From Maxville to Vanport
Alberta Rose Theatre

A live performance of the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble’s “From Maxville to Vanport” featuring poetry by Renee Mitchell, music by Ezra Weiss, and video by Kalimah Abioto.

This piece of community-guided music incorporates the stories of two unique towns in Oregon’s history, Maxville and Vanport, in songs for Marilyn Keller with our 12-member jazz ensemble. Maxville and Vanport both had significant multicultural populations at a time when Oregon was particularly unfriendly to non-white residents, and their histories deserve to be heard and better understood by all Oregonians.

The Portland Jazz Composers’ Ensemble is a 12-piece jazz chamber orchestra which commissions and performs original works by its members and by other jazz composers in the Portland music community. The PJCE has received support from the OCF’s 2015 Creative Heights and Small Arts programs, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and the Oregon Arts Commission. Now in its tenth year, the PJCE has commissioned more than 50 composers and produced more than 30 concerts of original works.

Screening of Submedia's Trouble: Episodes 3 & 4
Anarres Infoshop

Come catch up on subMedia's Trouble, a monthly documentary series on social resistance around the word. We will be screening and discussing two episodes from the series: #3 Refugees Welcome and #4 No Justice, Just Us.

Episode 3 - Refugees Welcome: Solidarity Across Borders As our world stands on the precipice of more destabilizing wars waged over declining resources, a deepening of structural economic inequality and the onset of cataclysmic climate change, dramatic movements of human populations are inevitable. What is not yet inevitable is how humanity will respond to this crisis. This episode features interviews with a number of individuals from around the world who are helping to chart a course for the future based on living practices of solidarity and mutual aid, and who are invested in tearing down the physical and imaginary borders that seek to keep us divided.

Episode 2: No Justice, Just Us: Movements Against State Repression The institutional pillars of domination and exploitation are well-entrenched in society, well-versed in manipulation, and utterly ruthless in their efforts to crush any and all threats to their legitimacy. Our future success and growth demands that we develop the capacity to anticipate the strategies and tactics that the state will use against us, build our own infrastructure to defend against these attacks, and incorporate meaningful solidarity and collective defense into all facets of our organizing. This episode of Trouble interviews a number of individuals engaged in legal defense and prisoner solidarity, and looks at some of the ways we can begin to build movements that are more resilient in the face of state repression.

Vote for socialist Democratic Primary candidate Eric Hafner
Drop off at Ballot Box or Mail-in with enough time to arrive before 5/15.

Eric Hafner has been (and still technically is) homeless, the victim of false arrest, illegal incarceration and police brutality but works as a Criminal Defense Consultant and is an Ordained Rastafari Minister, who also has been a Union Organizer and Medical Cannabis Policy Advisor to a local government. Now he's hoping to go from being homeless to being an elected Democrat in Congress, offering a left-wing socialist alternative as a Democratic candidate challenging incumbent Earl Blumenauer in the primary.
Incumbent Earl Blumenauer voted to ban gay marriage, gets most of his money from sweatshop labor company Nike, and supports anti-worker, anti-union, pro-polluter "free trade agreements" like TPP. Vote by May 15, 2018. Any questions e-mail eric@erichafner.com

Keaton Otis Vigil
NE 6th & NE Halsey

Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police over six years ago, May 12, 2010. The police admitted they stopped him for "looking like a gangster". They shot him 23 times after tazing him while he sat in the driver's seat. Later police said Keaton had a gun, but have yet to produce it.

Keaton's father Fred Bryant held a monthly vigil on the 12 of every month since his son's murder on the spot where Keaton's life was taken. Fred Bryant did this for over three years, fighting for justice for his son, every single month in the rain, the dark, the heat, the snow. Fred Bryant passed away October 29, 2013.

His family and community have committed to continuing the vigils every month on the 12th, until justice is achieved for Keaton, for Fred, for our whole community.

Please join that struggle this month and help to spread the word.

Those We Glimpse: Experiments in Intergenerational Queerstory Storysharing Finale
Q Center

For the last month, we've been exploring intergenerational ties at the Q Center Gallery and collecting queer* anecdotes, fragments, rumors and speculations from contributors’ blood families. This is the wrap-up! Come share your own story or read aloud from our anonymous contributions. There will be food provided, feel free to bring something to add to the buffet!

For many of us, coming out as queer casts us out from our own 'official' family stories and leaves us searching for ancestors—for that larger web from which we draw strength and context. But for every famous historical queer, there are thousands more who lived un-famous, half-glimpsed, or closeted lives, under many different names.

Have some queer stories, rumors or might-have-beens to share from your own family or where you grew up? Contribute online at http://zephrocious.com/contribute. More info: zephrocious.com/glimpsePDX

Black Girl in Suburbia
Southridge High School Auditorium

Black Girl In Suburbia is a 55 minute feature documentary, from local filmmaker Melissa Lowery, that looks into the experiences of black girls growing up in predominately White communities around Portland, Oregon. This is a different look into suburbia from the perspective of women of color. This film explores through professional and personal interviews the conflict and issues black girls have relating to both white and black communities.

There are many girls out there who have stories to tell about struggle and triumph, but have never had an outlet to share. That’s why this film is so important!

Black Girl In Suburbia intends to spark an open dialogue about race, identity, and perspective among all people. In hopes that these discussions will allow us to look at perceptions of ourselves, others and the community we live in as a whole.

Following the showing of the film, there will be panel response by representatives of Southridge High Schools various student caucuses.

YWCA of Greater Portland's 26th Annual Inspire Luncheon
The Sentinel Hotel

The YWCA’s mission is to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. That’s why in the past year thousands of people have turned to the YWCA seeking ways to constructively respond to the distractions pouring out of Washington DC, Hollywood, and nature in figurative and literal tidal waves. And we’ve provided them with opportunities through our numerous programs and advocacy efforts because we believe change happens individually as well as systemically.

Still, we all hunger for good news, for hope, for something to remind us of our shared humanity.

And that’s what we want to share with you this year at the YWCA’s Annual Inspire Luncheon on April 24, 2018, from 11:00 am to 1:15 pm at the Sentinel Hotel in downtown Portland. This year, Imago Theatre will be providing a performance that will force you to suspend your disbelief with their combination of mime, acrobatics, and humor. Internationally acclaimed, Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad, the creators of Imago, have been called alchemists, magicians, theatrical animators and physical comedians.

In the words of the Boston Globe:

“Rare theatrical event – family-friendly entertainment … lively … inventive … remarkably acrobatic … mysterious … deeply satisfying … sensational … thrilling … hysterical … truly goofy fun … now, that’s entertainment …”

We hope you will join us for this opportunity to support the work of the YWCA of Greater Portland while enjoying Imago Theatre. I truly believe that on April 24th, you will leave saying to yourself and others, “Now that was time well spent! I am so glad I went!”

SPONSORSHIPS

Demonstrate your commitment as a civic partner by supporting the YWCA’s programs through a sponsorship of our 26th Annual Inspire Luncheon. You’ll gain invaluable exposure to over 600 of Portland’s leading business and community members and goodwill exposure through our marketing efforts across print and online channels.
