    Portland Stands United Against Hate

    Portland City Hall

    On Friday, May 26 on a MAX train in NE Portland, right-wing extremist Jeremy Christian attacked and killed two men and wounded another, for daring to challenge his racist, islamophobic attack on two young women. Jeremy’s act was not an isolated event. Rather, it represents an emboldening of the right-wing across this country, whose rhetoric and actions have been supported by an openly racist, misogynist, bigoted administration in the White House.

    In solidarity with immigrant and Muslim communities who are under attack, and in honor of these heroic victims, the undersigned groups are calling on local labor unions, student groups, faith groups, community organizations, activists, students and concerned residents for a peaceful mass mobilization in front of City Hall on Sunday, June 4th at 12:30 pm. Now is the time to show these bigots, this country, and the world that Portland stands united and will not tolerate this hate. We must reclaim our city and repudiate the violence and hatred of the far-right.

    Jeremy Christian is a known white nationalist who has attended recent events hosted by local Far Right organizations. Similarly, these groups have organized a “free speech rally” on June 4th at Terry Schrunk Plaza. Their plan is to instill fear and spread messages of hatred to Portland’s Immigrant, Muslim, Jewish, Indigenous, and LGBTQ+ communities.

    We seek to mobilize the greatest number of people in front of City Hall; separate from, but adjacent to, the right-wing rally. This will be a peaceful event to show, through our numbers and our voices, that the vast majority of Portland will not stand for racism and bigotry.

  • Portland: Join Refuse Fascism Team at "United Against Hate" Rally

    Portland City Hall

    Join the Refuse Fascism Northwest team at protests in Portland this Sunday (https://www.facebook.com/events/132908870603607/permalink/134883070406187/) in response to the recent fascist killings and in counter protest against a fascist rally. To meet up with the team, look for the big, tall, black & white banner in the photo posted below that says "NO! Drive Out the Trump-Pence Fascist Regime" Help amplify this demand, amongst the people in Portland and in the eyes of the world and national media.

    "On May 26 in Portland, Oregon, Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche and Ricky John Best were stabbed to death and Micah Fletcher was hospitalized for stopping a Trump supporter from spewing racist, anti-Muslim hate at two teenage girls. These men were heroes! Live like them!

    Meche, Best, and Fletcher did not know the young women, but they recognized their humanity. They didn’t ask, “What will happen to me?” They asked what will happen to these young women if we don’t intervene?

    Every person in this country must ask themselves a similar question: What will be done to Muslims, immigrants, refugees, women, LGBTQ, Black people, people around the world, and the planet itself if we don’t put ourselves on the line to stop the fascist Trump/Pence Regime and the whole tidal wave of xenophobic hatred and racist violence it has unleashed?"

    100% Renewable Energy - City Council Hearing & Vote
    free

    NEW DATE: JUNE 1ST @ 2PM

    The City of Portland is poised to pass a new policy setting a goal to meet 100% of our community wide energy needs with renewable energy by 2050 and 100% of our electricity needs with renewable energy by 2030!

    Why does this matter? In order to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, we need rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and to transition off of fossil fuels! Transitioning our energy system to clean & renewable energy is an important way to both reduce our impact on the climate and create a sustainable local economy.

    Read a copy of the latest draft resolution online: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/auditor/article/636842

    The Mayor and Commissioner Chloe Eudaly are championing the policy, but we need a huge turnout to ensure our Mayor and Commissioners pass the policy in its strongest form!

    Here’s how you can help.

    1. Come to the hearing on June 1st.
    2. Call the Mayor and City Commissioners to express your support for 100% renewable energy (talking points and contact info below)
    3. Invite 5 friends to join you in supporting 100% renewable energy

    Let the City Council know:

    • You support a goal for 100% community wide renewable electricity by 2030
    • You support a goal for 100% community wide renewable energy (all sectors - electricity, transportation, heating & cooling, industrial processes) by 2050
    • Renewable energy solutions that are rooted in equity and social justice
    • Upon passing the resolution, the City and individual commissioners should testify in writing and/or in person to the Oregon Public Utility Commission against allowing PGE to build new gas plants at Carty.
    • Thank them for their strong leadership on a rapid transition to clean energy!

    Relocation Assistance Rally & Hearing

    Portland City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly has proposed the boldest tenant-protection law the city has ever seen: requiring landlords to pay relocation assistance to tenants displaced due to no-cause evictions or rent hikes. You can read more at the Willamette Week: http://www.wweek.com/news/city/2017/01/24/city-council-releases-plan-to-make-portland-landlords-pay-moving-costs-for-renters-they-evict-for-no-cause/

    This is HUGE, and we need EVERYONE who's able to join us next Thursday, February 2nd at Portland City Hall to demand our City Council pass relocation assistance for renters.

    We'll be hosting a rally at City Hall at 1pm, and the hearing itself will begin promptly at 2pm.

    If you have been or are at risk of being displaced from your home because of a no-cause eviction or rent increase, Portland City Council needs to hear from you! Please consider testifying in front of Council next Thursday, and contact Portland Tenants United to let us know you want to speak!

    You can also email or call City Council officers at the numbers & addresses below - in particular, Commissioners Saltzman, Fish, and Fritz need to hear from you. We encourage you to share your story with your elected officials, or just a short message of support: "relocation assistance would give displaced tenants a little room to breathe - please support Commissioner Eudaly's proposal next Thursday!"
