On Thursday, January 11, 2018, communities across Oregon and Northern California are heading to Salem to ask Governor Brown to stand up for the climate by stopping the Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline and Jordan Cove LNG export terminal. Can you join? RSVP HERE.

WHAT: Join us as Oil Change International releases a new report detailing the climate changing pollution from the Pacific Connector Pipeline and the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal.
WHEN: Thursday, January 11, 2018, at 12:00 p.m.
WHERE: Oregon State Capitol Building, 900 Court St NE., Salem, OR 97301.
Meet up with allies from around the state. Please wear RED.

Together, we stopped LNG export on the Columbia River, but our allies in Southern Oregon are continuing the struggle against Oregon’s last remaining LNG proposal—a project that would be Oregon’s largest greenhouse gas polluter. The 229-mile pipeline and fracked gas export project would threaten 400 waterways and impact tribes’ rights. And, like the Bradwood and Oregon LNG fights, this project would trample the rights of landowners through use of eminent domain, put existing jobs in fishing, tourism, and other sectors at risk, drive up energy prices, and become the largest source of climate pollution in the state of Oregon. Can you join the day of action?

Join us on January 11th for a vigil marking the 16th anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo Bay. Join us to stand in solidarity with those who are held without trial and demand that the detention center be shut down once and for all.

We will be sharing poems and letters from the prisoners to uplift their stories and voices in our continued struggle to resist and organize against state violence and mass incarceration.

From Rikers Island to Guantanamo, Prisons Have Got to Go!!

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.

We are laser focused on working for the passage of Carbon Fee and Dividend, the climate change solution economists and climate scientists alike say is the “best first-step” to preventing the worst impacts of a warming world.

We have a solid and growing chapter with 20-30 core members who are committed to our approach. We meet twice a month, on 2nd Saturdays (national conference call) and 4th Wednesdays (Social Action Night). We'd love to meet you. Come join us for a brew or some good solid action that makes a difference.

Call Tamara if you need to be let in to the church building: 503 703 7058.
By far our highest demand from tenants is seen on our Tenants’ Rights Hotline. We answer hundreds of calls a month from renters in crisis and our need for more volunteers to meet that need is ever-expanding. Hotline volunteers require a special amount of training and therefore we ask for a 6-month commitment at 4 hours per month for those willing to take on this community need.

Interested in other forms of volunteering? No worries. RSVP at our ticket link and let us know if you'd prefer one-off or shorter-term commitments.

Email to find out more.

The Internet is under attack and the City of Portland is fighting back.

We are demanding the city immediately prioritize the development of a municipal broadband network.

Comcast and other large internet service providers have successfully lobbied to repeal net neutrality, sell information about what you do online, and prevent localities from properly regulating them. Municipal broadband is the last line of defense against internet service provider abuses which threaten freedom of information, digital equality, and democracy itself.

Municipal broadband is something many cities such as Tacoma, WA and Sandy, OR already have. In Portland we have been planning to build a municipal broadband network decades, now that our internet freedoms are under attack, it’s an idea whose time has come.

Event Schedule:
2:00 pm: Gather at City Hall
2:15 pm: Speakers
2:40 pm: Letter writing
2:50 pm: March
3:15 pm: Return to city hall for more speakers
4:00 pm: Wrap up and future plans

Martin Luther King Jr. Day
In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and of the opening of our newest exhibit from the Oregon Black Pioneers, Racing to Change: Oregon’s Civil Rights Years, admission to the Oregon Historical Society museum will be FREE for the entire day!

Racing to Change illuminates the Civil Rights Movement in Oregon in the 1960s and 1970s, a time of cultural and social upheaval, conflict, and change. The era brought new militant voices into a clash with traditional organizations of power, both Black and White.

Visitors of all ages and backgrounds will engage in the examination of the repression and violence against African Americans that made the Civil Rights Movement necessary. The exhibit explores how racist attitudes, policies of exclusion, and the destruction of Black-owned neighborhoods shaped Oregon, as well as the unceasing efforts of the Black community to overcome these obstacles.

“District attorneys are the most powerful players in the criminal justice system, but most people don’t know who they are or what they do. They Report to You empowers Oregonians to improve our criminal justice system by redefining the role of district attorneys, increasing voter engagement with these important elected positions, and advocating for reforms that appropriately balance the enormous power and discretion of prosecutors.” Campaign Manager Daniel Lewkow will join us next month to introduce the ACLU’s new criminal justice reform campaign, which will focus on the power of Oregon’s district attorneys and the potential power of concerned citizens like us.

January 27th, 2018 is the first anniversary of Trump's Muslim Ban. Trump has labeled our neighbors, community members, and their relatives back home as "a threat" & treated them like "terrorists." He reduced the number of refugee arrivals from 110,000 to only 45,000 this fiscal year. We will honor individual community members who have been affected by this un-American action at this peaceful event

I urge ALL Americans to join us and show your support!

Bring your friends, families and signs!
