    LOCATION CHANGE: IPA presents: Charlie vs. Goliath - at West Linn's Robinwood Station

    LOCATION CHANGE: Robinwood Station, 3706 Cedaroak Drive, West Linn

    independents for Progressive Action, in collaboration with local progressive political organizations, is proud to present Progressive Film Series at the Lake Theater!

    Charlie vs. Goliath

    About the film: When former Catholic priest Charlie Hardy returned to Wyoming after working among the poor in Venezuela, he did not much like what he saw. There, too, was homelessness and hunger, poverty and despair. He decided to try and fix things by running for the US Senate. If he could get elected, he figured, he could really change people’s lives.

    The only trouble was that red state Wyoming had not elected a Democratic senator since 1970, and the current Republican incumbent, Mike Enzi, was supported by a huge campaign chest bolstered by corporate donations – something Hardy had rejected.

    That unequal contest, when Hardy and a handful of unpaid volunteers took on Enzi and his corporate donors, is the subject of Charlie vs Goliath, a feature-length documentary that is nominally about one man’s battle to take on the political establishment and show you can win in politics without discarding your values.

    About the film series: This monthly series focuses on films which address Social, Racial, Economic, and Environmental Justice. Films are presented on the 4th Sunday of each month (except December) at the Lake Theater. Showtime is at 6 p.m. so please arrive early and patronize our wonderful host, The Lake Theater and Cafe. Delicious food and a full bar! Following the film we will host a panel discussion and provide opportunities for audience members to get involved.

    About Now is the Time:

    We have seen enough to know that insurance based healthcare is not effective for keeping costs down and giving everyone access to necessary medical care. Advocates are totally committed to changing the healthcare system, and polls indicate that the general public supports the idea of universal healthcare. So it should be a no-brainer, right? Well, no. Some of the obstacles are obvious. Big money. Fear of government. But there seems to be something more, like a fog that keeps people from moving forward together. What is so difficult about the idea of looking after each other?

    This film intends to expose the fog, and will leave viewers examining what it means to be an American and what it takes to step into action.

    free

    Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story

    Announcing the second film in independents for Progressive Action's Progressive Film Series at the Lake Theater!

    This monthly series will focus on films which address Social, Racial, Economic, and Environmental Justice.

    Following the first screening we will host a panel discussion and provide opportunities for audience members to get involved.

    Our series will screen monthly on the fourth Sunday with a 6:00 p.m. showing, followed by a panel discussion. All screenings will be at the Lake Theater.

    About Just Eat It: Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences.

    Featuring interviews with TED lecturer, author and activist Tristram Stuart and acclaimed author Jonathan Bloom, Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.

    independents for Progressive Action's Clackamas County Circuit Court Candidate Forum - HD 38 State Rep.

    If you would like to submit a question to be considered for use at the Candidates Forum please click on this event and leave your question in the comments section.

    As State Representative, Ann Lininger prepares to vacate her seat in the Oregon Legislature for a position on the Clackamas County Circuit Court, we thank her for her service including participating in the iPA-sponsored Stand for LOve against Hate when Trump supporters descended on LO on March 4th of this year. Together we stood strong, working with other LO and Portland organizations and out-numberied the Trumpers 3 to 1!

    In preparation for finding an excellent appointee to her seat, please plan to attend iPA's People's Candidates Forum for those seeking the appointment to the office of State Representative for House District 38. This is an opportunity for HD 38 PCPs as well and concerned and interested citizens to meet the candidates. It is also a good opportunity for everyone to see how this process works and enrich our personal political education.

    The top three, four, or five candidates, as voted on by current PCPs of HD 38 which straddles both Clackamas and Multnomah counties, will be submitted to the County Commissioners of both counties for a final decision. This is our opportunity - regardless of Party status - to learn more about each candidate. Bring your friends!!

    **iPA will determine if it will endorse based on this event, so members, please plan to attend and bring your friends!
