Stand by Your Land: Keeping Public Lands in Public Hands
Keen Garage

From the Oregon Coast to Steen Mountain, the Rogue River to Mt Hood, Oregon is defined by its public lands. They are the places we work and play, owned and cherished by all of us. They provide habitat for fish and wildlife, and clean water. Unfortunately, our public lands are under attack. It isn't just armed militants at a remote Wildlife Refuge. Politicians and polluting industries are trying to cut you off from your public lands, or sell them to the highest bidder.

At a public forum hosted by the Oregon Public Lands Alliance (OPLA), learn why our public lands are important, what is being done to protect these precious landscapes, and walk away with the tools and knowledge to tell the Trump Administration and their polluting industry allies to keep their hands off our public lands!

The program will feature detailed presentations from Oregon Wild, the Audubon Society of Portland, the Oregon Natural Desert Association, and Bark on the many values of public lands and the current proposals to take them away. Panelists will also discuss the successful campaign to keep the Elliott State Forest public and the role Oregon’s public lands play in fighting global climate change.

Reception with beer and appetizers to follow discussion.

RSVP for your free ticket: http://org.salsalabs.com/o/1780/p/salsa/event/common/public/?event_KEY=99916

This event is part of a series of community forums taking place across the entire state this summer in order to build greater awareness of public lands, their many values, and their current political threats.

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

This bystanders intervention workshop will feature a special presentation from Donna Maxey of Race Talks

This Summer #DontShootPDX kicked off this hosted series of community focused bystander intervention conversations and direct engagement platforms. This months outreach is to Communities of Color and those of Black American 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 Misogynoir in America against the Black Woman and it has crippled our black and brown communities. Americas racist history and political struggles to hold us in bondage has developed roots in American Democracy. In today's current events America is becoming known for our political social terrorism. The struggles are real and being silent is complicity. Elders have knowledge to build gaps in understanding and intergenerational solidarity needs a renewal and revival of engagement due to the racist violence happening in Oregon and across the nation. Let's come together in this series which will continue every month 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!

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.

Re- Legalizing Housing Options in Portland, the Happy Hour - advance RSVP
Pizza Baron

NOTE: Please click the tickets link (event is free!) to the EventBrite page and reserve your spot. Space is limited. We will book more HH's if there is demand!

Having trouble paying your rent?
Can't afford to buy?
Need better access to transit?

Portland faces a housing shortage. And many Portlanders don't like McMansions going up on their streets, especially when they replace otherwise good structures. Portlanders also wonder sometimes why more neighborhoods in the city aren't being built to resemble the now-expensive ones within a few miles of downtown that are in such high demand. The reason is that it's currently illegal to build neighborhoods like those.

In 1959, Portland banned most new small multifamily dwellings like duplexes, four-plexes and internal home divisions -- the same small, efficient homes that continue to make corner stores and frequent buses viable in Portland's most beloved, walkable neighborhoods. Neighborhoods built out under newer, less-dense zoning rules might never support frequent buslines ... unless we change the rules.

Join Portland for Everyone on Thursday October 12 at Pizza Baron, near SE Divison & 122nd, for a short presentation and community discussion around Portland's brief window of opportunity to re-legalize aspects of the city we love. A representative from the Portland for Everyone campaign will present, followed by a discussion and Q&A.

Doors Open with Food & Beverages: 6:00 pm
Presentation: 6:30 pm
Discussion: Following presentation/ Until 7:30 pm

We will focus on the decisions being made soon through the Residential Infill Project, a once-in-a-generation chance to once again allow more types of "missing middle" housing in more of the city: more affordable, lower-profile, energy-efficient homes that would help more of us age in place and give developers something better to build than another McMansion. We will also beirfly touch on the changes that may happen in Portland's multi-dwelling (apartment) zones.

Please RSVP here so we know to plan for you!! 2017-2018 presents a rare but brief window of opportunity: Portland will be making critical land use and policy decisions over the next 18 months that will impact our city’s livability for decades. To ensure a Portland that is affordable and accessible for all residents, our civic leaders can and must do more. About the campaign: Portland for Everyone, a project of 1000 Friends of Oregon, is a growing coalition of organizations and community groups that support diverse, abundant, and affordable housing options citywide, and connecting them with opportunities to share their stories and take action.

Portland can learn from both the successes of other cities and regions that face similar challenges. We can and must make the right choices on landmark land-use decisions: One set of choices will strengthen the ability of all to live, work, and play throughout Portland, with increased access to reliable transportation and open spaces. Another set of choices will squeeze those of middle and low incomes out of the city and increase homelessness, with disproportionate impact on people of color, immigrants and refugees, and the elderly, taking them away from employment centers, transportation options, and their communities. Together, we will encourage the City Council and other civic leaders to make inclusive and equitable decisions that will enable Portland to become a more equitable and affordable place. Visit the P4E website to take action now.

We hope to see you there!

PDX: Let's Defund Tar Sands! (Greenpeace PNW) - advance RSVP
IWW Hall, 2249 E Burnside

Join us for a presentation and discussion on Tar Sands to learn more about how Greenpeace USA’s is campaigning against JPMorgan Chase for their financing of four tar sands pipelines. We are calling on them to refuse to participate or underwrite any financial agreements or loans which facilitate the construction or expansion of tar sand pipelines.

PLEASE REGISTER: we will review the project, discuss how we can show solidarity, and how our collective people-power can put pressure on Chase and other financial institutions to divest!

We stand behind Indigenous communities and First Nations that are leading the fight to stop to block the pipeline construction that would carry toxic Tar Sands. Over 120 First Nations across Canada and the U.S. have signed the Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion.

RSVP today! Enjoy a pizza dinner, snacks, and refreshments on us, so please be sure to register!

  • RSVP link: https://goo.gl/forms/a0xK9X6xLxxYkxnh2
  • WHO: Volunteers, supporters, first timers, family, & friends!
  • WHAT: Defund Tar Sands Launch! Presentation & Discussion
  • WHEN: Wednesday, October 25th, 7:30 PM- 9:00 PM (social at 7:00 PM)
  • WHERE: 2249 E Burnside Street, Portland 97214

So what does Chase have to do with tar sands?

While there are many banks financing these dirty tar sands pipelines, JPMorgan Chase is especially entangled here in the United States. JPMorgan Chase (JPMC) has participated in 11 of the 18 current lines of credit to the three pipeline companies. Not only that, JPMorgan Chase acted as a lead agent in 3 of those deals. Lead agent banks play a crucial role in making these loans happen. They essentially use their size, power, and influence to help ensure the deal is a success.

While all fossil fuel pipelines are a threat to the climate and our communities, Chase is currently funding the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline. This pipeline that will run through the Northwest and impact all of its people.

P.S. We need your energy and activism to stop Tar Sands! RSVP today so that we know you’re coming!

Day Laborers and Disaster Relief

(español abajo) Please join Voz and Gonzalo Mercado of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) in a presentation and discussion about the critical role day laborers have played in disaster resiliency efforts around the country.

This summer we have seen unprecedented extreme weather caused by climate change: hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, and fires.
