    Bystander Intervention Workshop


    In light of recent tragic events and in honor of the heroes who protected two teenage girls on the Max from a hateful racist attack, bystander intervention workshops have been organized with the help of Teressa Raiford of Dont Shoot Portland. The goal of this workshop is to learn how to be an ally when we encounter threats to others in our communities, and how we can reduce danger for the most vulnerable while keeping ourselves and others safe.

    Please join us Saturday, August 19th at TaborSpace in the Annex (lower level, wheelchair accessible) for a bystander support/intervention training workshop facilitated by Teressa Raiford, Lara Jones and Hanna Davis.

    We are asking for a suggested $20+ sliding scale donation to benefit Don't Shoot Portland.


    Dont Shoot Portland - In August 2014 we agreed to take political action and organize at Dawson Park to be in solidarity with the growing response from Ferguson, MO #MikeBrown

    As tensions flare and incidents of public hate skyrocket, join us as we explore what inhibits us from interrupting hate.

    Voices From the Front Lines: The State of PDX Community Driven Media, a fundraiser for PDX Zine Symposium


    "Voices From the Front Lines”: The State of Community Driven Media in Portland featuring Zahir Janmohamed (The Racist Sandwich), Melanie Stevens (Miss Anthology Comics & The Nat Turner Project), Andre Middleton (Open Signal, XRayFM), and Israel Bayer (Street Roots).

    July 6th, 2017, Thursday Doors at 6:30p, Panel starts at 7:00pm TaborSpace (5441 SE Belmont St, PDX) $7-10 Sliding Scale (All proceeds go to the Portland Zine Symposium) portlandzinesymposium.org

    This is PZS's annual fundraiser, and we are attempting to raise $500 help offset the cost of port-o-potty rentals. Please help us raise the necessary funds! Your donations are appreciated!

    Portland Zine Symposium - An organization that since 2001 has put on events to celebrate and support small press and DIY culture.

    The Racist Sandwich - A podcast about food, race, gender, and class, hosted by chef Soleil Ho and journalist Zahir Janmohamed. Produced by Juan Ramirez.

    Miss Anthology’s mission is to support racially and economically diverse young comic artists of the female diaspora by teaching professional skills through hands-on workshops, and publishing their work online and in print. By introducing female and genderqueer artists and writers to the comics and the art industries before they graduate, they will gain a firm understanding and head start on their careers, as well as an established network of peers within this otherwise male-dominated field.

    The Nat Turner Project allows artists of color to go beyond the usual initial expositions inherent in presenting art borne of marginalized perspectives to a dominant culture; allowing artists of color freedom to create or express their own language within and without the parameters of racial commodification or designation. NTP creates an environment of inclusivity, a communal harbor for artists previously silenced by institutional constraints, and actively provides priority spaces to artists of color; allowing others the privilege of viewership from an outsider role. Nat Turner Project, not just a name, but a statement of artistic freedom.

    Open Signal: Portland Community Media Center - With a commitment to creativity, technology and social change, Open Signal makes media production possible for everyone. We provide skills, equipment, inspiration and we amplify local voices on five cable channels.

    XRAY.FM is an independent, not-for-profit radio station which supports the Pacific Northwest’s music and arts communities. It fulfills its educational mission through airing local public affairs programs featuring voices seldom heard on radio, and broadcasting a diverse array of music, with a focus on new, local, independent, and experimental recordings. XRAY.FM also serves as a resource for training community members in radio, broadcasting, and digital media.

    Street Roots creates income opportunities for people experiencing homelessness and poverty by producing a newspaper and other media that are catalysts for individual and social change.

    Portland Indivisible Congressional Lobbying Training - 2 days!


    Please note: this is a two day event, May 24th and June 7th. Both are Wednesdays. The class is FREE but requires an RSVP.

    If you've ever wanted to organize a visit with a group of friends or community members, but weren't sure how to do so effectively, this training is for you!

    This class is targeted for beginners, and should be a comfortable introduction to lobbying, even if you have no previous experience. We will walk through the experience of planning, scheduling, preparing for, and attending a meeting with a congressional office.

    This small group training will be delivered in two Monday sessions. This will simulate the steps you take to plan a real meeting.

    In the first session (5/24), we'll discuss the formation of a group, the selection of issues, the development of an ask, and how to get a meeting scheduled.

    In the second session (6/7), we'll discuss and practice the experience of the meeting itself, while giving attendees the opportunity to experience a few different roles.

    Attendance is limited to 12 to keep the training personal and interactive. Please register only if you can commit to attending both sessions. This ticket registers you for both days.

    This is the second time I've offered this class, and I plan to offer more of these in the future, on different days and times, to allow people with different availability to attend.
