TODAY, we sometimes feel powerless in front of the various crises of our times.

TODAY, we know that answers lie in a wide mobilization of the human race. Over the course of a century, our dream of progress commonly called “the American Dream”, fundamentally changed the way we live and continues to inspire many developing countries. We are now aware of the setbacks and limits of such development policies. We urgently need to focus our efforts on changing our dreams before something irreversible happens to our planet.


TODAY, we need a new direction, objective... A new dream! The documentary Tomorrow sets out to showcase alternative and creative ways of viewing agriculture, economics, energy and education. It offers constructive solutions to act on a local level to make a difference on a global level. So far, no other documentary has gone down such an optimistic road...

TOMORROW is not just a film, it is the beginning of a movement seeking to encourage local communities around the world to change the way they live for the sake of our planet.

Tomorrow is also a book: www.chelseagreen.com/tomorrow
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.

"ALEX Exposed - The Workshop" tells the story of the American Legislative Exchange Council, founded to present corporate-favored, corporate written legislation to conservative business backed state legislators who take that legislation back to their state governments as if they had written it themselves. ALEC presented itself as a public interest gathering of legislators working for the public good while, in fact, they were writing and voting on legislation that would then get submitted in legislatures throughout the nation without disclosing the source.

This workshop was designed for people who knew enough to be alarmed, people who knew nothing, and people who understood what was happening and how serious this assault had been.

The assault continues.

After the screening, attendees will have an opportunity to submit questions to our panel:
* David Delk - President of Alliance for Democracy and advocate for election reform and an end to corporate domination, he has been a chief petitioner for statewide limits on campaign contributions, advocated for fair trade agreements in place of corporate agreements like NAFTA and TPP, and currently heads an effort to create a public bank for the City of Portland.
* Mayor Mark Gamba - Mayor of Milwaukie OR, founded a small environmental group to try and cause local change. Mark has served two years as a planning commissioner and was involved in code re-writes to make Milwaukie more sustainable. As Mayor, he works to make Milwaukie entirely equitable, delightfully livable, and completely sustainable.
* Deb Mayer - spokesperson for Parents Across America, a non-partisan grassroots organization that connects parents and activists from across the US to share ideas, work together on improving our nation's public schools. PAA is committed to bringing the voice of public school parents - and common sense - to local, state and national educational debates.

The story of Portland, Oregon, like much of history, has usually been told with a focus on male leaders. Tracy J. Prince and Zadie Schaffer’s Notable Women of Portland (Arcadia) offers a reframing of Portland's history. Many women made their mark and radically changed the Oregon frontier, including Native Americans Polly Johnson and Josette Nouette; pioneers Minerva Carter and Charlotte Terwilliger; doctors Marie Equi, Mary Priscilla Avery Sawtelle, and Bethina Owens-Adair; artists Eliza Barchus and Lily E. White; suffragists Abigail Scott Duniway, Hattie Redmond, and Eva Emery Dye; lawyer Mary Gysin Leonard; Air Force pilot Hazel Ying Lee; politicians Barbara Roberts and Margaret Carter; and authors Frances Fuller Victor, Beverly Cleary, Beatrice Morrow Cannady, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Jean Auel. These women, along with groups of women such as "Wendy the Welders," made Portland what it is today.

Immigrant wood framers have been victims of rampant wage theft and exploitation in the midst of Portland’s construction boom. Over the past five years BOLI has received 148 prevailing-wage complaints and claims worth $1.12 million in Multnomah County alone. But workers are fighting back. They are organizing and demanding a raise to $27/hr on the principle that everyone deserves equal pay for equal work.

At the hearing we will hear testimony from:

- Local construction workers about why they organizing, current treatment and exploitation by contractors, and why they believe equity policies within the construction industry are so important,
- Wage theft experts who can place the rampant exploitation in the Portland-area within a broader context, and
- Immigrant rights advocates on the importance of protect immigrant workers.

At Portland Jobs with Justice, we truly believe that an injury to one is an injury to all, and that showing up in solidarity and supporting each other’s struggles is vital to building a successful labor movement. In that spirit, we hope that you will be able to attend this important hearing!

Freimeros de madera inmigrantes han sido victimas de desenfrenados robos salariales y explotación en medio del crecimiento de la construcción en Portland. Durante los últimos cinco años BOLI ha recibido 148 reclamos de salarios prevalecientes y reclamos con un valor de $1.2 millones en el condado de Multnomah solamente. Pero los trabajadores ya están peleando. Se están organizando y están exigiendo un aumento de $27 por hora con el argumento que todos merecen salarios iguales por el mismo trabajo.

En la audiencia escucharemos testimonios de:

-Trabajadores de construcción locales acerca de por qué se están organizando, como son tratados actualmente y explotados por parte de los contratistas,
-Expertos en robo salarial los cuales pueden ubicar la explotación desenfrenada en el área de Portland con un contexto más amplio, y
-Defensores de derechos de los inmigrantes acerca de la importancia que tiene el proteger a trabajadores inmigrantes.

En Portland Trabajos con Justicia (Jobs with Justice), realmente creemos que una lesión a uno es una lesión a todos, y que mostrarse solidario y apoyarse mutuamente es vital para construir un movimiento laboral exitoso. Con ese espíritu, esperamos que usted pueda asistir a esta importante audiencia.

About JOIN: connecting the street to a home:

"JOIN exists to support the efforts of homeless individuals and families to transition out of homelessness into permanent housing. Our efforts are directed at individuals sleeping outside or in their car in the Portland Metro area. Our service provision is not dependent on age, gender, race, ethnicity, faith, culture, language, sexual identity, specific diagnosis, or identifiable issue.

JOIN is committed to preserving the dignity, humanity, and uniqueness of each person that we work with on their path back to housing stability. To achieve this, we will:

- strive to ensure that all of our programs and services are equitable in both access and outcomes regardless of a person’s race, ethnicity, faith, culture, language, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or family status,
- operate with the knowledge that certain communities are significantly over-represented among those experiencing homelessness in Portland/Multnomah County and that there are disparities in outcomes for members of those communities,
- pursue effective strategies and devote dedicated time and resources at every level of our organization to address these disparities.

These efforts are performed in service to the vision of a community where outcomes cannot be predicated based on a person’s perceived identity."

Do you ever feel guilty about privileges you have? Curious about how to leverage your own access to resources and experience in support of justice and fairness for everyone?

While talking about our privilege can be hard and even dangerous, we should not feeling guilty for unearned privilege, and instead hold on to our privileges and take responsibility to be aware of them and fight/speak up on behalf of others without such privileges and opportunities. This training will help participants to learn to do so more effectively and help them prepare for a lifelong, ever-evolving journey of allyship.

Movie Night for Life.Art.Being Integrative Arts Festival
pre-booked tickets $10 before July 25.

Learn more at www.lifeartbeing.org

We are honored to screen this newly released film, telling the story of the #NODAPL Native-led resistance against the construction of the $3.7 billion Dakota Access Pipeline under the Missouri River at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.

*Awake, A Dream From Standing Rock* is a feature-length documentary directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker and activist Josh Fox (*Gasland*, *How To Let Go Of The World And Learn To Love Everything Climate Can’t Change*), Academy Award nominated filmmaker James Spione (*Incident In New Baghdad*) and indigenous filmmaker and Digital Smoke Signals founder Myron Dewey.

From the Water Protectors at Standing Rock, we can learn a deep mode of engagement with the world. One that reminds us that we do not have to act alone as individuals, but rather, can find our strength as a collective of ecological beings in cahoots with the larger breathing world.

First, join us for the Planetary Dance movement ritual on Saturday, July 29, where we dedicate our art and our dance to benefit the waters of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. Then, widen the frame of perception to include all water, and those who protect the most vulnerable parts of our world, both human and elemental.

*Awake, A Dream from Standing Rock* will deepen and inspire our sense of stewardship, and give context to our practices throughout this year’s Life.Art.Being festival.

More details and the official trailer can be viewed on the ticket page.
Proceeds to benefit Indigenous Media Fund and Pipeline Fighers Fund.

ALL ARE WELCOME AT OUR MEETINGS! Come join us to further the human rights work of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC).

Through a combination of advocacy, education, and partnerships with grassroots organizations, UUSC promotes economic justice, advances environmental justice, defends civil liberties, and preserves the rights of people in times of humanitarian crisis.
Let’s face it. We’re all aging. With good habits, we’re likely to stay healthy and independent for a long time. But in the end, most of us will need some help. What will it look like? Who will provide it? How will it feel?

“Timely and touching…Fishel captures the day-to-day routines of domiciliary care with intimacy and compassion,…It is an indictment of the system…(and) a celebration of those who do this vital but unheralded work.”

– Daniel Palmer, The State of the Arts Review

“Raising a lot of questions, Care forces us to ponder how we are going to live out our remaining years, especially if we don’t have family who can or are willing to help us out…the bells this film set off in me make it very hard for me to talk about, this is one of the most thought provoking films at DOC NYC (this year).”

– Steve Kopian, Unseen Films

Care delves deep into the world of home elder care through the eyes of both paid caregivers and their elderly clients. The film reveals that despite long days taking care of others, care workers often struggle to feed their own families. Laurie can’t pay her rent, Vilma can’t process her green card, and Delores winds up in a women’s shelter. On the flip side, middle class Toni and Peter are going broke paying for the 24/7 care Peter needs.

Through these personal stories, Care reveals the deep humanity and poignancy of care work, as well as the challenges faced by elders, their families and their care workers. It also reveals the beginning of a movement to improve how we care—both for the growing number of older adults and for those who make their lives livable.

At a moment of great division in our country, Care highlights an issue that affects us all – urban and rural, immigrant and native born, red state and blue. Providing quality care for an aging population will require reimagining how we value and compensate care workers and how we support families who need their services.

Care raises critical questions to invite dialogue and engagement—before we hit a care crisis.

A behind-the-scenes view of Former Vice President Al Gore as he continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world to train thousands of citizen climate activists and influence international climate policy, including negotiations for renewable energy commitments during the 2016 Paris Climate Agreement.

The cameras follow Gore in moments both private and public, funny and poignant -- as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.

[endorsing organizations below]

On June 4th, Portland Stands United Against Hate, with the endorsement of 70+ community, faith, labor, and student organizations, peacefully rallied at City Hall with over 1,500 concerned residents to send a message to far right bigots, who were staging a “Trump Free Speech” rally across the street.

Although we successfully confronted their hatred on June 4th, the same group subsequently provoked violence at Portland’s June 17 Trans Pride march and staged a violent “Freedom March” on June 30th. This is not an isolated group. 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.

On Sunday, August 6th, these same extremists are staging a “Freedom March” on the waterfront at the Salmon Street fountain. Though they have softened their rhetoric, make no mistake, their plan is to instill fear and attack Portland’s Immigrant, Muslim, Jewish, Indigenous, Black and LGBTQ+ communities.

We are gathering in solidarity with communities who are under attack and calling on activists and concerned residents to join a peaceful mass mobilization on the Portland waterfront, in front of the Battleship Oregon Memorial (SW Pine) on Sunday, August 6th at 1:30 pm. We must continue to show up to prove that Portland stands united and will not tolerate white nationalism in any of its guises.

THE PEARL is the third film in our Made in Oregon summer screening series. The film was directed by Jessica Dimmock and Christopher Lamarca.

This free screening will feature a Q&A with Co-Director Christopher LaMarca via skype. We will also offer a small selection of beer and snacks.

The Pearl explores the raw emotional and physical experience of being a middle aged to senior transgender woman against the backdrop of post-industrial logging towns in the Pacific Northwest. The film leans into the struggle of those who were reared and successful as men and have reached middle age or later with a burdensome secret that they can no longer keep.

Join us for the final public meeting in Salem at the Oregon Public Utility Commission (PUC) on PGE’s Energy Plan! This is the last public meeting before the PUC makes their decision on August 31st about whether to approve or deny PGE’s energy plan (Integrated Resource Plan).  While it seems very likely that PGE is walking away from Carty 2 and Carty 3 — the fracked gas power plants at Boardman — they are still trying to squeeze in as much fracked gas as they can.

MEET UP from Portland Sierra Club office at 1821 SE Ankeny St at 8 am – available by demand only – please RSVP and note that you will participate in the meet-up.

Join us to make a statement that Oregonians – including PGE customers – want 100% clean energy. Not fracked gas.

Please wear red!

After the public meeting we will go over to La Margarita restaurant across the street to have lunch together and debrief.

Tickets: 350pdx.nationbuilder.com/tell_pge_no_fracked_gas_puc_meeting.

Spirit believes in the power of vulnerability, breath, creating intentional artistic relationships, honoring lovability, being seen/seeing, and growing compassionately through tight places to find authentic expansion. Healing affirmations, meticulous storytelling, self-love and metaphor saturate their lyrics. They use their voice and cello to seamlessly genre blend -- Blues, Soul, Folk, Classical, Reggae and other Diasporic sounds mix into an unforgettable musical landscape.

Early bird tickets are $20, or you can pay at the door for $25.

This Summer #DontShootPDX kicks off a hosted series of community focused bystander intervention conversations and direct engagement platforms. This months outreach is to Communities of Color and those of Asian Ancestory. All are welcome though these voices are the ones being centered in this space due to the specific context and necessary experience based subject matter.

There's a history of solidarity amongst the black civil rights movement honored in the Legacy of activist Grace Lee Boggs. Our history and struggles have roots in Americas culture of racism and political social terrorism. The struggles are real though our solidarity needs a renewal and revival of engagement due to the racist violence happening currently in Oregon and across the nation. Let's come together in this series which will continue every 2nd Tuesday at #ART

Each month Bystander Intervention Dialogues and community building panels will inspire and encourage innovative and direct action for those seeking outreach strategies and solutions to ending racial terror and violence. Building Community Matters!

But don’t worry! He’ll still be around. You can catch Cameron leading the Hidden History of Albina and People’s History of Portland tours, and guest starring in special events. No matter where he goes, Cameron will always be a part of our Know Your City family. Cameron has made sacrifices time and time again to ensure that these important programs were successful. Cameron has given so much to our organization, and we’re so thankful to have had him on staff.

Additionally, we are honored to welcome Lydia as our Interim Director. Already, we see that she is a capable, strategic, and passionate leader who is sure to facilitate continued success for Know Your City. We can’t wait to see what the future brings!

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.

Feminist-scholar Silvia Federici says it is “beautifully written” while illustrating “the power of the refusal of work of those capitalism has subjugated,” radical philosopher George Caffentzis believes it is an “important exploration of the revolutionary possibilities of our time.”

Come hear Kevin read from his new book!
