Middle Class Alliance June Meeting - Special Date!
Elmer's Restaurant, Vancouver

Join us for a special Middle Class Alliance meeting on a special date, June 27! At that meeting, we will bring to a conclusion our discussion about the Middle Class Alliance's action strategies and priorities related to the homeless issue.

Also, we will have a presentation on the Work Source trade skills and training cooperative between Clark College and contractors Tapani, Rotschy and Nutter. We will learn about their program and talk about their successes in training and hiring people to fill vacancies in construction trade jobs, which supports our Middle Class Alliance goal of more middle class jobs.

And, following up where we left off last month, we will have a 50-50 drawing to raise funds for MCA outreach activities.

If you plan to come, please note the change in date this month only, and please click "Going" or email me your RSVP to Chuck.green1407@gmail.com.

As always, we ask you to make a purchase to offset Elmer's costs as they are giving us use of this room for free.

We will be taking the summer off, but look for some interesting topics come September!

Chuck Green, Chair Middle Class Alliance

Clinton St Resistance presents Pink Floyd: The Wall on 35mm - Night Strike fundraiser
Clinton Street Theater

Here on Clinton Corner, we're doing our bit to make things better with a FREE movie every Monday night. We're taking donations for a good cause, so come to the Clinton Street Theater and drop $5 in the bucket.

Special treat--brought to you on 35mm

"Nothing is put together for you, but all the pieces of the puzzle are there for you to create what you want. It's refreshing to see a movie that is completely out of the box, and doesn't follow any present forumla. THE WALL is a great rock opera." Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine

This week's screening is a Fundraiser for Night Strike.

Night Strike is a community gathering that mobilizes volunteers/services, meets felt needs, and develops relationships that transform lives. It is a unique opportunity for people to spend time under the Burnside Bridge every Thursday night to love people because people matter. It is an opportunity for members of Portland’s homeless community to hang out, enjoy a hot meal, receive a free haircut or shave, have their feet washed and have their old shoes/clothes/sleeping bags replaced. It is also a chance for you to come down and share in the experience, help serve the needs of the homeless in our community, and more importantly, invest in lives and build relationships with the people you meet.

We Can Listen: Urban Village Making By Design
The Old Church Concert Hall

Village-Making in Portland by Design: Responding to Homelessness in our City

Doors 6:30 pm - All Ages - Bar with ID

Admission is free! Your donation at the door will support future "We Can Listen" events.

On May 9th, Grammy-nominated local recording artist and theatrical performer Julianne Johnson will moderate We Can Listen: Together We Make a Village. The conversation will focus on recent efforts to address homelessness in Portland through a design process that brought together a range of stakeholders, including architects, activists, city agencies, and houseless individuals. We will offer our stage to members of Portland's homeless community, along with representatives from the Center for Public Interest Design and the POD Initiative as they discuss The Kenton Women's Village, in NE Portland, as a model for supporting community making and strong social infrastructure among villages of houseless individuals.

A cultural intersection of storytelling, documentary, music, and personal expression where all voices have the right to be heard, We Can Listen is a free monthly series, and is open to all. Every 2nd Tuesday of the month March-June and Sept-Dec at The Old Church.

The intention and heart of the "We Can Listen series is to give Portlanders young and old multiple opportunities to hear a variety of speakers share their perspectives on todays most important social justice topics in a moderator-led conversational setting. The goals are to build community, educate, and share the positive impact that truly listening to diverse voices can have on us all.

The We Can Listen series will present speakers both well-regarded and new to public discourse on topics Portlanders have demonstrated are important to them: Native American rights and abuses, racism, the homelessness crisis, the environment and clean water, immigration and refugee issues, gender equality, disability and health care, hunger and food security, civic engagement strategies for adults and youth, and other compelling social justice issues.

With We Can Listen, The Old Church wants to give those speakers and listeners a trusted, respectful and inspirational gathering space, which we believe will result in important civil discourse and self-directed, self-sufficient modes of action.

The Old Church was built in 1882 and is a nonprofit, non-religious historic landmark and performance space.
