activism.

Meet and Greet with Maria Hinojosa in Hillsboro! Advance registration
Hillsboro Civic Center

We are excited to announce that Maria Hinojosa, nationally-recognized journalist is coming to Washington County on Friday! VAN, the City of Hillsboro and Centro Cultural are co-hosting her from 5 - 6:45pm at the Hillsboro Civic Center.

A little bit about Maria…. For 25 years, Maria Hinojosa has helped tell America's untold stories and brought to light unsung heroes in America and abroad. In April 2010, Hinojosa launched The Futuro Media Group with the mission to produce multi-platform, community-based journalism that gives critical voice to the voiceless by harnessing the power of independent media to tell stories that are overlooked or under reported by traditional media.

As the anchor and executive producer of the long-running weekly NPR show Latino USA, and as anchor of the Emmy Award-winning talk show Maria Hinojosa: One-on-One from WGBH/La Plaza, Hinojosa has informed millions of Americans about the fastest growing group in our country. Previously, a Senior Correspondent for NOW on PBS, and currently, a rotating anchor for Need to Know, Hinojosa has reported hundreds of important stories—from the immigrant work camps in NOLA after Katrina, to teen girl victims of sexual harassment on the job, to Emmy Award-winning stories of the poor in Alabama.

This casual event will include social time and an address from Maria, along with other local leaders.

Please join us at our Defend DACA Vigil afterwards! https://www.facebook.com/events/488445261530634

Art Spark: DACA - Informing Our Future - advance RSVP
Toffee Club

October’s installment of Art Spark will take place at Toffee Club, on SE Hawthorne, on October 19th from 6-8 PM. This event we will pair with RACC’s Arts Education Department, including The Right Brain Initiative, to focus on resources for artists engaged in youth mentorship and passing on knowledge for the future success of our community.

Because at this moment the education and future of 800,000 young people in the US are threatened by deportation due to the end of DACA, we also think it is important to use this platform to rally and educate community. Programming will hold space for education and DACA resources.

Community Partners and Featured Organizations for October 19th include Marrow PDX, Latino Network, Momentum Alliance, The Center, Ideal Lax Pdx, Artist & Craftsman Supply North Portland, Young Audiences of Oregon & SW Washington, and artists: Emilly Prado, Heldáy de la Cruz, Ayita Malila Copper Nadir

What is the American Dream? (Beloved Community Forums)
Vancouver Avenue First Baptist Church of Portland

What is the American Dream in 2017?

Once upon a time immigrants came to this country in search of better jobs and a better life. But what has happened to this dream in an era when so many vilify and criminalize the very workforce of new arrivals that props up our economy? Join a diverse cross-section of your neighbors to discuss these basic questions of American identity, all while making new friends and deepening your community relationships. As with each Beloved Community Forum, we will welcome a community leader to share their vision of "what they are for,” and offer us all a chance to discern and discuss what we are for as well. Refreshments will be provided.

Our October gathering will be led by Ramon Ramirez, President of PCUN- Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (Northwest Treeplanters and Farmworkers United), Oregon’s farmworker union and the largest Latino organization in our state. Ramon has lived in Oregon for over 40 years, and has dedicated his life to immigrant rights and social justice.

Celebrating Day of the Dead and 40 Years of Movement Building (PCUN)
SEIU Local 503, 6401 SE Foster at Holgate

Day of the Dead, Ramon Ramirez's b-day, Mariachi, tamales, & great company all in one day! $40 per ticket!

PCUN’s Annual Celebration is the place to catch up with friends and allies of the farmworker movement, enjoy authentic Mexican food and Latin music, & learn about what we’ve been up to.

This year’s celebration falls on the famous Mexican holiday “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead). It also happens to be Ramon Ramirez’s (PCUN President) birthday. And to cap it off, 2017 is our 40th year of movement building work. So come and enjoy some pan de muerto (bread of the dead) with champurrado (warm thick Mexican drink), tamales (no translation needed), great music and stories, and most importantly great company.

A summary of 40 years of movement building

40 years ago this summer we embarked on a journey towards justice and equality for Oregon farmworkers. We’ve made tremendous progress, but some things remain the same. It was 1977 when we founded our movement’s first organization, the Willamette Valley Immigration Project (now the Farmworker Service Center), in response to an increase of ICE activity. At the time the WVIP provided community organizing, legal advice and legal representation to undocumented workers. This work has become a priority once more. And this time around, thanks to you we have a strong movement resisting and rising above the hate.

Discusión Comunitaria Sobre las Opciones de Vivienda
The Rosewood Initiative, 16126 SE Stark

QUE ES: Una Discusión Comunitaria acerca de las opciones de vienda en zonas residenciales de Portland
CUANDO: El día Jueves, 26 de 16 Novembre de 18:00-19:30
DONDE: Rosewood Initiative, 16126 SE Stark St, Portland, OR 97233
ALIMENTOS: Se les servirá una cena buffet y bebidas a todos los asistentes.
QUIENES: Portland For Everyone, People-Places-Things, y socios de la comunidad.

DESCRIPCIÓN DEL EVENTO: Portland enfrenta a una escasez de viviendas. Los Portlanders a veces se preguntan porque cada barrio de la ciudad no está siendo construido para asemejarse a los que ahora son caros dentro de unas cuantas millas del centro de la ciudad los cuales están en alta demanda.

La razón es que realmente es ilegal construir barrios como esos. En 1959, Portland prohibió a la mayoría de las nuevas y pequeñas viviendas multifamiliares como dúplex, cuatro complejos de casas y divisiones internas – son las mismas casas pequeñas y eficientes que continúan siendo la tienda de la esquina y vías factibles para los autobuses que transitan con frecuencia en los barrios más queridos de Portland donde salimos a caminar. Le invitamos a que nos acompañe con Portland for Everyone el 26 de Octubre en Rosewood Initiative en SE Stark St para una breve presentación y discusión comunitaria en torno a una breve ventana de oportunidad de Portland para volver a legalizar los aspectos de la ciudad que queremos. Los representantes de la campaña de Portland For Everyone estarán presentes, así como varios intérpretes, seguidos por una discusión de preguntas y respuestas.

Puertas abiertas, alimentos y bebidas: 18:00

Nos centraremos en las decisiones que pronto se llevarán a cabo a través del Residential Infill Project, una oportunidad única en una generación para permitir que una vez más existan mas "vacíos intermedios" de vivienda en la ciudad: precios mas razonables, de perfil más bajo, con casas de energía eficiente que ayudarían a más de nosotros a seguir viviendo en un lugar y de dar a los urbanizadores a que construyan algo mejor que otra McMansion.

Si desea expresar sus opiniones o comentarios comuníquese directamente al Consejo Municipal de Portland, usted puede:

Envíe un correo electrónico a: psc@portlandoregon.gov

¿Qué es PORTLAND FOR EVERYONE? Somos una coalición de vecinos, defensores de vivienda asequible, organizaciones comunitarias, vecindarios y negocios locales. Creemos en una vivienda abundante, diversa y asequible para todas las personas que viven en Portland. Juntos, pedimos al Ayuntamiento de Portland para ampliar las opciones de vivienda para satisfacer mejor las necesidades de todos los residentes.

Acerca de la campaña: El año 2016-2017 presenta una ventana rara pero breve de oportunidades: Portland estará haciendo un uso critico de la tierra y de las decisiones de política que antes tendrá un impacto en el habitat de nuestra ciudad durante décadas.
