    NAACP Canvass/Door Knock for Measure 101

    Oregon’s January Special Election is only 19 days away. A YES on Measure 101 protects healthcare for vulnerable Oregonians, including seniors, people with disabilities, and 400,000 children. That’s why NAACP Portland Branch is a strong supporter.

    FOLLOW THIS LINK TO LET US KNOW YOU'RE COMING: yesforhealthcare.org/RSVP

    Everybody should be able to see a doctor or get medications when they’re sick, without fearing bankruptcy. Measure 101 makes that possible by protecting Medicaid. Measure 101 asks hospitals, insurance companies and coordinated care organizations pay a small assessment, which gets matched by the Federal government, to fund healthcare for the 1 in 4 Oregonians who rely on Oregon Health Plan for their basic care. The providers who pay the assessment all support Measure 101, along with 160+ other trusted organizations across the state, because they know that access to affordable healthcare is critical to the success of our communities.

    It’s time to get out the word about Measure 101. NAACP Portland Branch is making sure our friends and neighbors know to vote YES on Measure 101 by January 23rd. We will be volunteering to knock on doors on January 21 from 12-3pm. We hope you’ll join us!

    Portland Jobs with Justice's Scrooge of the Year Award

    Click the following link to buy tickets and votes online: https://actionnetwork.org/ticketed_events/2017-scrooge-of-the-award-party?source=direct_link&

    Every holiday season Portland Jobs with Justice comes together to celebrate our community, and to vote for the winner of the not-so-coveted annual Scrooge of the Year Award.

    This award is voted on by the community (that’s you!) and is given each year to a boss, a politician, a corporation, or some other deserving institution that has been particularly nasty in the past year.

    We here at Portland Jobs with Justice think it’s important that the voting process for this award is true to our American democratic system. That’s right – this election is for sale! You may purchase as many votes as you wish for as many different candidates as you wish to let your voice be heard in deciding the worst #badboss in town.

    Admission tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Admission tickets come with 20 free votes. Additional votes can be bought online or at the party.

    Click the following link to buy tickets and votes online: https://actionnetwork.org/ticketed_events/2017-scrooge-of-the-award-party?source=direct_link&

    In alphabetical order, the nominees for JwJ’s 2017 Scrooge of the Year Award are:

    1) AT&T Mobility, for stalling on contract bargaining and negotiating with workers in bad faith for over a year.

    2) Freedom Foundation, for pushing anti-worker legislation, and for attacking and harassing local union members.

    3) Kay Toran, CEO of Volunteers of America, for paying workers poverty wages while earning over $200k per year, and for refusing to come to the table and negotiate with the newly formed workers’ union.

    4) Mondelez-Nabisco, for outsourcing factory jobs to countries with more lenient labor laws where they can avoid union labor and increasingly exploit workers around the world for greater profits.

    5) Senator Rod Monroe, for being a landlord Democrat who took landlord lobby money and then effectively killed all renters’ rights legislation during the 2017 Oregon state legislative session.

    6) Tom Mears, Chairman of Burgerville Parent Company, The Holland Inc., for being the master of Burgerville’s year and half long anti-union campaign and retaliation against workers for organizing.

    Donald Trump and the Working Class

    Portland Democratic Socialists of America presents:

    "Donald Trump and the Working Class: How We Got Here and How to Respond"

    How on earth did this comically garish capitalist get elected President of the United States? Did he really win by gaining the support of the white working class? Did anyone really believe this gaudy fat-cat would be a voice for working Americans? What should the Left do now that he’s in office?

    Join the Portland, OR chapter of Democratic Socialists of America as we host a conversation between local and prolific journalist Arun Gupta and University of Oregon professor Joe Lowndes.

    Arun Gupta reports nationwide on politics, the economy, labor, food, immigration, the environment, and social movements on the left and right for publications including The Nation, YES Magazine, The Progressive, In These Times, the Raw Story, Telesur, the Guardian, and the Washington Post. He is a founder of the Occupied Wall Street Journal, former international news editor of The Guardian Newsweekly, and a Lannan Foundation writing fellow. He is writing a book, Bacon as a Weapon of Mass Destruction: A Junk-Food Loving Chef's Inquiry Into Taste, for The New Press.

    Joe Lowndes is an associate professor of political science at the University of Oregon, where he studies right-wing movements, populism, and racial politics. He has been active for three decades in activism in antiracist, green, and labor politics. He is a member of AFT Oregon, AAUP Oregon, and is on the executive council of local 3209, United Academics. He is the author of From the New Deal to the New Right: Race and the Southern Origins of Modern Conservatism, and co-editor of Race and American Political Development. He is currently writing a book on Right-wing populism in the US.

    Bring cash to donate $5-$10 at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

    Portland DSA Chapter Meeting

    As the newly formed Portland chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, we seek to build progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly democratic socialist presence in the region. Our chapter is made up of both long-time activists and people completely new to socialism or activism. We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships.

    The agenda is pending exec committee meeting, but in the works already were proposals from working groups, statewide conference planning, proposed bylaws changes to include working groups in exec committee, and continuing education around DSA. Final proposed agenda will be posted.

    Childcare will be provided. Please contact Ben on slack or via email at ben.chatterton@gmail.com and put "childcare request" in the subject line. Thanks!!
