At a time when our nation is seriously divided and reports of discrimination are rising as a result of the 2016 election, 2017 is going to be the most important year yet for Know Your City’s mission of sharing stories of humanity. Because of this, we’ve entered into a partnership with Portland’s Resistance and other community partners to host Resistance Talks. Resistance Talks will be a series of monthly events that will discuss some of the most pressing social justice issues of our time and call our community to action. Our second Resistance Talks is focused on Public Education, hearing specifically from candidates for Portland Public Schools and PCC Zone 5. Our forum will cover a diversity of education concerns, including the school to prison pipeline, school vouchers, DACA, and school funding.

Candidates include:

PPS Zone 4 Rita Moore Jamila Singleton Munson PPS Zone 5 Scott Bailey Virginia La Forte PPS Zone 6 Julia Brim Edwards Josie Simonis

PCC Zone 5 Valdez Bravo Moses Ross

Join us at PCC Cascade Auditorium, 705 N Killingsworth St, Portland, OR 97217 Suggested donation is $5.
