    Film Screening: Get Out
    free

    Join us to watch the 2017 critically-acclaimed horror/comedy film "Get Out". One of our community members has been raving about it and will be co-leading the screening and discussion of the film.

    Film Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1gQ7RyvgXU

    From Rotten Tomatoes: "Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride."

    WARNING: THIS FILM IS RATED R (for violence, bloody images, and language including sexual references). Film content may be alarming and we will have a "self care" space for those needing to take a break from the movie.

    NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN.

    All are welcome to Sisters' community space. Post-film discussion led by POC-facilitator.

    Que es la Seguridad? / What is Safety?

    El transporte público es un servicio esencial para nuestras comunidades, es la manera en que la gente se mueve alrededor de la región para llegar al trabajo, la escuela, los espacios verdes, y las citas con el doctor. Hemos sido testigos de terribles tragedias en el último mes, que han causado la muerte de Terrell Johnson, Taliesin Namkai-Meche Myrddin, y Ricky mejor. La respuesta inmediata de funcionarios de TriMet ha sido aumentar la presencia de policías de tránsito armados.

    Nuestra comunidad valora y desea una mejorar la seguridad y la inclusión de nuestro sistema de transporte, esto no significa que deseamos ver un aumento de policías armados en tránsito. Así que, ¿cómo podemos definir la seguridad?

    Acompáñenos para formar nuestra visión de un sistema de transporte seguro y inclusivo, desacelerar situaciones tensas y reportar prejuicios raciales de la policía.

    Habrá alimentos y traducción, también cuidado infantil si se solicita.

    Para obtener más información, póngase en contacto con Orlando López al 503-774-4504 o orlando@opalpdx.org

    Public Transportation is an essential service for our communities, it is the manner in which people move around the region to get to work, school, green spaces, and doctor appointments. We have witnessed horrific tragedies in the last month that have caused the deaths of Terrell Johnson, Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, and Ricky Best. The immediate response of TriMet officials has been to increase the presence of armed transit police officers.

    Our community values and wishes to improve the safety and inclusiveness of our transportation system, this does not mean that we wish to see an increase in armed police officers in transit. So how do we define safety?

    Join us as we discuss our vision for a safe and inclusive transportation system, de-escalating situations, and reporting bias behaviors from transit police officers.

    Food and Translation will be provided, childcare can be provided upon request.

    For More Info please contact Orlando Lopez at 503-774-4504 or orlando@opalpdx.org
