    Save Rockwood from the Rockwood Rising project!

    Are you a renter in Rockwood? Do you know how the Rockwood Rising Project could affect you?

    We are concerned about who the Rockwood Rising project is designed to benefit, and how the project will affect the broader Rockwood community.

    How much upward pressure will this project put on an already strained rental housing market? How does the city of Gresham plan to address rising housing costs and avoid causing mass displacement?

    The Gresham city council plans to move forward with this project despite not having answers to these fundamental questions. Fencing has already gone up around Plaza del Sol, the proposed construction site. We need your help to ACT NOW!

    Please join us for an event to SAVE ROCKWOOD from 2-5pm on October 15, at 184th Ave/SE Pine St. The purpose of this event is to inform the community about the Rockwood Rising project, gather written and oral testimony from local renters, and encourage folks to attend and speak out at the next Gresham City Council and Redevelopment Commission meetings on October 17 at 3pm.

    Please help us get the word out about this event!

    Rally in Solidarity For Charlottesville, VA!

    It's OUR turn Gresham: To stand in solidarity with the Charlottesville, VA community that experienced a series of attacks against the people of Charlottesville and many Anti-Racist organizations that opposed the Alt-Right coming into their city. Many people were seriously injured from attacks carried out by White Nationalists. On the 2nd day of the counter-protests after the first day was met with sheer violence provoked by the Alt-Right. When counter-protesters were marching a Dodge car barrles down at 80MPH mowing down dozens of people marching and confirmed somebody had died from the result of that incident. Many others were left bleeding in the streets and some had concussions. The driver was confirmed to be a known Neo-Nazi.

    This is all too familiar sounding; Gresham has experienced an attack by the 188th Ave 7/11 store last year on the same month. Larnell Bruce was killed by a Neo-Nazi couple from the European Kindred prison-gang. He was run over in the 7/11 parking-lot and died as the result of his injuries. White Nationalists are now more empowered than ever to go around injuring and killing people that oppose their sick and inhumane ideology. We are seeing more and more violent attacks against people who want to defend their communities from White Nationalists that are organizing to terrorize our community and kill us.

    Let's show the people of Charlottesville some love and that we are standing in solidarity with them while sending a message to Fascists that they are not welcome in our communities. We will remember Larnell Bruce & Heather who were both run over by Neo-Nazis and died because of it. If we do not actively take action and oppose white nationalists we are leaving our community vulnerable to being harmed by people that want all of us dead. It's important that we come together and protect one & another!

    • We will rally at Plaza Del Sol in Gresham, OR off of 187th Ave & SE Stark St. Just a block away from when Larnell Bruce was murdered. After the rally then we'll march afterwards! Cover your face.. It's highly recommended to protect your identity from Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and Fascists. Perferably, wear all black too! Mourn the dead -- but also fight like hell for the living!

    • Note: We may.. have a couple speakers, but we will update the event page for these details as we figure it out. Don't forget to bring signs, chalk, and flags!
