Aug 26 Sat
Forty-six years ago, in 1971, the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day.” Thanks to Congresswoman Bella Abzug who got it passed, the date was selected to commemorate the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution that granted women the right to vote. This was the culmination of a massive, peaceful civil rights movement by women that had its formal beginnings in 1848 at the world’s first women’s rights convention, in Seneca Falls, New York. Observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality.

The 350PDX Northeast Team will be showing Merchants of Doubt at their regular monthly meeting, Wednesday, August 30th. This documentary film is 1.5 hours long and shows what the fossil fuel industry learned from the tobacco industry. For decades the tobacco industry fought off regulations and sowed doubt about the link between smoking and cancer. Likewise, the fossil fuel industry has sown doubt about the link between fossil fuels and climate change. After the film, join us at Great Notions Brewery for discussion of the film or other climate topics.

If you have never been to a NE Team meeting or if you have not been able to attend one of our meetings in some time, please join us for this special showing. Our regular monthly meeting at the Leaven Center is the last Wednesday of each month

Jane Austen might never have imagined that her 1816 novel Emma could be turned into a fresh and satirical look at ultra-rich teenagers in a Beverly Hills high school. Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash), both named after "great singers of the past that now do infomercials," are pampered upper-class girls who care less about getting good grades than wearing the right clothes and being as popular as possible. But Cher, who lives with her tough yet warm-hearted lawyer dad (Dan Hedaya) and hunky, sensitive stepbrother (Paul Rudd), also has an innate urge to help those less fortunate -- like the two introverted teachers she brings together ("negotiating" herself improved grades in the process) and new friend Tai (Brittany Murphy), who starts out a geek and ends up a Cher prodigy. Cher also possesses her own sensitive side, and she is looking for the perfect boyfriend, whom she ends up finding where she least expected.

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Jhamtse Gatsal, a community, a school, and a home for about 90 children ranging in age from toddler to adolescent. Jhamtse Gatsal lies in the district of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, India, and the children come from nearby villages. Each of these children has a background of adversity. The driving goal of Ghamtse Gatsal is to provide these children with better lives, helping them to achieve their fullest potential.

** invite you to a RALLY TO SAVE DACA**

We will gather at Terry Schrunk Plaza which is across the street of the Federal Building

On July 12, 2017, news broke that John Kelly, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security deflected responsibility for the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA) and Temporary Protective Status (TPS) which, combined, protect over one million people from deportation.

In a meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Kelly told Members of Congress that the fate of the DACA and TPS programs were in the hands of white nationalist Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Right wing state politicians have given the Trump Administration until September 5th to end the DACA program.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and officials from nine other states on Thursday urged the Trump administration to end a program that’s allowed hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants to work in the country without fear of being deported.

Portland Stands United Against Hate will be mobilizing again to confront a white nationalist gathering in our town. We intend to draw out thousands to discourage these racists and haters.

Joey Gibson’s “Patriot Prayer” is mobilizing on September 10th a “Portland Freedom March — Entire Nation” featuring Billy Sessions, a Confederate monument defender, who has been active in violent clashes with those trying to remove these symbols of slavery and racism.

The merging of the “old South” rebellion with “alt-right” white nationalism is an ominous development. Their plan is to instill fear and attack Portland’s Immigrant, Muslim, Jewish, Indigenous, Black and LGBTQ+ communities.

After the rally we will be marching to the Salmon St. Fountain. We will be collaborating with Portland's Resistance and are in communication with Rose City Antifa. We are committed to community safety and protecting marginalized communities. Ours will be a disciplined and secure event.

October Conference: Confronting the Far Right

“Patriot” rallies are not an isolated phenomenon. 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.

PSUAH plans to host a day long conference to include expert education on the white nationalist movement with extensive time for local groups and activists to integrate that learning into coherent strategies for building the Portland left as well as fighting the Right.

Stay tuned for further details.

Sep 14 Thu
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.

Join us at Julia DeGraw for Portland City Council’s (Position 2) Campaign Kick-Off! It’s time to Democratize City Hall.

Business as usual at City Hall isn’t working for all of Portland. Change is happening too slowly. City Council has not done enough to keep housing affordable, help create living wage jobs, and make City Hall a transparent, accountable, community-led decision-making space. We must create a City Council that represents all Portlanders.

My campaign is about building power with the people to create real change in our community. I will draw on my experience as a community and environmental justice organizer to make this goal a reality.

Actions have to match values. That’s why I will not accept corporate contributions to my campaign. City politics works when it embraces the people’s voices over the interests of corporations.

➞ Please visit to view my platform and learn more about my candidacy!

HY AT 8 AM? WHY AT THE WASHING COUNTY COURTHOUSE? ICE has been targeting immigrant community members when they show up to their mandated court hearings at the Washington County Courthouse for the past couple of months. Most folks are going to plea out for DUI cases and/or enroll in a DUI diversion program. DUI Cases are scheduled for Mondays between 8-10 AM. Just this Monday, they apprehended 3 people and given that next week were the original dates for Operation Mega, we want to draw attention to ICE's predatory behavior at the courthouse.

Operation Mega is an operation of nationwide ICE raids that was set to target over 8,000 immigrants for detention and eventual deportation over a five day period starting on September 17, 2017. ICE now claims they have canceled the operation, but the fact is that thousands of immigrants are already deported every week anyway, and we need to come together as a community to say no more! Sanctuary Everywhere: We Will Protect Each Other!

The second of those rallies is coming up one week from today, Friday,
September 22 at 5 PM at Pioneer Courthouse Square, SW Yamill and Broadway.
From the listing:

September 23 marks 3 years since the US launched its first bombing
attacks in Syria, ostensibly against the Islamic State, but as shown by
the Trump administration, as a means to fight against the Syrian
government. After bombing a Syrian airfield in April and shooting down a
Syrian plane in June, the US is escalating this war. The US has troops on
the ground and makeshift airbases in a sovereign nation without their
consent or a UN mandate.

In the interim, the UN has expressed concern at the high civilian casualty
rate in Raqqa:
Heavy civilian casualties in Raqqa from air strikes: U.N. (Reuters 8/31)

We recognize there are many other issues at play in the US today,
including the ongoing and escalating rhetoric with North Korea, the rise
of right wing protests with attendant violence (including police
violence), immigration and environmental issues. We see these all as being
connected to the wars, not in the least that ending military spending and
investing in human needs would be one way to bring resolution to those
