    See the Movie "Friday the 13th” with Multnomah Democrats

    Please RSVP by Sept. 4th to: ViceChair1@multdems.org

    About the film: Filmmaker Ava DuVernay explores the history of racial inequality in the United States, focusing on the fact that the nation's prisons are disproportionately filled with African-Americans. Also Jason Voorhees hacks a lot of people to death with a machete.

    Start a conversation! SURJ August Door Knock is here.

    Please join our August door knocks! Actions like this are a great way to practice having conversations about racial justice with other white folks, which is something our POC partners have asked SURJ to do.

    This month we will have a particular focus on Quanice Hayes, a 17 year old black youth whose violent criminal actions led to his death by Portland Police on February 9, 2017. At the door we'll demand people sign a postcard to Multnomah District Attorney Rod Underhill demanding accountability, training, and an investigation into Quanice's death.

    In the past, participants have wanted more time to knock on doors and talk to people. We are trying something new and inviting experienced people to participate in a follow-up door knock with us on Tuesday, August 29th from 5pm to 8:30pm. We will NOT have a training before the Tuesday door knock, so only sign up if you have already attended one of our door knock trainings on Saturday the 26th or at a previous action.

    WHEN:

    Saturday, August 26th from 12:30 to 4:30

    • All are welcome!

    Tuesday, August 29th from 5pm to 8:30pm

    • For people who have previously done a SURJ doorknock

    WHERE: Hollywood Senior Center at 1820 NE 40th Ave, Portland.

    WHAT: On Saturday, we’ll start with a training, head off in pairs to canvass the Hollywood/Grant Park neighborhoods, and return to the training location to debrief. If you have knocked before and want to skip the training, plan to arrive at 1:30 pm and let us know your plans in advance. On Tuesday, we'll meet to briefly review logistics and materials before heading out to doorknock.

    RSVP: Please let us know if you’re planning to show up! Follow this link to rsvp for either action by Thursday, August 24th.

    --> https://goo.gl/forms/7z8vwIGHnGyU6rBd2
    

    WILL THERE BE SNACKS? Yes! We recommend that you bring a water bottle or travel mug to take with you while canvassing.

    CAN KIDS COME? Yes! But because of limited interest in the past there will not be child care provided.

    If you’re unable to come on August 26th or 29th but wish to remain involved, stay tuned! There will be more opportunities to do so in the future.


    In Solidarity, Erin Durst for the SURJ PDX BLM Action Group

    Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities ( I/DD) Services System Community Forum - Portland
    free

    The service system for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities ( I/DD) has been evolving since Fairview closed in 2000, and Oregon is far from accomplishing the goal of supporting people with I/DD. We’ve recently released a report that shines a light on some of the faults in Oregon’s support system. At this public forum we’ll share what we’ve learned about the I/DD services system, and hear stories and ideas from stakeholders about how we can improve the system together.

    • Meet other consumers, DSPs, and family members in your area

    • Share stories about your experience in the I/DD system

    • Develop ideas together about how we can improve I/DD services

    • Learn how you can take action and organize for systems change
