Tools and Culture for Participatory Organizing
Social Justice Action Center

Organizing democratically is hard! How do we hear from everyone and still get work done? How do we grow a collaborative culture while we still live within a competitive society? When nobody is the boss, how do we handle money, information, and power?

Rich and Nati have been engaged in the craft of participatory organizing for more than five years, starting with Occupy in 2011, co-founding Loomio (a worker co-op and social enterprise building software for collective decision-making) and Enspiral (a network of 250 tech activists experimenting with radical organizational forms). (See http://loomio.coop and http://enspiral.com )

We're touring through the US, and will be stopping in Portland to offer a workshop on collaborative culture and non-hierarchical organizing.

In the workshop we'll identify common challenges that groups face when they try to collaborate, and offer tools and processes that have been proven to overcome these common failure points. Most importantly, we don’t just tell people about participatory organizing, we will practice it together, co-creating the workshop and learning by experience.

To maximize accessibility, we have a sliding scale of ticket prices. If you still can't afford it, but you really want to be there, send us an email at nati@loomio.org

Spaces are limited :)

A screening of Herman's House
Portland Books to Prisoners

Herman Wallace may be the longest-serving prisoner in solitary confinement in the United States—he's spent more than 40 years in a 6-by-9-foot cell in Louisiana. Imprisoned in 1967 for a robbery he admits, he was subsequently sentenced to life for a killing he vehemently denies. Herman's House is a moving account of the remarkable expression his struggle found in an unusual project proposed by artist Jackie Sumell.

Sundance Award Winner!

JAIL NO: Demand Decriminalized TriMet
World Trade Center

TriMet is now committed to a budget of $11M for a new police station and added fare enforcement. This militarization threatens Portland's communities of color, invests in continuing disproportionate enforcement, and drains resources we could be using to improve the system: lower fares, frequent service, improved bus stops, and more.

These out of touch decisions come from TriMet's management, and a Board of Directors who don't hold them accountable. The results are unjust.

Riders have a clear vision of a just transportation system : - Community participatory budgeting to stop these disastrous policies and projects before Trimet commits public money! - Reduced fares for low income people as a FUNDED priority! - Service improvements BEFORE further criminalization! - Work with communities of color to develop forward thinking policies on fare enforcement (end abuse of IPT and unequal exclusion of black riders!), police (less police! No weapons! Community policing!), and ICE (no ICE! Sanctuary system!) on buses and trains.

RSVP HERE TO SHOW UP IN NUMBERS Contact Orlando at (503) 774-4504 or email Orlando@opalpdx.org to testify or coordinate action

We CAN transition our transportation system to community-defined justice!

No Transit Jail Meditation
World Trade Center

Portland Indivisible Congressional Lobbying Training - 2 days!
Taborspace

Please note: this is a two day event, May 24th and June 7th. Both are Wednesdays. The class is FREE but requires an RSVP.

If you've ever wanted to organize a visit with a group of friends or community members, but weren't sure how to do so effectively, this training is for you!

This class is targeted for beginners, and should be a comfortable introduction to lobbying, even if you have no previous experience. We will walk through the experience of planning, scheduling, preparing for, and attending a meeting with a congressional office.

This small group training will be delivered in two Monday sessions. This will simulate the steps you take to plan a real meeting.

In the first session (5/24), we'll discuss the formation of a group, the selection of issues, the development of an ask, and how to get a meeting scheduled.

In the second session (6/7), we'll discuss and practice the experience of the meeting itself, while giving attendees the opportunity to experience a few different roles.

Attendance is limited to 12 to keep the training personal and interactive. Please register only if you can commit to attending both sessions. This ticket registers you for both days.

This is the second time I've offered this class, and I plan to offer more of these in the future, on different days and times, to allow people with different availability to attend.

PCC SE Pride Days Keynote: Renata Hill
PCC SE Campus

Come here from one of the New Jersey 4, Renata Hill!

---The New Jersery 4--- Under the neon lights in a gay-friendly neighborhood of New York City, four young African-American lesbians are violently and sexually threatened by a man on the street. They defend themselves against him and are charged and convicted in the courts and in the media as a 'Gang of Killer Lesbians'.

---Renata Hill--- Renata is currently a full-time student on the path to earn an Associates degree in Human Services at the Borough of Manhattan Community College and will then work to get her master’s degree in Social Work.

Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities ( I/DD) Services System Community Forum - Portland
Hollywood Senior Center

The service system for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities ( I/DD) has been evolving since Fairview closed in 2000, and Oregon is far from accomplishing the goal of supporting people with I/DD. We’ve recently released a report that shines a light on some of the faults in Oregon’s support system. At this public forum we’ll share what we’ve learned about the I/DD services system, and hear stories and ideas from stakeholders about how we can improve the system together.

• Meet other consumers, DSPs, and family members in your area

• Share stories about your experience in the I/DD system

• Develop ideas together about how we can improve I/DD services

• Learn how you can take action and organize for systems change

Mississippi Records Presents "Being There", a benefit for the Social Justice Fund
The Hollywood Theatre

Mississippi Records Music & Film Series presents BEING THERE!

Hal Ashby (director of HAROLD & MAUDE, THE LAST DETAIL, COMING HOME, etc.) makes a pitch-perfect movie adaptation of Jerzy Kozinski's novel. Peter Sellers plays Chance the Gardener, a naive white man in a suit who manages to scale to the highest echelons of power in the USA despite the fact that he only knows the world through the lens of what he has seen on television. (Sound familiar?) Just by being a conservative-looking white man in a white mans' world, Chance (renamed Chauncey Gardener) rises and rises - in a matter of days - by repeating vague nonsensical rhetoric. Co-staring Shirley McClain, this is as timely a comedy as we could get.

A portion of the proceeds from this screening go to The Social Justice Fund, a foundation working at the front lines of social change. The Social Justice Fund leverages the resources of its members to foster significant, long-term social justice solutions throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

Stop Fascism: Chris Hedges Speaks in Portland
Aladdin Theater

Are you outraged yet? Since the November general election, human rights have been under attack and our communities of color are the first targets. Corporations have further infiltrated government to divert federal dollars into the pockets of a few. Paramilitary forces like ICE, radical right pundits, and hate groups have reinforced systems of division and control.

The US has a long history of white supremacy and disparity — and recently, more people have been uprooted from our imaginary past of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans.

KBOO Community Radio is proud to host Chris Hedges in a provocative look at the current state of revolt in the United States. Hedges will recount the US’s continuing history of domestic terrorism while outlining ways for communities to resist before it’s too late.

Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, Princeton University professor, author, and activist, as well as a columnist for the news and commentary website Truthdig. He also hosts a weekly interview show called ‘On Contact,’ which airs “dissident voices” currently missing from the mainstream media. He has written 11 books, including “Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt,” (2015) and the New York Times bestseller “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt” (2012), which he co-authored with Portland-based comics journalist Joe Sacco.

This event is a benefit for KBOO Community Radio, and all proceeds go to one of the region’s longest running independent media outlets. We serve communities through our free broadcast training programs — including the Youth Collective: a youth mentorship program, media co-sponsorships for grassroots groups, local citizen-produced news, live in-studio music program, remote broadcasts from community events, and more.

KBOO has served the Willamette Valley and Columbia Gorge since 1968. We broadcast live 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on 90.7 FM Portland, 104.3 FM Corvallis, 91.9 FM Hood River, and worldwide at kboo.fm.

Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco speak in Portland
Aladdin Theater

Stop Fascism: Chris Hedges & Joe Sacco Talk About Resistance. A benefit for KBOO Community Radio. $20/ticket

Pulitzer Prize–winner Chris Hedges and Portland-based award-winning cartoonist and journalist Joe Sacco set out to take a look at the sacrifice zones — areas in America that have been offered up for exploitation in the name of profit, progress, and technological advancement. The story of that journey became the book “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt”, a critically-acclaimed union of graphic novel and searing indictment of global capitalism’s effect in places like Camden, New Jersey; West Virginia; Pine Ridge, North Dakota; Immokalee, Florida; and New York.

The portrait of misery, painted from post-industrial America and published in 2014, has not changed. Or has it? And how?

Join Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco as they discuss the mechanisms for resistance that exist and explore the current state of revolt in the United States.

KBOO Community Radio is proud to host this important discussion. This exclusive, one time only event is a benefit for KBOO Community Radio, and all proceeds go to one of the region’s longest running independent media outlets.

Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, Princeton University professor, author, and activist, as well as a columnist for the news and commentary website Truthdig. He also hosts a weekly interview show called ‘On Contact,’ which airs “dissident voices” currently missing from the mainstream media. He has written 11 books, including “Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt,” (2015) and the New York Times bestseller “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt” (2012), which he co-authored with Portland-based comics journalist Joe Sacco.

Joe Sacco was born in Malta, and lives in Portland, OR, where he makes his living as a comics journalist. He graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in journalism. His comic book, “Palestine”, won an American Book Award in 1996, and his graphic novel, “Safe Area: Goradze”, about his time in Bosnia, won the Will Eisener Award for Best Original Graphic Novel in 2001. Sacco’s most recent major work is a book about the southern Gaza Strip, Footnotes in Gaza, was published in early 2010; it received the 2010 Ridenhour Book Prize.

KBOO Community Radio serves communities through our free broadcast training programs — including the Youth Collective: a youth mentorship program, media co-sponsorships for grassroots groups, local citizen-produced news, live in-studio music program, remote broadcasts from community events, and more.

KBOO has served the Willamette Valley and Columbia Gorge since 1968. We broadcast live 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on 90.7 FM Portland, 104.3 FM Corvallis, 91.9 FM Hood River, and worldwide at kboo.fm.

Clinton Street Resistance presents TOP GUN benefitting Feed The Hungry, Inc.
Clinton Street Theater

Devil-may-care navy pilot Pete Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is sent to Miramar Naval Air Station for advanced training. Here he vies with Tom Kasansky (Val Kilmer) for the coveted "Top Gun" award. When not so occupied, Mitchell carries on a romance with civilian consultant Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis). Shaken up by the death of a friend, Mitchell loses the Top Gun honor to Kasansky. Worried that he may have lost his nerve, Mitchell is given a chance to redeem himself during a tense international crisis involving a crippled US vessel and a flock of predatory enemy planes.

The story wasn't new in 1986, but Top Gun scored with audiences on the strength of its visuals, especially the vertigo-inducing aerial sequences. The film made more money than any other film in 1986 and even spawned a 1989 takeoff, Hot Shots. An Academy Award went to the Giogio Moroder-Tom Whitlock song "Take My Breath Away." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Director: Tony Scott Country: United States Year: 1986 Runtime: 110 minutes

There are elements that hold up - especially Cruise's blinding charisma. The aerial scenes are still thrilling, and perfectly suited to a giant screen. Everything else? Well, that depends on how nostalgic you're feeling. -- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Feed The Hungry, Inc.

Founded in 1991, Feed the Hungry, Inc. is a community based, non-profit, non-denominational organization that provides a hearty meal once a week for as many as 165 people.

Meals are served every Sunday at 2:15 p.m. in the parish hall of St. John’s Episcopal Church, 2036 SE Jefferson St., in downtown Milwaukie, Oregon.

Those who are homeless, hungry or simply looking for companionship, are received with understanding and respect.

This workshop provides a framework for how to organize and create momentum for social justice in their community. It’s for anyone, from the curious beginner to the established organizer. The content is an overview of activism and organizing in America, including what worked or didn’t work, where we are now and what we see both locally and nationally. The workshop includes an interactive lecture and also discussion.

Agenda:

5:30 - 6:00 Networking

6:00 - 7:30 Workshop

Natalie Sundeleaf Sept is a sixth generation Oregonian with broad ties to the political and art communities of Portland. Her work includes time with Congresswoman Bonamici and Commissioner Fish, as well as President Obama’s 2008 campaign. She was most recently an advance staffer for Hillary Clinton.

Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other.

Portland Underground Grad School Happy Hour: Problem Solving Sorting Hat
The Slide Inn

According to a Harvard study, social interaction is the second biggest influence on happiness, right after sleep. This happy hour is all about strengthening the social bonds in Portland by creating generosity and helping each other out.

The idea is called the the Problem-Solving Sorting Hat (PSSH). This is what we'll do: everyone will write on slips of paper a problem that they need help on. Examples:

  1. I need a babysitter in NE.
  2. I need a handyman to fix my gutters
  3. I'm looking for informational interviews in public engagement.

All the problems are put into a hat and then read out loud. Together we'll offer our networks to connect the person to resources. After we go through all the problems, we'll have open socializing so everyone can connect more with people they can help out.

Come at 6p to grab food or drink. PSSH will start at 630. Connection, play, and problem-solving. Come and have some fun and experience generosity!

Whitenoise: Aitken / Fletcher / Santos readings and discussion
High and Low Art Space and Gallery

The Whitenoise project is a reading and discussion series aiming to center voices from underrepesented communities (PoC, Queer, Femme, and people with disabilities).

Neil Aitken / Jenna Marie Fletcher / Pamela K. Santos + open mic!

This month we will also start out with an open mic, so please bring a poem or two to share!

Neil Aitken is the author of two books of poetry, The Lost Country of Sight (Anhinga 2008), which won the Philip Levine Prize, and Babbage’s Dream (Sundress 2017), as well as a chapbook of poetry, Leviathan (Hyacinth Girl Press 2016). He is the founding editor of Boxcar Poetry Review and his own poems have appeared or are forthcoming in The Adroit Journal, American Literary Review, Ninth Letter, Southern Poetry Review, and other literary journals.

Jenna Marie Fletcher is a writer, talker and chronic-dabbler based out of Portland, OR. Mostly interested in vaguely romantic experiences, sharp things, and telling a good story, her work circles around the messy intersections of race, queerness, and chronic illness. Poetry, essays and weird art can be found all over the internet and in print; many different places all with the same aim – to try to take up space and to take up space by trying. whatsmineisyrs.com

Pamela K. Santos is a sometime writer, full-time KBOO community radio membership director, forever mom, and all-the-time radio host/producer who talks an inordinate amount about being from Queens, NY. She is always judging your food, but you can judge her food chronicled as #BombArchipelagoEats on IG @archipelagoeats, random tweets @pamelaksantos on Twitter and web home pamelaksantos.com.

All ages! ~ $5-10 suggested donation to support the artists. Note: it is ADA accessible, but no ADA bathrooms. Also, please dress warmly because the gallery is a little drafty.

100% Renewable Energy - City Council Hearing & Vote
Portland City Hall

NEW DATE: JUNE 1ST @ 2PM

The City of Portland is poised to pass a new policy setting a goal to meet 100% of our community wide energy needs with renewable energy by 2050 and 100% of our electricity needs with renewable energy by 2030!

Why does this matter? In order to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, we need rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and to transition off of fossil fuels! Transitioning our energy system to clean & renewable energy is an important way to both reduce our impact on the climate and create a sustainable local economy.

Read a copy of the latest draft resolution online: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/auditor/article/636842

The Mayor and Commissioner Chloe Eudaly are championing the policy, but we need a huge turnout to ensure our Mayor and Commissioners pass the policy in its strongest form!

Here’s how you can help.

  1. Come to the hearing on June 1st.
  2. Call the Mayor and City Commissioners to express your support for 100% renewable energy (talking points and contact info below)
  3. Invite 5 friends to join you in supporting 100% renewable energy

Let the City Council know:

  • You support a goal for 100% community wide renewable electricity by 2030
  • You support a goal for 100% community wide renewable energy (all sectors - electricity, transportation, heating & cooling, industrial processes) by 2050
  • Renewable energy solutions that are rooted in equity and social justice
  • Upon passing the resolution, the City and individual commissioners should testify in writing and/or in person to the Oregon Public Utility Commission against allowing PGE to build new gas plants at Carty.
  • Thank them for their strong leadership on a rapid transition to clean energy!

Cultivate Resistance! Direct Action Training for Groups
TBD

Our capacity to resist is directly correlated to our capacity to self-organize on a massive scale. We invite you to join us for a training for groups of people who want to develop their ability to take powerful strategic collective action.

This training will introduce basic non-violent direct action strategies and tactics to groups who are completely new to organizing, and will provide next steps and development to groups who have been working together for a while.

We ask that you show up in a group; a group does not need to be any kind of formal organization, although it totally CAN be those people. We ask that groups be made up of at least 3 people, and encourage much larger groups to attend as well. If you don't have a group and would like to come as an individual, please register and let us know why you are interested in attending on your own.

So grab your friends, family, neighbors, activist group, church group, study group, or any group you have affinity with and sign up together!

This training we will be providing information and training on how to prepare and develop a direct action. We will be sending out a more detailed breakdown of the agenda to folks that sign up. Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeBNrCYP9YEBl5R36WkYDSzvl83M-HmAYml0082u1vcb5ZpiQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

Men's Assembly for Collective Accountability 3: Interrupting Oppression
SEIU Local 503

Men's Assembly for Collective Accountability #3: Interrupting Oppression and Violence

Join us Monday, May 29th at 6:30 pm for our third men's assembly. This event will be led by WOC anti-oppression facilitator May Cat. We will be getting in groups and practicing tactics for interrupting oppression. Leave with the knowledge of what to say when violence is happening around you, and how to help stop gender and race-based violence as it's happening.

Due to the low compensation our panelist received at the last men's assembly (only $30 after retraumatizing themselves with stories of survival, YIKES), we will be charging for tickets to ensure that our panelists get paid. Please pay as much as you can -- consider that people get into $40,000 of debt to get the resources and education that femmes are providing, and pay what it's worth to you.

If you cannot pay, message the Men's Assembly for Collective Accountability facebook page for work trade. You can also sign up for a sponsored seat, which will only be granted if other men pay for it.

This event is open to people of all genders, and is meant to give folks who benefit from the patriarchy a chance to learn to be better under the guidance of femmes of color. We strongly encourage nonmen who are attending not to sponsor a seat: caretaking is feminized labor, and men are often enabled not to take care of each other. Those tickets are strictly to give men a platform to step up.

Woman and woman aligned POC who would like to attend are invited to attend for free. Message the men's assembly to get on the a code.

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR TICKETS PURCHASED BY NOON ON SUNDAY MAY 28th OR YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED INTO THE EVENT.

Childcare and food will be provided

Resisting Borders, Returning Land: Building Movements of Solidary
PSU Smith Center

As border militarization and mechanisms of state security and surveillance dominate national discourse in the wake of the Trump administration, social movements are responding to rapidly organize in opposition to regimes of deportation, violent border enforcement, incarceration, and population and demographic management, and the xenophobic, racist and heterosexist ideas that they mobilize. As support for migrant and refugee justice gains more popular support, it is critical these movements do not fall victim to the state's narratives of respectability and legality. There exists a well-intentioned myth of the hardworking and tax-paying immigrant, the patriotic refugee, or the heteronormative nuclear family who are business owners, all of whom are deserving of support and sanctuary because they assimilate into US capitalism and hegemony. Movements that fall in line with that narrative and myth sacrifice the communities most vulnerable and impacted by western imperialism and European settler colonialism, only to reify the position of the state as a legitimate and neutral arbiter of immigration and border policy, instead of a source of great structural and systemic violence.

This panel brings together scholars and activists from different movements and communities to open dialogue on building and sustaining movements for migrant justice that are rooted in anti-colonial politics. The presenters will foster discourse critical of the state and capitalism as the drivers of violence and war, forced migration, displacement, dispossession, occupation, and border militarization. This event seeks to build out strategies for movement building and coalition building, drawing upon the amazing organizing of work of the panelists, and centering the freedom to move, the freedom to stay, the freedom to return, and the returning of stolen land as political pillars moving forward.

Those who become official Committee members will be linked via email or messenger for ongoing group discussion/communication and will be free to start working together on local issues under the supervision of the Committee Chair.

This is a great way to develop a strong network of advocates and activists and to share ideas and resources so that together we can build lasting progress for our children, our planet and our fellow HUMAN beings.

Voices 2017: Nothing About Us Without Us
Curious Comedy Theater

About the theme: inspired by the activism of advocates in the community of people with disabilities, "Nothing About Us Without Us" represents that OPAL pushes for self-determination and inclusion of all people in the policies which affect us - low income people, people of color, people with disabilities and more. All OPAL, BRU, and YEJA campaigns are led by highly-impacted people, and the leadership of people with disabilities in Bus Riders Unite also inspired us to choose this theme.

Every year, OPAL hosts Voices of the People’s History, an event that celebrates diverse movement leaders by sharing their stories, in their own words. Members of our community perform readings of notable speeches and essays from inspiring figures past and present, a radically-empowering opportunity to hear the echoes of history in the present day. It’s a yearly gathering that brings us closer together while strengthening our resolve to fight for racial, social and economic justice. It’s important for us to amplify movement leaders, because we know that nobody else can tell our stories. We have to do this for ourselves.

Through Voices, we emphasize that our struggles are a continuation of past struggles – and justice has always had champions. All modern organizers stand on the shoulders of the giants whose words and voices we celebrate.

The 2017 Voices event returns the Curious Comedy Theater on the evening of July 11th. Curious Comedy Theatre, located in heart of Vanport Square, is accessible by public transportation via buses #6, 44, 72, and is wheelchair accessible. Parking is available at no charge behind Vanport Square. Bike parking is available outside of the theatre doors and outside Old Town Pizza around the corner. Curious Comedy is an all-ages venue, but tickets are required for children who need to sit in their own seat.

The hosted hors d’oeuvres will feature tasty and filling selections for most dietary needs: gluten free, vegetarian/vegan. Please let us know in advance of any considerations which you may need to make your evening enjoyable and comfortable with us!

Tickets go on sale April 19th, and will sell out well in advance of the event. Mark your calendars!

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information call Shawn at 503 774 4503 or email shawn@opalpdx.org

Accessibility: Curious Comedy Theater is ADA accessible on the ground floor including the bathroom.
