    OPAL Volunteer Onboarding Part 1

    Help us resist militarization of the police by joining us for volunteer onboarding. Due to our strong stance against militarization of public space, many people have been reaching out to volunteer with OPAL. We maintain our belief that militarization of transit is a false solution. We require all new volunteers to participate in onboarding to make sure that they understand our goals and values. To help volunteers gain the skills that they will need to help us work towards Environmental Justice and a just transition, we will be offering Environmental Justice 101 and Just Transitions 101 at our office at 3202 SE 82nd Ave.Portland. This is the first of two onboarding sessions that we will be offering, with each providing distinct tools for supporting and working with OPAL. Please RSVP or email us to let us know if you will be joining us. The session will be taught in English but translation will be available if it is requested in advance.

    You can read more our about our stance against militarization here: http://www.opalpdx.org/2017/05/against-white-supremacy-militarism-and-false-solutions/ .

    Bean Count! Understanding TriMet's Budget
    free

    A BUDGET IS A MORAL DOCUMENT

    Have you ever wondered how TriMet makes spending decisions? We've studied the budget for 2017-2018 so you don't have to! It's time for our annnual bean count, where we use a whole bunch of jellybeans and a lot of community participation to show you how TriMet chooses to fund projects (like an $11M transit police detention and interrogration facility, or a $22M e-fare system) or to not fund projects (like reduced fares for low-income riders, or expansion of the YouthPass program).

    Join Bus Riders Unite as we break down the budget and show you where TriMet's morals are... not just where they SAY they are, but where they actually choose to spend public dollars.

    Translation and child care available upon request. Food will be provided - please contact us with any other requests to make this event accessible. OPAL's offices and bathroom are ADA accessible. We want you there!
