    Mental Health Care Not Policing Coalition Meeting

    Sunday, December 10th, 10am-1pm Snacks provided Childcare available upon request

    Register to attend here: https://goo.gl/ugwZBA

    Portland must put its money towards community care for mental health needs. Will you join Critical Resistance-PDX and the Mental Health Care, Not Policing! Coalition in demanding a city prioritization of quality user-led mental health services outside of the hands of law enforcement? We invite those directly impacted by policing, mental health users, and all who want to support Portland’s obligation to appropriate and community led responses. People deserve compassionate responses which best meet their needs and prioritize their well being. We know that when people have mental health needs, they deserve a mental health response.

    More background:

    Critical Resistance (CR-PDX) is developing a campaign to interrupt the use of police as mental health first re-sponders. We have seen that policing is unable to provide the professional and skilled care which is necessary for supporting the unique needs created by each individu-al’s experience with mental health. Lacking the ability to effectively respond, we have seen that policing often escalates everyday mental health needs and instances of crisis and can result in violence in our community. With police as first responders, mental health instances are often misunderstood or criminalized and can result in incarceration rather than effective support. We know that this ultimately does not safely return people to the community and creates more severe long term problems. It is crucial that Portland disrupt this pattern and put our resources in community care. CR Portland wants to impact protocol and funding of mental health crisis services and we’d like to start pull-ing together organizations and individuals who could be partners or stake holders in this campaign. This includes social service providers, mental health service users, communities targeted by the police, and other racial and economic justice organizations. We are asking people like you who have valuable knowledge and first hand experiences to get involved with this campaign.

    Will you join CR-PDX in demanding a city prioritization of quality user-led mental health services that are community-based and outside the hands of low enforcement?

    We invite those directly impacted by policing, mental health users, and all who want to decrease Portland's reliance on policing to attend. Organizations and individuals who are involved in anti-policing, mental health, or social service work in Portland, join us as partners in this effort and share your ideas at this campaign meeting!

    For those who are new, not to worry--you will have the opportunity to be brought up to speed on the work happening so far, and ways to both plug into it and to generate new work areas.

    Please let us know if you will be needing childcare or have specific dietary needs.

    SURJCC is growing! We learned alot. We have a lot to learn. We looking for white people who are committed to building the racial justice movement on this side of the bridge. SURJCC values being POC led. Black Lives Matter Vancouver, WA's founder, Cecelia Towner started SURJCC because she needed a safe place to organize. That safety is the role of SURJCC to provide, while also being careful to not do harm. This approach makes the work of SURJCC real and meaningful, not theory. It also then requires a different willingness and commitment to growth. We would love to welcome you to come to Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) Clark County's Informational Meeting

    PDX NLG Legal Observer Training

    In light of recent escalated demonstrations across the country and here in Portland, and the upcoming actions which may result in interface with the legal system, the Portland NLG chapter is offering a Legal Observer training.

    The Portland NLG's Legal Observer program is part of a comprehensive system of legal support designed to enable left-leaning people to express their political views as fully as possible without unconstitutional disruption or interference by the police and with the fewest possible consequences from the criminal legal system. In addition to providing Legal Observers, the Portland NLG Protestor Project also staffs our jail support hotline during demonstrations, and seeks to provide legal defense for protesters who are arrested, and brings civil litigation if needed. Legal workers, law students, lawyers, and organizers connected with the NLG are invited to train with two experienced LOs.

    Those who complete the training will be asked to sign an agreement with the NLG regarding standard practices and confidentiality. This agreement excludes any type of law enforcement from participation in the program, as well as those who intend to participate in any other 'legal observer' programs.

    To RSVP, please email legalobserver@lclark.edu, and tell us if you're involved/affiliated with any organizations. You will receive then be provided with the location.

    The National Lawyers Guild is the nation’s oldest and largest progressive bar association and was the first one in the U.S. to be racially integrated. Our mission is to use law for the people, uniting lawyers, law students, legal workers, jailhouse lawyers, and organizers to function as an effective force in the service of the people by valuing human rights over property interests. We work to support movements in their struggles to end systems of white supremacy, cisheteropartiarcy, colonialism, capitalism, and imperialism. We do not provide any support to those whose politics and actions seek to uphold such systems.
