This event began several years ago after a young local girl could not find a police officer Halloween costume designed for girls.

Her mom took to Facebook to share how crushed her daughter was and some of our women officers began a viral social media response when they posted a photograph of themselves in uniform with a “Girl Cops are Awesome” headline. Last year we had a young girl from Bend in attendance whose dream is to be a K9 officer.

She was ecstatic to get to meet Officer Butcher and her K-9.

This event is designed to showcase the amazing talent we have within PPB and the region, as well as to help young women and girls recognize public safety as a viable career path for them.

PPB has a higher representation than other state agencies……sworn female officers comprise about 16% of our overall sworn staffing.

We are hoping to encourage the next generation of women to our great organization.

Dan Shea of Veterans for Peace Chapter 72 will talk about Venezuela, having visited that country in March 2019.

One reason organizers in the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group chose this date is that it's expected the City Council will be considering a resolution opposing US intervention in Iran on Wednesday, November 13 at 3:30 PM.

The forum is co-sponsored by Veterans For Peace Chapter 72, Portland Central America Solidarity Committee, Jewish Voice for Peace-Portland and KBOO Community Radio. It is endorsed by the Pacific Green Party.

Touring nationally for 30+ years, playing her brand of acoustic "Psychedelic-Folk-Revival" music, Joanne Rand has just released her 17th Indie CD of original songs (garnering 5-star reviews). Raised in the deep South, Rand's vocal styling is all her own: "Magical and luxuriant like the best brandy in the world." (-No Depression). Her songs, dubbed "nothing short of brilliant" by Santa Rosa Press Democrat (NY Times Publication), reflect a wide array of styles: folk, rock, jazz, Celtic, psychedelic, gospel, tribal, classical, weaving tales of the human condition. "Elegance and fierceness in the same deep breath" writes poet laureate Gary Snyder. Rand has performed alongside such greats as Bonnie Raitt, Micky Hart, John Trudell, Dougie McClean, the McGarrigle Sisters. She now lives in Arcata, CA.

Reggie Garret is the purveyor of a unique strain of urban acoustic folk music, incorporating Latin rhythms, Blues, Gospel and Celtic, resulting in a musical blend that excites and touches audiences throughout the U.S. and Canada. He has been compared to legends Richie Havens and Bill Withers by National Folk Magazine, "Dirty Linen." As a songwriter, his specialty is creating and enhancing a mood. Garrett's voice is, in itself, an utterly unique instrument. "A tremulous, warm cry from the heart." -Victory Music Review. Hailing from Seattle, WA, he has toured for over 20 years, headlining festivals, often with his band "The Snake Oil Peddlers" and has released five CDs.
