Our whole human world functions on relationships, and all relationships at some time have conflicts.  Relationship and group conflicts are at the root of all the issues the climate movement is addressing, and at some time all activist groups need to work on their own inner group dynamics.

Please RSVP here.

Please join Elva and others in the 350PDX community for two evenings of conflict management skills discussion and training.  All are invited, and if we can’t fit you all in the first time, this training will be offered again.

Unite Oregon and the twenty organizations of the Portland-Metro People's Coalition are hosting a Candidates Forum! Find out where the candidates for Portland City Council Commissioner Position 2 stand on immigrant and refugee rights and the PMPC platform http://bit.ly/PMPC2020.

In November 2020 the mayor and three city commissioner positions are up for election. We have the opportunity to make Portland into a city that is a healthy and nurturing place for everyone OR we can essentially maintain the status quo: a city designed mainly for the 1%. Which one will it be? That is the question for this Candidates Forum.

Unite Oregon is defending the rights of immigrants and refugees.
The PMPC’s 2020 Platform protects renters, supports our houseless neighbors, demands police accountability, criminal justice reform, environmental justice and ending money in politics, taxes the rich for quality public services and expands what public services do.

These are big ideas, and they will only be achieved by building power from below. We are committed to working together to build that strong, coordinated, unified and strategic grassroots power. But we also need government leaders who will support and stay accountable to our grassroots movements.

Every Friday folks are assembling outside City Hall in an energetic and colorful vigil to keep the pressure on Mayor Ted Wheeler to shut down the Zenith tar sands terminal in NW Porland, and to raise awareness from people and cars passing by.
Bring signs or banners, or just bring yourself. Among the many things such a sign can say is “Fire Drill Fridays,” “Stop Zenith Energy,” “No More Bomb Trains,” “Mayor & Commissioners: Stand Strong!” 2×3 signs are big enough to be visible to walkers-by and drivers-by.
These vigils typically have strong representations from 350PDX, the Stop Zenith Energy Collaborative, the Raging Grannies, Red, Extinction Rebellion, several students from Portland Public Schools and PSU, and a 12 foot tall puppet and some excellent street theater!!

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 12-1 pm, in front of Portland City Hall. Let’s keep this growing!

Join Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group for a march and rally
    marking 17 years since the US invaded Iraq in 2003. The event will take
    place at the weekly Portland Peaceful Response Coalition Friday Rally
    on Friday, March 20, 2020 at 5:00 PM, at Pioneer Courthouse Square (SW
    Yamhill and Broadway).
 
    The US invasion and occupation was based on the knowingly false
    information presented by the George W Bush administration alleging that
    Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. After the invasion, no such
    weapons were found. Similar lies about the alleged attack on a US naval
    destroyer in the Gulf of Tonkin helped justify the Viet Nam war. The
    current President, who criticized the Iraq war, has made up similar
    lies to justify violence against Iranian nationals inside Iraq (and
    Syria)'s borders. Following the US assassination of an Iranian general
    in January, the Iraqi parliament voted to demand the US leave their
    country. Rather than respect their sovereignty, President Trump
    threatened sanctions and demanded to be paid for the US military bases
    set up in Iraq as part of this 17-year-long occupation.
 
    Regardless of whether the troops leave, the US embassy in Baghdad is
    the world's largest, despite Iraq being the 36th largest country by
    population and 58th largest in size. It is clear the US wants to stay
    in Iraq to control the oil resources not just in Iraq but in the entire
    region. It is time to end all US wars and bring the troops home!
 
    In a bipartisan vote, the House of Representatives voted 236-166 on
    January 30 to repeal the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force
    in Iraq, which was controversially created based on the WMD lies, and
    has been used to justify continued US presence. Eleven Republicans
    voted for the measure.
 
    The PPRC weekly Friday rally began shortly after the US invasion of
    Afghanistan in 2001. The protests have also focused on the well as
    other foreign and domestic policies.
 
    The event is cosponsored by Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity
    Group, Portland Peaceful Response Coalition, CODEPINK, and Veterans For
    Peace Chapter 72.
 
    A flyer for the event is available at
 
    For more information or to get involved contact the Peace and Justice
    Works Iraq Affinity Group at 503-236-3065 (voice or text), or email
    iraq@pjw.info .

Join the next Fossil Fuel Resistance Team meeting!
In order to stop the climate crisis from getting worse, we have to keep the remaining fossil fuel reserves in the ground. The Pacific Northwest is currently facing many active proposals for new fossil fuel infrastructure that if built would lock us into the fossil fuel economy and its carbon pollution for decades to come. The Fossil Fuel Resistance team seeks to stop new fossil fuel projects from being built in Portland or to service the Portland metro area, and to engage in regional fights to stop all new fossil fuel infrastructure in the PNW and beyond!
Current fights



Stop Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline (down in Southern Oregon)
Zenith Energy – Oil Trains in Portland – Alberta tar sands is being covertly exported right under our noses
Stop Kalama Methanol Refinery – if built would be largest in the world
Perennial Wind Chaser – a nice sounding name for a proposed 415-megawatt fracked gas power plant in Central Oregon

If you’re new and want to get up to speed, please let Melanie know (team co-lead, melanie.plaut@gmail.com) and she can meet you 30 minutes before the start time to explain what the team is up to.

Priming for the primary:

When it comes to making government more transparent and fair elections more accessible, nothing matters more than your vote for Oregon's Secretary of State. With Oregon about to undergo her once-every-ten-years process of drawing new congressional district lines, stakes are especially high for 2020.

All three candidates on a single stage.

No other elected official holds more influence on our voting laws than Oregon's Secretary of State. And this forum gives you a unique opportunity to hear from all three primary candidates while on the same stage. Moderated by former Oregon Secretary of State Phil Keisling, you’ll gain an in-person perspective from who’s running and why. With a Democratic primary field that includes Oregon State Senator Mark Hass, Jamie McLeod-Skinner, and Cameron Smith, it’s their chance to earn your vote. The forum will also allow plenty of time for questions from all who attend.

Let's get energized!

The forum is part of the 2020 Political Action Fair, an event hosted by a community of volunteers who support Democratic candidates and aim to energize voters for 2020. Grassroots groups include Nasty Women Get Shit Done, Indivisible Oregon, Indivisible 97201, Indivisible Hillsboro, and One Small Thing PDX. Together, we can help usher in a more just, equitable, and sustainable future in Oregon. We look forward to meeting you!

GET INFORMED, STAY ENGAGED!

Doors open at 1:40 pm, event starts at 2:00 pm.

We are committed to creating a positive and accessible experience for all attendees. Please indicate on the RSVP form if you or a member of your party requires accommodation.
