Portland DSA is taking our Tax the Rich campaign to the state Capitol! Governor Kate Brown is calling a special session to cut taxes to businesses. Join us to protest this anti-working-class tax cut on Monday, May 21st. 

As reported in The Oregonian (http://www.oregonlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2018/05/kate_browns_tax_plan_would_mos.html) this tax plan will mostly benefit high-income individuals making well over $200,000 a year. It would force working-class Oregonians to pay higher tax rates than their wealthy bosses. And it would take away critical revenue needed to fund schools, affordable housing and other vital services. 

So join us for a rally on the Capitol steps in Salem from noon to 1 p.m. to tell our state officials loud and clear that the days of neo-liberal austerity and welfare for the wealthy are over. We demand they fund and support the working class! It's time to TAX THE RICH!!

More details to come!!

Also, we will be organizeing carpools and transportation, so please RSVP for that by filling out this form: tinyurl.com/taxtherichcarpool

For the past 25 years, Michael Pollan, author of five New York Times bestsellers (including The Botany of Desire and The Omnivore’s Dilemma ), has been writing about the places where nature and culture intersect: on our plates, in our farms and gardens, and, now, in the plants and fungi humans use to alter consciousness. Pollan’s unique and elegant blend of science, history, travel writing, and first person reportage has inspired millions of readers to look at familiar experiences in a whole new light while sparking vital national conversations about our relationship to the natural world. How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence (Penguin Press) is Pollan’s brilliant and brave investigation into psychedelic drugs and what they reveal about the human mind, the self, and our connection to the natural world and each other. A deeply personal exploration of human consciousness, Pollan’s “mental travelogue” is not just about psychedelic drugs, but also how, in a world that offers us both struggle and beauty, we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives.

Please note: Tickets for this event, $38, include admission and a copy of How to Change Your Mind, and are available online at Portland5.com, at the Portland’5 box office, by phone at 800-273-1530, and at all TicketsWest outlets. Books will be distributed at the event.

We are laser focused on working for the passage of Carbon Fee and Dividend, the climate change solution economists and climate scientists alike say is the “best first-step” to preventing the worst impacts of a warming world.

We have a solid and growing chapter with 20-30 core members who are committed to our approach. We meet twice a month, on 2nd Saturdays (national conference call) and 4th Wednesdays (Social Action Night). We'd love to meet you. Come join us for a brew or some good solid action that makes a difference.

The "Great Recession" financial crisis of 2007/8 brought forth the need for Americans to examine the financial institutions which came to negatively impact Americans, increasing the inequities of American society as well as the divide based on race. That examination begun with a critical look at the role of the too-big-to-fail banks and a desire to develop financial institutions which support the needs for local financing of local needs, separated from the profit seeking activities of the too-big-too-fail banks.

Thus a movement to form public banks was reborn. The movement today focuses on the formation of municipal banks. Movement grows coast to coast with active efforts from Seattle, San Francisco, and Santa Fe and going east to Washington DC and Philadelphia. And now the effort starts in Portland.
