From Housing Crisis to Housing Action - Friday Forum
Sentinel Hotel

The Oregon legislature has engaged in months of debate over bills that could address the housing crisis, including two bills focused on rental affordability that City Club supported. One aspect of the housing crisis that has been underreported is the deepening shortage of affordable homes for first-time homebuyers. What ideas and programs can Portland or Oregon lead on to address this problem at the scale of the need?

Join us as we take a hard look at steps to close the minority home ownership gap now. Moderated by Janet Byrd, the panel will include Margaret Salazar, Director of Oregon Housing and Community Services, Ernesto Fonesca, the new Executive Director of Hacienda CDC, and Maxine Fitzpatrick, the Executive Director of Portland Community Reinvestment Initiative.


City Club of Portland - Follow us on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/pdxcityclub

We Call This Home This year, in a series of conversations, We Call This Home, brought national leaders together with local experts to explore the depth and complexity of wealth inequality, race and home ownership in our region. Based on research conducted by EcoNorthwest, we learned that if the regions' current trend continues there will be no affordable homes available for a median-income household in any Portland neighborhood within the next five years. This reality has devastating effects for many Portland residents, but is particularly difficult in communities of color.

We Call This Home is proudly presented by Portland Housing Center, in partnership with : Agora Journalism Center at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication, City Club of Portland, EcoNorthwest, Neighborhood Partners, North Star Civic Foundation, Open:Housing, Oregon Humanities, with support from J.P. Morgan Chase, HomeStreet Bank and Wells Fargo.

Streets to Stage: How Law Enforcement Is Learning From Theatre - Friday...
Sentinel Hotel

The frequent and ongoing conflicts between police and communities of color have scarred countless families, neighborhoods, and cities across the country, including here in Oregon. However, a Portland theatre company and local law enforcement have collaborated on a unique response to help the Portland community to heal and connect. Through the August Wilson Red Door Project’s continuous productions of The New Black Fest’s Hands Up: 7 Playwrights, 7 Testaments, actor and director Kevin Jones and his cast have ignited a conversation on racial justice that resonates deeply with many Portlanders-- including communities of color and the local police department. Join us as Kevin Jones of the August Wilson Red Door Project and Captain Robert Day of the Portland Police Training Division share the stage to discuss this production, its impact on both law enforcement and community, and this amazing partnership that began with a monologue.

This conversation will be moderated by Dmae Roberts, two-time Peabody Award winning radio artist & writer, and co-founder of MediaRites and Theatre Diaspora.

A representative from the Oregon Department of Administrative Services will present an overview of the state budget–revenues and expenses. Our other speakers will be Senator Michael Dembrow (Oregon District 23) and Jeremy Rogers (Oregon Business Plan).

Land of Opportunity Screening
Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO)

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey and now Hurricane Irma, this film is especially timely as it highlights how (climate) disasters exacerbate housing crises and can be used as an excuse to displace vulnerable low-income residents.

Don't listen to me, read what Spike Lee says: "LAND OF OPPORTUNITY is an important part of the New Orleans story. It gets down and dirty with the people on the ground. Five years in the making, Luisa’s film gives voice to everyday people working hard to rebuild their city and their lives. Anyone who cares about the future of cities in this country should see this movie!" -Spike Lee

We invite APANO Members and community members who identify as Asian and/or Pacific Islander to join us for the 3rd of our CHHI screening! This screening is free, but please RSVP with the tickets link!

Fundraising Dinner to Support Oaxaca After Earthquake Damage - advance RSVP
Mi Mero Mole

On September 9th, an 8.4 magnitude earthquake struck Mexico off the coast of Oaxaca — that’s almost 8 times stronger than the quake that destroyed much of San Francisco in 1906. Over 100 people were killed, many more injured, and the infrastructure of the Mexican state was severely damaged. Two of our crew who have been with us the longest, Azucena and Eufemia, are from Oaxaca. They were unable to reach their family for days after the quake. Oaxaca is the heart and soul of culinary Mexico. No area has more diverse or sophisticated dishes. Oaxaca’s cuisine alone could rival many cuisines of entire nations. It’s also the home of most mezcal distilleries.

While we have helped with this country’s natural disasters, both Irma and Harvey most recently, and also the fires here in the Gorge, we feel a kinship with Oaxaca as well and would like to support their efforts to recover. We hope you will join us in that effort. Our friend Dave Miller, who runs a blog on eating and drinking in Mexico, has organized a GoFundMe campaign to bring water filtration systems to three affected towns. This special dinner featuring favorite Oaxacan dishes from Eufemia and Azucena will go to help that effort.

Come enjoy a traditional Oaxacan meal made with love by Eufemia and Azucena and help a good cause. We will also offer a mezcal pairing, featuring all mezcals from Oaxaca. The dinner will be four courses for only $35, including:

  • Azucena’s mole amarillo empanadas with shredded chicken
  • Sopa de guias: squash vine and blossom soup with masa dumplings
  • Eufemia’s estofado: beef ribs in a flavorful mole with heavy influences from Moorish Spain.
  • Sweet tamales with Oaxacan chocolate

The entire meal will be gluten free. If you have any other dietary restrictions, please contact us to see if we can accommodate your needs. Email us to RSVP now - newsletter@mmmtacospdx.com !

  • WHAT: Fundraising Dinner for Oaxaca
  • WHEN: Sunday, October 1, 6:30pm
  • WHERE: Mi Mero Mole, 32 NW 5th Ave
  • COST: $35 food only, $20 addition for mezcal pairing

Disability Art and Culture Project's An Evening of Comedy
Curious Comedy Theater, 5225 NE MLK Jr

The Disability Art and Culture Project (DACP) invites you to attend our upcoming fundraiser!

Advance Tickets: $30, available now through Eventbrite! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/an-evening-of-comedy-featuring-nina-g-tickets-37469773100

Admission is $35 at the door, so make to sure to get your tickets early.

DACP will bring Nina G, the San Francisco Bay Area's favorite female stuttering stand up comedian (granted she is the only one), to Portland for an evening of comedy, and a silent auction!

'Nina G has been challenging attitudes about Disability since she did stand-up for the first time in 2010. “How many people with Disabilities does it take to screw in a light bulb?” Answer: “One to screw it in and 5 able bodied people to say 'You are such an inspiration!"' (Branch). She brings her humor to help people confront and understand social justice issues such as disability, diversity, and equity.

Our fundraiser will support the second biennial Portland ReelAbilities Disability Film Festival. Founded in 2007, ReelAbilities is dedicated to sharing the stories, lives and art of people with disabilities. It consists of award-winning films of the highest cinematic and artistic quality and is hosted in cities across the country. We are excited to bring these films back to Portland in the spring of 2018!

In addition to being a stand up comedian, Nina is also a disability activist, storyteller, children's book author and educator. Learn more about Nina G WWW.NinaGcomedian.com, her one person show: Going Beyond Inspirational, or purchase Nina's book: Once Upon An Accommodation: A Book About Learning Disabilities

“An Evening of Comedy” Featuring Nina G is made possible by the Northwest Health Foundation.
