    Please RSVP at https://goo.gl/BUar5n so we can plan for those who will be attending.

    When we examine our political reality, it's easy to get frustrated and feel powerless. RIGHT NOW, the Neighborhood Leader Program - Multnomah Edition provides an opportunity to reclaim the power of the people, and you can help us share that power with your own neighbors like never before! Become a trusted messenger and a gateway to greater involvement in the political process.

    • 35 households, about 4 times per year, right outside your door
    • Build neighborhood connections
    • Empowered communities
    • Increased voter turnout
    • Leveled trainings through the Multnomah Democrats

    Let's work together, build community, and elect candidates who respond to the people they represent!

    If you have a laptop or tablet please bring one. They are helpful when learning how to access your turf! Paper turf is an alternative option, which you would need to print out at home after the training.

    Multnomah County Democrats Book Discussion - July 16, Aug 6, Sept 10, Oct 1

    Book discussion: Timothy Snyder, ON TYRANNY, 20 Lessons from the 20th Century

    • Four Sundays: July 16, August 6, September 10, October 1
    • Time: 12-2pm
    • Location: Multdems HQ, 3551 Sandy Boulevard

    How to participate: Sign up in advance for one or all meetings by sending an email to 4vc2@lesliedavis.net.

    Please join fellow Dems for a discussion of this brief, instructive book. We will take up 5 of the 20 lessons at each group. On Sunday, July 16, at 12-2pm, we will discuss the first 5 principles:

    1. Do not obey in advance.
    2. Defend institutions.
    3. Beware the one-party state.
    4. Take responsibility for the face of the world.
    5. Remember professional ethics.

    Our discussion will follow the 3-step model, What? So what? Now what?

    • The first task – What? - is to understand each lesson well enough to explain it in your own words.
    • The second task – So what? – is to interpret each lesson and identify current, real-life examples.
    • The third task – Now what? – is to plan concrete, effective actions that implement the lesson.

    But this won’t be merely an intellectual exercise. Every participant will walk out of the discussion with a plan to do at least one thing – a specific, tangible action – that will build wider engagement and small-d democracy. Please join us.

    Leslie Davis, discussion leader, has done graduate work in European history at UCLA, where she earned an M.A., and at U of O, where she was a Ph.D. student and Graduate Teaching Fellow.

    Timothy Snyder, author, is a professor of history at Yale University. A scholar of twentieth-century central and eastern Europe, he has written several books, including Bloodlands: Between Hitler and Stalin and Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning. He is a member of the Committee on Conscience of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

    We are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism … Our advantage is that we might learn from their experience." –Snyder
