TBD

LOCATION CHANGE: 1735 SE Grand Ave, Portland, OR 97214-3500, United States

Over the last few years, Basic Rights Oregon's transgender justice program has won amazing gains for transgender Oregonians, including transgender health care through the Oregon Health Plan, an updated insurance bulletin to prevent discrimination in the health insurance market, and the recent passage of HB 2673A, a bill to streamline the process for transgender Oregonians to update their name and gender on their Oregon birth certificates.

Basic Rights Oregon board members Brook Shelley and Rowan Everard invite transgender community members to a special event to hear more about our transgender justice and racial justice programs and how community members can support them. Also hosting are Diane Hames, Rhodes Perry, and Linda Brown.

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.

Drive In - Sleep Out to Put the Brakes on Homelessness in Beaverton! (Family Promise of Beaverton)
through Beaverton Fountain Park

Join Family Promise of Beaverton by Putting the Brakes on Homelessness in Beaverton!

For one night only, come Drive In - Sleep Out with us June 10th at the Beaverton Fountain Park.

You can participate in one of two ways. Commit to spend the night in your car, as a Driver, to raise awareness and money to help end family homelessness in Beaverton. We understand that not everyone is able to sleep in their car overnight, no worries! The second option is to become a Backseat Driver and participate in the event with the option of going home when we turn in for the night.

Please ask friends, family, and others in the community to pledge a flat amount to support you, the Driver, and Family Promise of Beaverton. Drivers can have passengers come along for the ride and help raise funds too. Register your car for just $25. We encourage Driver's and their team of passengers to raise $100 in pledges, however we'd get really revved up if your car brings in more than that. Prizes will be given for the cars that raise the most money. Food, games, music and a movie in the park will kick your fun into overdrive! Funds raised will go to support Family Promise of Beaverton.

Last year, over 1,600 students in the Beaverton School District were affected by housing instability or found themselves without any shelter at all. Please help families take a U-Turn toward success in an effort to make sure every student has the stability they need.

Family Promise of Beaverton is a Social Services agency in Beaverton, Oregon. "We are a united community helping stabilize and transform children and their families experiencing homelessness in Beaverton."
