Most people THINK they know all the rules that relate to bicycling in Oregon...until they attend our FREE legal clinic.

Join us for an intensive clinic concerning Oregon bicycle and pedestrian laws, insurance information, and what to do if you’re in a crash.

Ray Thomas literally wrote the book on Oregon's bike-related laws. It's called "Pedal Power" and all attendees of his 60-minute clinic receive a free copy.

Join us on the one year anniversary of the city's declaration of a housing emergency to demand a REAL response with REAL impact to our housing crisis.

The kids have just started another school year, yet no-cause evictions and enormous rent increases continue to threaten their security and educational success. And the shorter days are a reminder that winter is around the corner .... will we let our lack of tenant protections continue to add our families, our sick, and our elderly to the growing homeless population this winter?

We cannot wait for more supply. We cannot wait for the state to act. How many more of our residents are forced to choose between rent and food, financially destabilized by rent increases and forced displacement, pushed into homelessness, or further and further out of the city (only to add to the growing traffic congestion by driving back in for work) before we say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! How many more waves of gentrification do we have to powerlessly watch before we say WE WILL NOT BE MOVED!?

Together we can control the rent. But only if we do it together. WE NEED EVERYONE there to show our city that this is a problem we can ignore no longer. We won't settle for any more excuses -- but that goes for all of us too. YOU need to be there to show that renters aren't just a special interest group -- that we are Portland. And being able to have safe, stable, secure, healthy, affordable housing in the communities we built and mututally depend upon is good for everyone, good for the city, and vastly more important than an entitlement to profit.

This march is LEGALLY PERMITTED and will be SAFE and FAMILY FRIENDLY because EVERYONE NEEDS HOUSING.

Join us as we review the legislative agendas of the organizations in our community that are leading efforts to reform our justice system. Learn how these issues affect the lives of real people, and learn how you can become engaged in the reform effort.
Oregon schools suffer from chronic underfunding, and it will take engaged citizens to turn things around, contend the organizers.

"For too long our children have suffered the consequences of Oregon's inability to adequately fund our public schools," aid Robin Wisdom, Leagues of Women Voters of Oregon, one of the organizers of the event.

The event provides an overview of the current state of Oregon schools and how we got her, while offering aplatform for discussing ideas of how to solve the funding problem.

People can learn more about the project by visiting www.greatoregonschools.org.

When Two Worlds Collide

Directed by Heidi Brandenburg, Mathew Orzel
United States, 2016, 103 mins., Spanish

Brandenburg and Orzel’s stirring film takes us to the heart of a tense and controversial battle between Peruvian leaders invested in extracting natural resources from the Amazon, and indigenous activists equally determined to protect their homes and a fragile ecosystem. As the government passes legislation that enables opening the rainforests to exploitation, indigenous leader Alberto Pizango makes an impassioned stand to stop the extraction of oil, minerals, and gas that will forever change the land. Sparking one of the largest public protests in Peruvian history, Pizango is accused of inciting violence and exiled. As visions bitterly collide, environmental destruction hangs in the balance. Winner of the World Cinema documentary prize for best first feature at Sundance Film Festival.

On an average day in America, seven young people, aged 19 or under, will be shot dead. In Another Day in the Death of America (Nation), award-winning Guardian journalist Gary Younge tells the stories of the ten young lives lost on one random day – November 23, 2013. This powerful, moving work puts a human face – a child’s face – on the "collateral damage" of gun violence at a time when the gun issue is being hotly debated. This is not a book about gun control, but about what happens in a country where it does not exist – offering a searing portrait of youth and family in America today.

City of Weird: 30 Otherworldly Portland Tales (Forest Avenue), edited by Gigi Little, conjures what we fear: death, darkness, ghosts. Set in Portland, Oregon, these 30 stories blend imagination, literary writing, and pop culture into a cohesive weirdness that honors the city’s personality, its bookstores and bridges and solo volcano, as well as the tradition of sci-fi pulp magazines. Little will be joined at the event by contributors Mark Russell, Brigitte Winter, Rene Denfeld, and Dan DeWeese.
