Jan 11 Fri

January 11, 2019 marks 17 years since the opening of the US prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Local human rights, peace and justice organizations are planning a visibility action, rally and march on Friday, January 11 to mark the occasion with the message "Close Guantanamo: Still America's Shame." The action is an expanded Portland Peaceful Response Friday Rally for peace and justice, taking place from 4:30 PM* to 6:00 PM at the corner of SW Yamhill and Broadway, Pioneer Courthouse Square. Cosponsoring the event are the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group and Amnesty International Group 48.

The prison now holds just 40 people (from a height of nearly 800 at one point), and stands as a symbol of the United States' deteriorating respect for due process, human rights and the rule of law. In early 2018, President Trump reversed President Obama's policy directive that called to find a way to shut down Guantanamo. In July, 2018 the prison marked its 6000th day of operation. Local Portland groups join worldwide voices calling to Close Guantanamo Now!

For more information contact Peace and Justice Works at (503) 236-3065 (call or text) or iraq@pjw.info.

Since our inception Portland Forward has had a vision of being a hub for ideas and to engage people in local politics. Part of that vision includes hosting monthly events where Portlanders can get together to learn about important local issues and find out how to get more involved. This is why we are proud to finally launch our monthly meet-ups this January, and you're invited! 

Our first monthly event will be all about what's next for Honest Elections in Portland, Multnomah County and beyond!

Join us on Tuesday, January 29th at the community room in the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne at 6:00 PM. We'll start the agenda closer to 6:30 to give folks a chance to arrive after work, and order food and/or drink. 

Attend to learn about
  • How the Portland Honest Elections measure will be implemented
  • The status of the legal standing of limiting campaign contributions
  • The 2019 legislative opportunities
  • Other potential county ballot measures
  • The statewide ballot measure for 2020 
Most importantly you find out how to support Honest Elections moving forward! Together we can get big money out of politics here in Oregon! 

You can order food and drink from our own bartender in the community room. This event is minor friendly.
