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.

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?

RSVP HERE: docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfBAyCKtsdrcGaahKu_5D6bTLHXQFkX471XhcIwKZsN0iS4wQ/viewform.
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!!
