    And the ban played on - the long saga of censorship

    Midland Library

    Registration required; register on the library's website at https://multcolib.org/events/and-ban-played/80130

    Many rulers and societies throughout history have attempted control who is remembered, what is to be seen and heard, and how we are to behave. In our country, where the First Amendment remains a nearly sacred document, there’s always been heated debate regarding exactly how “free” creative minds really are when it comes to expressing feelings and ideas.

    This program explores some of the history of the long saga of censorship and the need some cultures have to silence certain writers, artists and musicians. We’ll examine the probable roots/causes of censorship and explore whether total freedom of expression is actually possible.

    Made possible by The National Endowment for the Humanities Fund of The Library Foundation.

    Uplift, Understand, Upskill Young Pacific Islanders

    Midland Library

    This is a storytelling event created for youth to share a space not only to listen but to exchange stories, narratives, and experiences in hopes to uplift, understand, and upskill each other. Our mission is to break the barriers of Pacific Islander youth by interchanging stories to help us realize our validity and get motivated to go above and beyond with schools and/or with our communities.

    In this event, we will be highlighting stories of the lifestyles of other young Pacific Islander students.

    Please feel free to invite your friends, families, and community members to join us listening and sharing our own narratives.

    East Portland Leadership Training with Oregon Women's Campaign School

    Midland Library

    Since November 2016, we’ve seen an enormous demand from our supporters and from Oregonians around the state for real tools to fight back against the continued attacks on women and reproductive rights. There is a lot at stake, but we are encouraged to see so many new faces getting involved in the fight for reproductive justice!

    As a response to this increased demand, the Oregon Women’s Campaign School - an organization that works to train the next generation of pro-choice leaders and activists - will be hosting a number of regional trainings designed to give you the tools you need to jump start your political career.

    One of regional trainings will be on July 9th in East Portland, from 2:00 to 3:30 PM at the Midland Library. It’s an opportunity for our members and supporters to engage with OWCS and learn what it takes to jump into campaign life.

    The East Portland training will feature special guests from the area who know what it takes to run a successful campaign, and who will help walk participants through the 5 things they need to know to work in Oregon politics.

    The Oregon Women's Campaign School provides a biennial, non-partisan, skill-building weekend for pro-choice candidates, campaign staff and activists.
