Film Screening of House On Coco Road, about the 1980s US invasion of Grenada
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

THE HOUSE ON COCO ROAD: the powerful 1980s Afro-centric Jewel revolution took hold on the island nation of Grenada, and then Reagan sent troops to invade. Firsthand accounts from activists Angela Davis, Fania Davis and Fannie Haughton weave together director Damani Baker’s family portrait of utopian dreams, resistance and civil unrest with a film score composed by music luminary Meshell Ndegeocello. #kboo #blacklivesmatter #angeladavis #meshellnegeocello suggested admission $7-10, but no one turned away for lack of funds!

A fascinating and under-reported chapter in the never-ending struggle for justice on behalf of black men and women worldwide, as well as a scalding appraisal of Reagan-era racial attitudes at home and abroad.”. Justin Chang - LA TIMES

In October 1983 the largest military power in the world, the United States, invaded one of the smallest countries on the planet, the tiny Caribbean island of Grenada--a country with a population smaller than Dayton, Ohio, and a military smaller than the New York City Municipal Police Department. The film celebrates women crucial to the Jewel movement, and examines why the US was determined to crush this Black Power Revolution.

Join our speaker panel for a discussion focusing on identifying personal risks; assessing situations for elements of danger; and exploring options for dealing with the threat of violence. Learn how women can develop a sense of empowerment through emotional and physical safety by connecting with resources in our community.

Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc.: Stand up for the Community Benefits Agreement!
Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc.

The City of Portland has the opportunity to deeply impact our region through a Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) which serves everyone in our community. By implementing a model for shared wealth creation through public investment, Portland can create access to high-road jobs with good wages and benefits for our communities of color and for women - for those who have historically been excluded from these career pathways.

The CBA also provides funding for valuable pre-apprenticeship training programs offered by organizations like Oregon Tradeswomen, Construction Hope, and Portland Youth Builders. The City Council is slated to vote on the future implementation of the CBA in early August!

Come to the OTI office from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm on Tuesday, August 8th. We will write postcards to Mayor Wheeler to make sure he knows we care that our city tax dollars are spent fairly.

We will provide some snacks and of course, kids are welcome!

THANK YOU!

Experienced Women of Color in the Workplace
Kennedy School, 5736 NE 33rd

Women-of-color managers and professionals describe barriers to their advancement as a “concrete ceiling,” as opposed to the “glass ceiling” for White females and Men of Color. Not only is the “concrete ceiling” more difficult to penetrate, Women of Color say they can’t see through it to glimpse the corner office. Join us to hear from four Women of Color who have managed to make a difference in our State while making a dent in the concrete ceiling.

Speakers:

  • Vicki Nakashima, (Retired) Director, State of Oregon Department of Human Services

  • Sharon Gary-Smith, (Retired) Executive Director, McKenzie River Gathering Foundation

  • Linda Castillo, Coordinator, New Portlander Program, ONI, City of Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement

  • Donita Fry, Coordinator, Portland Youth and Elders Council, NAYA, Native American Youth and Family Center

But when her younger cousin Abigail is in need of a criminalized medical procedure, she must decide what price she's willing to pay for justice.

Starring Sidony O'neal, Paige Moreland and Ana del Rocío

Directed by Dawn Jones Redstone Written by Kjerstin Johnson Produced by Christian Henry
