    A Day of Community Support and Mutual Aid

    Yet again the Patriot Prayer gang is coming to Portland to terrorize our neighbors and wreak havoc in our streets. On December 23rd, they are trying to hide their hate fueled fascist ideology behind a banner of Jesus and religiousness. Our community is made up of people that represent all kinds of different beliefs and ideologies, and we stand side by side to make sure that everyone is free to express them. Despite our community’s differing religious beliefs, we can all probably agree that if the man the bible calls Jesus were alive in these time he would be anti-fascist (and most likely a communist), and would disapprove of these alt-right nationalists using his name to promote their platform.

    Rose City Black Guard is holding a Mutual Aid Resource Share and Hot Meal for the people in our community that are most in need, in response to PP's “March for Jesus”. We are asking our community to come out and support each other in the best way we know how, by helping.

    We will be serving a hot meal and we will be collecting the following items:

    • Coats • Socks • Clothes (winter clothes are most needed) • Non-perishable food • Blankets • Toys • Camping gear • Personal care items (Toilet paper, Tampons/maxi pads, Diapers/wipes, Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Soap, Shampoo/conditioner, Deodorant, Hand warmers, etc...)

    Please show up and help our community out, and of course share, share, share! If you or your organization can help with, or would like to endorse, this event please message us through our Facebook page or on our email rosecity@protonmail.com

    We are also looking for tables, canopies, and people to help make signs/flyers for the event.

    PDX 101: Arts, Activism and History

    PDX 101 is a downtown walking tour that illustrates the origins of Portland and its journey to the present. While exploring downtown art, parks, buildings, and bridges, and important people, we cover the collective history of Portland: from pop culture to marginalized histories, including the thousands of Multnomah people native to the region and the lessons we have learned while transforming into a growing urban city. KYC's PDX101 tour stands out with our emphasis on native history, Portland’s unique style of urban planning, and influential social movements make up our past.

    Conversations and destinations on the tour include:

    • Ankeny Alley: Skidmore Fountain and Voodoo Doughnuts
    • Downtown Waterfront: the buried Harbor Drive, the Willamette superfund site and big pipe project, Mill Ends Park
    • The South Park Blocks: an incubating place for Portland’s social movements
    • The Portlandia Statue and TriMet’s Bus Mall

    March for Freedom, Solidarity and Justice

    [endorsing organizations below]

    On June 4th, Portland Stands United Against Hate, with the endorsement of 70+ community, faith, labor, and student organizations, peacefully rallied at City Hall with over 1,500 concerned residents to send a message to far right bigots, who were staging a “Trump Free Speech” rally across the street.

    Although we successfully confronted their hatred on June 4th, the same group subsequently provoked violence at Portland’s June 17 Trans Pride march and staged a violent “Freedom March” on June 30th. This is not an isolated group. Rather, they represent an emboldening of the right-wing across this country, whose rhetoric and actions have been supported by an openly racist, misogynist, bigoted administration in the White House.

    On Sunday, August 6th, these same extremists are staging a “Freedom March” on the waterfront at the Salmon Street fountain. Though they have softened their rhetoric, make no mistake, their plan is to instill fear and attack Portland’s Immigrant, Muslim, Jewish, Indigenous, Black and LGBTQ+ communities.

    We are gathering in solidarity with communities who are under attack and calling on activists and concerned residents to join a peaceful mass mobilization on the Portland waterfront, in front of the Battleship Oregon Memorial (SW Pine) on Sunday, August 6th at 1:30 pm. We must continue to show up to prove that Portland stands united and will not tolerate white nationalism in any of its guises.
