You’re invited to a special evening with social justice attorneys Chase Iron Eyes and Daniel Sheehan of the Lakota People's Law Project.
In spring of 2016, a movement was born at Standing Rock. When the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) was rerouted to the reservation, endangering its sacred water supply, Lakota elders asked allies to rally to their cause, symbolized by the phrase: “Mni Wiconi—Water is Life.” Hundreds of thousands of you answered their call.
Revelations of illegal paramilitary tactics employed by private security firms against Chase and other peaceful water protectors on the front lines underscore that our very democracy is at stake. This forum provides a unique opportunity to engage with two generational voices sharing first-hand accounts of this historic movement and the legal battles being waged in the Dakotas.
At this very special event, Chase will share his compelling narrative and timely perspective, and you’ll see a video presentation from Danny describing how the subjugation of indigenous peoples in the Dakotas is, in fact, an attack on our essential freedoms.
We invite you to join us for this exceptional evening. Together, let's continue to answer and advance the call to unite at this critical hour.

Please RSVP here (www.eventbrite.com/e/standing-rock-legal-update-and-urgent-call-to-action-tickets-36674057092?aff=eswgnotif&utm_source=eb_email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=email&utm_term=checkoutbtn&utm_content=EBnotification&ref=eswgnotif#tickets) today, and arrive on time with your tickets to be guaranteed admission.

Propaganda Party- Community Defense: Eclipse Edition

Propaganda Parties are events where artists and organizers gather to hang out and distribute free material (posters, prints, stickers, flyers, banners, anything), to socialize and to imagine better ways to link art and movements. Live screenprinting of slogans, images, graphics and designs reflecting political and social themes is part of the party too. The third Portland Propaganda Party will take place in the Paragon Gallery at PCC Cascade Campus, 815 North Killingsworth, from 5-9 pm on Friday August 18th.

The theme of this event is Community Defense. In the aftermath of the violence and alienation of the past several months, we want to create a context where people can consider what it means to defend communities. Tell your friends, your colleagues and your comrades to come hang out, pick up some art, and help us figure out how to use art to help movements do the work that needs to be done.

These events are put together by a group of Portland artists and organizers who work in a variety of movements, and using a variety of tactics. We have in common a belief that visual art can shift consciousness and bring people together, and we want to use that power to uplift communities and help them feel strong enough to defend themselves in the current climate.

Any questions? Contact Roger at toosphexy@gmail.com or Esther at estherpdx@gmail.com
Hosted by Portland's Resistance

On Friday August 18th Portland’s Resistance will be holding a non-violent rally and march in solidarity with the community of Charlottesville, Virginia after last week’s tragedies.

There will be speakers, collaborative banner making, and a strong showing of community. Just like Charlottesville, Portland has recently and historically faced tragedy at the hands of white supremacy. We’ve seen the destruction that it brings both here and across the country. We will not tolerate hate in our city.

We must stand against the rise of fascism and empower marginalized communities. This is Donald’s Trumps America. Is it yours? If not, join us to stand against hate. Let’s show the millions of people coming to Portland this weekend what we stand for.

NOWHERE TO HIDE: "More of a message in a bottle to the West than a documentary." Maybe the most disturbing aspect of watching “Nowhere to Hide,” Zaradasht Ahmed’s gripping portrait of a male nurse in Iraq, is accepting how empathy itself has become collateral damage. Detachment may be a survival mechanism, but for Nori Sharif, a young father of four and a dedicated medic in an emergency hospital not far from Baghdad, it’s a luxury he can’t afford. And when he’s handed a small video camera by his director and asked to film his life, the resulting diary of perseverance and suffering has a raw immediacy that’s both appropriate and involving. #KBOO #Peacenow #nomorewars #savethechildren #boycottoil #peace #Baghdad #worldpeacenow

The look is rough, the emotions always hovering near the surface. Yet, buoyed by Mr. Sharif’s cheery personality, these can sometimes be defiantly upbeat. Moments like this are few, though, as he documents the rising tide of danger and displacement that follows the 2011 withdrawal of coalition forces and the eventual arrival of the Islamic State. Throughout, his director (who was born and raised in Iraq and has been observing families in the region for years) maintains a determinedly hands-off approach. This allows Mr. Sharif’s bewilderment over what he calls “an undiagnosed war” to become the story, one that speaks specifically to the profoundly destabilizing nature of lengthy conflict.

It also honors those whose spirits appear indestructible.

“Everything is expensive in this country,” goes a lively song that plays at a wedding, “but sadness Is for free.” And the men dance.More of a message in a bottle to the West than a documentary." #KBOO #Peacenow #nomorewars #savethechildren #boycottoil #peace #Baghdad #worldpeacenow

It also permits us to honor those whose spirits appear indestructible.

“Everything is expensive in this country,” goes a lively song that plays at a wedding, “but sadness you can get for free.” And the men dance.

in Daisy Bingham. UU Animal Ministry Film Series continues with Alma. This film is a documentary about the ongoing destruction of tropical rainforests to make way for raising cattle and cattle feed. Without any narration, the poetic beauty of the lush rainforests and inhabitants are revealed as a contrast to the endless invasion to feed our demand for food and products. Beautifully shot, but alternately joyful and startling, the film captures the ecological, and even spiritual, cost of meat, dairy, and leather production in the Brazilian Amazon. Award-winning filmmaker Patrick Rouxel creates a powerful statement about the global industrial economy and the speed with which virgin forests are being cleared for timber and new grazing land.
Doors open at 11:45 a.m. Free snacks. Discussion follows.

Join our Oregon State Representatives and Senators in August for an educational panel on state government. While national legislators grab headlines, state legislators are doing the hard work of local governance.

We will lead the panel in a discussion of state government and then open it up to audience questions, so come prepared with any questions.

The last few decades have been marked by aggressive attempts to weaken if not actually destroy labor unions in order to roll back the gains that they have won for their members and the broader community. One consequence of these attacks is that families today are facing a world shaped by diminishing employment opportunities, ever more precarious working conditions, deteriorating social services and growing social divisions.

Historically, faith leaders and faith communities have played vital roles in important social movements. The same is true today. Pope Francis has called inequality “the root of social evil” and consistently defends workers against a profit-first mentality. Other faith traditions also have strong roots in justice for workers and the rights of families to just living conditions.

Why do unions matter? Why do unions and social justice matter to people of faith? What can faith leaders and faith communities do to help strengthen local labor and social justice movements?

Sponsored by Portland Jobs with Justice Faith-Labor and Portland Rising Committees.
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.

Mass incarceration and aggressive police tactics – and their impact on people of color – are feeding outrage and a consensus that something must be done. But what if we only know half the story? In Locking Up Our Own (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), Yale legal scholar James Forman Jr. weighs the tragic role that some African Americans themselves played in escalating the war on crime. As Forman shows, the first substantial cohort of black mayors, judges, and police chiefs took office around the country amid a surge in crime. Drawing on his experience as a public defender, Forman writes with compassion for individuals trapped in terrible dilemmas. The result is an original view of our justice system as well as a moving portrait of the human beings caught in its coils. Forman will be joined in conversation by Mitchell S. Jackson, Ernest J. Gaines Award-winning author of The Residue Years.

In 1883, railroad financier Henry Villard brought Portland and the Pacific Northwest their first transcontinental railroad. Earning a reputation for boldness on Wall Street, the war correspondent turned entrepreneur set out to establish Portland as a bourgeoning metropolis. To realize his vision, he hired architects McKim, Mead & White to design a massive passenger station and a first-class hotel. Despite financial panics, lost fortunes, and stalled construction, the Portland Hotel opened in 1890 and remained the social heart of the city for 60 years. While the original station was never built, Villard returned as a pivotal benefactor of Union Station, saving its iconic clock tower in the process. In Railway Palaces of Portland, Oregon (History Press), author Alexander Benjamin Craghead tells the story of this Gilded Age patron and the architecture that helped shape the city's identity.

Jane Austen might never have imagined that her 1816 novel Emma could be turned into a fresh and satirical look at ultra-rich teenagers in a Beverly Hills high school. Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash), both named after "great singers of the past that now do infomercials," are pampered upper-class girls who care less about getting good grades than wearing the right clothes and being as popular as possible. But Cher, who lives with her tough yet warm-hearted lawyer dad (Dan Hedaya) and hunky, sensitive stepbrother (Paul Rudd), also has an innate urge to help those less fortunate -- like the two introverted teachers she brings together ("negotiating" herself improved grades in the process) and new friend Tai (Brittany Murphy), who starts out a geek and ends up a Cher prodigy. Cher also possesses her own sensitive side, and she is looking for the perfect boyfriend, whom she ends up finding where she least expected.

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Jhamtse Gatsal, a community, a school, and a home for about 90 children ranging in age from toddler to adolescent. Jhamtse Gatsal lies in the district of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, India, and the children come from nearby villages. Each of these children has a background of adversity. The driving goal of Ghamtse Gatsal is to provide these children with better lives, helping them to achieve their fullest potential.

**Milenio.org invite you to a RALLY TO SAVE DACA**

We will gather at Terry Schrunk Plaza which is across the street of the Federal Building

On July 12, 2017, news broke that John Kelly, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security deflected responsibility for the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA) and Temporary Protective Status (TPS) which, combined, protect over one million people from deportation.

In a meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Kelly told Members of Congress that the fate of the DACA and TPS programs were in the hands of white nationalist Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Right wing state politicians have given the Trump Administration until September 5th to end the DACA program.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and officials from nine other states on Thursday urged the Trump administration to end a program that’s allowed hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants to work in the country without fear of being deported.

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.

Call Tamara if you need to be let in to the church building: 503 703 7058.

Portland Stands United Against Hate will be mobilizing again to confront a white nationalist gathering in our town. We intend to draw out thousands to discourage these racists and haters.

Joey Gibson’s “Patriot Prayer” is mobilizing on September 10th a “Portland Freedom March — Entire Nation” featuring Billy Sessions, a Confederate monument defender, who has been active in violent clashes with those trying to remove these symbols of slavery and racism.

The merging of the “old South” rebellion with “alt-right” white nationalism is an ominous development. Their plan is to instill fear and attack Portland’s Immigrant, Muslim, Jewish, Indigenous, Black and LGBTQ+ communities.

After the rally we will be marching to the Salmon St. Fountain. We will be collaborating with Portland's Resistance and are in communication with Rose City Antifa. We are committed to community safety and protecting marginalized communities. Ours will be a disciplined and secure event.

October Conference: Confronting the Far Right

“Patriot” rallies are not an isolated phenomenon. Rather, they represent an emboldening of the right-wing across this country, whose rhetoric and actions have been supported by an openly racist, misogynist, bigoted administration in the White House.

PSUAH plans to host a day long conference to include expert education on the white nationalist movement with extensive time for local groups and activists to integrate that learning into coherent strategies for building the Portland left as well as fighting the Right.

Stay tuned for further details.
