    Resistance Forums: Portland City Council Position 2

    The Democratic Socialist of America Portland Chapter, The Multnomah County Democrats Community Action Committee, Portland’s Resistance, and The Oregon Working Families Party will be co-hosting forums for four important races in the upcoming May elections. While May elections often see lower voter turnout, engagement, and coverage, they are in many cases even more important than November elections. Our organizations are unified in resistance of the federal administration and hope to hold events in that shared spirit. Our country is at a crossroads and Oregon voters need to know the vision that candidates have for our region’s future.

    Current candidates invited to this forum are:

    • Julia Degraw
    • Nick Fish

    The forums will be every Tuesday in February at different locations throughout the City.

    • February 6, 2018: Oregon State Senate District 24
    • February 13, 2018: Multnomah County Commissioner Position 2
    • February 20, 2018: Portland City Council Position 3
    • February 27, 2018: Portland City Council Position 2

    More details will be released in the following weeks. We look forward to providing a platform for our varied communities to be heard in these elections.
