May 14 Sat
Ying's talk will take audiences down the historical lane of the Pendleton Chinese community, including the history of the underground city, where people retreated to escape discrimination. Rediscovered after being unnoticed for many years, the story includes legal and illegal businesses that operated for over 100 years

Ying spent three decades as an educator in Portland and has served on many civic and community boards and committees related to education and Chinese communities. Learning from the past, educating the present, and informing the future is the motto that drives her passion. This event is hosted by the Multnomah County Library as part of the Oregon Historical Society's 2016 Chinese Oregon Speaker Series.

On April 12th, Precision Cast Parts sent a letter to neighbors around their Johnson Creek facility announcing a public meeting on May 25th. We just learned this meeting will be held at the Monarch Hotel near Clackamas Town Center rather than a central neighborhood venue. SPAQ members have worked to get the meeting location changed to no avail. For our transit-dependent neighbors, this is going to be a real barrier to participation as its a 45-minute bus ride to get there.

LET'S FILL THE ROOM on May 25th and let Precision know that community engagement means more than a slick new website and PR spin. Our community has real questions and deserves real answers.

Check pccstructuralscommunity.com for updates and/or email community@pccstructurals.com with your questions and concerns.

In light of the recent Mosier oil train derailment and fiery explosion, this year’s commemoration expresses concern for - and connection with - communities threatened by oil-by-rail in Oregon, Washington, and everywhere.

Who: Sponsored by Climate Action Coalition, Greenpeace NW, Colombia Riverkeeper, Sierra Club, Oregon PSR, Friends of Colombia Gorge, Stand Up to Oil

Half a century later, amid today’s cynicism and disillusionment with media, politics, and politicians, Reporting the Oregon Story: How Activists and Visionaries Transformed a State (Oregon State University) serves as a reminder that charged politics and bitter rivalries can also come hand-in-hand with lasting social progress.
