Where Do We Go From Here: A Public Assembly
Beacon Sound

Details POST INAUGURATION

We have just witnessed the first week of Donald Trump's presidency. Much of what we have seen and experienced has been incredibly challenging, heartbreaking, frightening, shocking, unconstitutional... The list goes on.

As we continue to act against the most recent atrocities committed by this administration in protest, we also maintain an open dialogue with one another, about what steps to take through out the oncoming days, weeks and months.

Similar to the first assembly, we will begin as one large group, then later split up into smaller groups, each guided minimally by a facilitator. Each group will have a few discussion prompts related to the most recent issues, such as the Muslim ban, "normalization", locality and collectivity as tools for national change.


"Where Do We Go From Here?" is an ongoing public assembly for new and experienced activists to speak, listen, connect & unite together in action for collective change.

Mental Health Care Not Policing- June Coalition Meeting #5 (Critical Resistance Portland)
In Other Words Feminist Community Center

Sunday June 11th 10 am-1 pm Snacks provided Childcare available upon request

Critical Resistance Portland (CR-PDX) is developing a campaign to interrupt the use of police as mental health first responders in Portland. We have seen how policing escalates everyday mental health needs or instances of crisis and can result in violence on our communities. It's crucial that Portland disrupt this pattern and invest in community care.

CR Portland wants to impact protocol and funding of mental health crisis services and we’d like to start pulling together organizations and individuals who could be partners or stake holders in this campaign. This includes social service providers, mental health service users, communities targeted by the police, and other racial and economic justice organizations. We are asking people like you who have valuable knowledge and first hand experiences to get involved with this campaign.

Will you join CR-PDX in demanding a city prioritization of quality user-led mental health services that are community-based and outside the hands of law enforcement? June's meeting will be the 5th meeting of the Mental Health Care, Not Policing community coalition.

We invite those directly impacted by policing, mental health users, and all who want to decrease Portland's reliance on policing to attend. Organizations and individuals who are involved in anti-policing, mental health, or social service work in Portland, join us as partners in this effort and share your ideas at this campaign meeting!

Critical Resistance is a prison industrial complex abolitionist organization which means that to do this work we must work to end racism, white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, homophobia and transphobia, anti-blackness, imperialism, and all systems of power that contribute to the caging, separation, harm, surveillance, policing, and killing of ourselves and loved ones, and specifically recognizing that these systems target those in black & brown & queer & trans communities.

The CR PDX chapters members are currently a group of queer & trans folks with a mix of non-black poc and white folks and we all are trained in facilitating spaces with an anti-oppressive and interrupting oppressive moments lens. We are pro-black & brown and queer & trans folks and we committed to hosting events that work to be anti-racist and anti-oppressive.

Please let us know if you will be needing childcare or have specific dietary needs.

Critical Resistance Portland is a political organization, the local chapter of a national organization dedicated to opposing the expansion of the prison industrial complex.

HUMAN Public Outreach Meeting & Committee Workshop
ILWU Local 4, Vancouver

We invite the community to join The Humanitarian United Movement & Action Network (HUMAN) on Sunday, June 11th from 6-9pm at the local ILWU as our board of directors host the very first Public Outreach Meeting and Committee Building Workshop. Many of you were invited because you recently expressed interest in getting involved with one or more of our core, issue-based Committees, including:

  • The Environmental Advocacy Committee
  • The Social Justice & Human Rights Committee
  • The Health & Wellness Committee
  • The Education & Opportunity Committee
  • The Resolutions Committee

Whether you would like to join one of these Committees or just learn a bit more about HUMAN we would love to have you there! The first portion of the meeting will include an introduction of our board, a detailed explanation of our vision for the community, past and upcoming events as well as various ways we plan to take action and become effective advocates on the local and state level. The second portion of the meeting will be for the actual Committee building itself. The respective Chairs of each Committee will divide the group up based on their interests and those groups will exchange contact information and brainstorm ideas for future actions, events, research, resolutions, petitions and community outreach projects. 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.

Hope to see you all there!

Public Meeting: Defeat Trumpcare! Fight for Medicare for all!
PSU Smith Center

PUBLIC SOCIALIST ALTERNATIVE MEETING:

Defeat Trumpcare! Fight for Medicare for all!

EVENT DETAILS

When: Saturday, July 12, 7:00 PM

Where: PSU SMSU 329

Join Socialist Alternative for a public meeting as part of the #OccupyTrumpcare National Day of Action against Trumpcare and to discuss the need for a Medicare-for-all single-payer system.

WHY WE'RE FIGHTING BACK

Trumpcare is a savage attack on working people and the poor. If passed, it will deny tens of millions access to healthcare and represent one of the greatest transfers of wealth from the working class to the 1% in U.S. history through massive tax cuts for the super-rich and corporations.

Trumpcare can be defeated. We need a full mobilization of the opposition to Trumpcare through rallies, protests, and occupations of Republican Senators’ offices nationwide. The Republicans are struggling to overcome internal divisions, but we need to keep the pressure up to ensure defeat of Trumpcare. We need to not just fight back against Trump’s attacks on health care, but for universal single-payer healthcare. There is mass opposition across the country, we need all opponents of Trumpcare to unite behind a strategy of mobilizing the full breadth of that opposition, similar to the mass rallies around Trump’s inauguration when millions marched in the streets. With a well-organized mobilization and an escalating series of mass actions we can help ensure the Republican bill fails. Join Portland Socialist Alternative to discuss next steps in fighting back against Trumpcare.
