On April 29th, we mobilize! OPAL and our partners in the Oregon Just Transition Alliance are calling on Oregon's Environmental Justice communities and anyone who stands with people of color and low income people to join the movements for racial, social, and economic justice as pathways to climate action. All individuals are invited to join to show solidarity. RSVP and share the announcement on Facebook here. Grassroots organizations, nonprofits, faith communities, academic institutions, and other groups can formally endorse and support this day of action: click here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe6RbDzdq5-romjZRPYexYckrkyNE_EZhQNqNKQfvxLv0wG4Q/viewform Individuals who want details as they emerge, join the action email list. Click here: http://eepurl.com/cCfXE9 Event Details: Where: Portland, OR When: April 29th, 2017 (specific time and location to be announced soon!) What: Visible direct action led by people of color and low-income communities who are at the front lines of environmental and climate injustice. What we know: - People of color suffer the worst impacts of climate change both in the U.S. and worldwide. Communities of color and low income people are disproportionately affected by natural and manmade disaster. We are the last to leave and the first to respond to disaster. Our communities already lack basic infrastructure to support us – from adequate transportation options to affordable housing and food access. These systems will fail during climate disaster. - Housing is a climate issue. Transportation is a climate issue. Energy, education, food, and jobs are climate issues. Every sector of our economy must transition to stop climate change. - Our communities are under attack by climate denial rooted in systems of oppression. A bold, urgent, collective response is needed. - Historically-marginalized people must lead the transition to advance justice, or the outcomes will not improve conditions for those of us who are most-impacted. Nothing about us without us! - Grassroots Global Justice states, “The climate crisis is a symptom of a deeper problem: an economy based on extraction and exploitation of resources and people. This economy benefits a few at the expense of communities and the planet. ... Climate Action must be rooted in justice. The frontlines of the climate crisis are low-income people, communities of color and indigenous communities. We are the hardest hit by both climate disruption––the storms, floods and droughts––as well as by the extractive, polluting and wasteful industries causing global warming. We are also at the forefront of innovative community-led solutions that ensure a just transition off fossil fuels, and that support an economy good for both people and the planet. ... People on the frontlines of the climate crisis know what action needs to be taken, and are ready to make change happen. We need our governments and global leaders to catch up with the people on the ground.” - The Climate Justice Alliance Principles state, “Living a good life in a good way can only happen by first recognizing that the root causes of the daily economic, environmental and social inequity that plague communities worldwide are also compromising the metabolism of Mother Earth; and that all real solutions must address both the economic and ecological crisis. This recognition is what defines the Climate Justice Movement." In Solidarity With All Movements for Justice - The People's Climate Movement is also mobilizing in Washington, D.C. on April 29th, with echo actions taking place nationwide. We stand in solidarity with impacted people around the country and around the globe to demand action to stop and reverse climate change, prepare for and adapt to climate change, and strengthen community to grow our collective power. - Environmental Justice was among the Unity Principles of the Women’s March on Washington: “We believe that every person and every community in our nation has the right to clean water, clean air, and access to and enjoyment of public lands. We believe that our environment and our climate must be protected, and that our land and natural resources cannot be exploited for corporate gain or greed - especially at the risk of public safety and health.” - Environmental and Climate Justice intersect the great issues of our time. Everyone who fights for racial, social and economic justice must recognize the urgency of this moment, and that our fates are bound. https://www.facebook.com/events/1250735871647787/

Enhance your confidence, ask for what you want and be heard the first time! The three hour interactive workshop, led by Assertiveness Coach Alexis Moore Eytinge, will include exercises and discussions that will give participants a toolbox of strategies so they can stand up for themselves, follow through on their desires and hold their audiences’ attention. Women will also discuss what gets in the way of acting effectively: self-sabotage, invalidating their own feelings, and seeking other's approval. We will also touch on how values and beliefs influence actions. Alexis is an assertiveness coach in Portland, OR, helping woman who are frustrated with their relationships or lack their of, by working through the barriers and beliefs that keep them from asking for what they really want and settling for less. She coaches one-on-one and hosts workshops. She holds a degree from Portland State University in Sociology and a Life Coaching Certification from Coach Training World. Alexis is a volunteer with GirlStrength through the Portland Police Bureau, a holistic approach to self defense and violence prevention classes for girls 10-17 yrs. She also sings and teaches Dance Fitness Classes. Equality does not come easily. Our culture has to change to be more inclusive of women. Women still only make 78 cents on the dollar compared to men and currently hold only 4.6 percent of CEO positions at S&P 500 companies (Catalyst). The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology confirmed that throughout the world, men have higher self-esteem than women and the National Bureau of Economic Research reports that women are less likely than men to negotiate their salaries. Men must help make space for change, but it is up to women to strengthen themselves to bring about the improvements they want in their own lives. Don't give away your power. Claim it for yourself.

Seiya Bowen Nadachi Aleksey Kondratyev Ice Fishers May 4–28, 2017 First Thursday Opening Reception May 4, 6:00–9:00 PM Artist talk with Seiya Bowen: Thursday, May 4, 5:00 PM Artist talk with Aleksey Kondratyev: Saturday, May 6, 3:00 PM All Blue Sky events and programs are free and open to the public. “Each summer for over a decade, I returned to my childhood home in Japan. With every visit, the town faded away, slowly being replaced by a new infrastructure of bullet trains and fast-speed freeways.” In Nadachi, Seiya Bowen examines the socio-economic transformation of rural Japan by focusing his lens on the changes affecting the small town where his grandparents once lived. With increased urban development, many are abandoning Japan’s countryside for economic opportunities available in its metropolitan centers, leaving the older residents behind. Bowen’s quiet color photographs compose an intimate portrait of Nadachi alongside the striking visual evidence of the encroaching transportation systems moving people toward the larger cities. In this way, Bowen skillfully illustrates how these two worlds uncomfortably coexist within the same landscape, while also coming to terms with the personal loss of a particular way of life. Seiya Bowen is a photographer currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He graduated from the University of New Mexico with a BFA in 2014 and has since exhibited both nationally and internationally at venues such as SITE Santa Fe and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado. Bowen’s photography has been featured in Fraction Magazine, PDN and Aint-Bad Magazine, among other publications. This is his first solo exhibition of Nadachi.

Aleksey Kondratyev’s Ice Fishers is a visual study of makeshift shelters used by Kazakh fishers as they fish along the frozen Ishim River. North-Central Kazakhstan is one of the coldest populated regions on Earth, yet many fishermen use nothing more than trash bags and salvaged plastic to protect themselves from subzero temperatures and biting winds. Despite this harsh environment, Kondratyev’s photographs reveal the beauty of these improvised structures, drawing attention to the material and shape of each functional sculpture as it floats within an endless expanse of white. Aleksey Kondratyev (b.1993 in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan) works between Detroit, Michigan and Central Asia. In 2015 he completed a fellowship at Fabrica, a communication research center based in Treviso, Italy, allowing him to travel throughout Central Asia to complete his Formations series. He is also the director and co-founder of Stand Quarterly. an international contemporary art journal. This is his first solo exhibition of Ice Fishers.

"We the People Are More Powerful Than We Dare to Believe: First Steps in Dismantling Corporate Rule” Are you freaking out more than usual over these past few months about the state of our nation, and wondering whether our activism could become a LOT more effective at challenging corporate rule than it currently appears to be (and yes it certainly could!) this workshop may be for YOU. There are now more than 200 communities and counties in nine states that have successfully passed locally-enforceable Community Rights ordinances, banning a whole variety of harmful corporate activities. We could do this here too! But first we would need to build up the numbers of local people who are fluent in Community Rights strategy. There’s a very affordable sliding scale.

Contrary to the mass marketing that fills our mailboxes, original windows can be refreshed and repaired to meet today’s energy savings goals. At the same time, preserving original windows also preserves historic character and re-uses material that is inherently sustainable. This workshop covers the basics of identifying problems and repairing the wood windows in our older homes. Original wood windows are the “eyes of a building” and contribute tremendous charm and authenticity to our older homes. But after many years of openings and closings, coupled with the impacts of seasonal weather changes, our windows can develop a set of maintenance needs that must be attended to. To address these issues, the AHC welcomes back Patty Spencer, owner of Fresh Air Sash Cord Repair Inc. Patty will share her years of experience in preserving and restoring the function of original, double-hung, wood windows found in homes built in the 1940s and earlier. With a focus on improving function, this workshop will cover the basics that owners of older homes should know, including: signs of window deterioration, preventive maintenance measures, good maintenance and repair practices, plus good ideas about weatherization. Window replacement is not a cost-effective means of saving energy, and is certainly not “green.” If you love your original, double-hung windows, but just wish they worked better - they can! Come learn to do-it-yourself from a local expert.

Over the last 20 years, the Pearl has been transformed from an outdated and tired industrial area into one of Portland’s premier residential and retail districts. A century ago, the area went through a similar transformation—from a working class housing area at the edge of a marsh to the city’s premier industrial and warehousing area. Many of Portland’s best known architects of the period designed buildings for important local and national companies. Most of these buildings remain, with their exteriors intact and new uses inside.

Dr. Kenneth Hawkins will present an overview of Minor White's work as "creative photographer" for the Federal Art Project and Oregon Art Project of the U.S. Works Progress Administration. White photographed the cast-iron fronted buildings in the city's former business center as they fell to mass demolition, the city's working riverfront, and houses small and grand. Dr. Hawkins compiled the first inventory of White's original WPA negatives at the Oregon Historical Society in 1978, and in 2016 helped the Minor White Archive, Princeton University Art Museum, describe its holdings of White's Portland works. His presentation will show how White used technique and artistry to create enduring records of Portland's past, and how the series of negatives and prints in these repositories and others comprise sequences that provide insight into his career, architectural loss, and historical memory.

If you have never run or cycled in the Chehalem Mountain area in rural Washington and Yamhill Counties, you are in for a real treat. Miles of country roads (including 6 miles unpaved) wind through a breathtaking forested setting and past peaceful, scenic farmlands. As you head south from the start on McCormick Hill Road, take a deep breath ...or a few... in preparation for over 800 feet of elevation gain in the first two miles. After that enjoy the gorgeous scenery, rolling hills and many smaller (yet still challenging) climbs that give way to sweeping views of the Willamette Valley. Then, get psyched for the last big climb of the day… over 300 feet in the last half mile leading you to the delicious pancakes and bacon waiting for you at the finish line. If you want a break from more traditional road racing and are not afraid of the challenge this course offers then this race is for you. Remember, the feeling of conquering the hills is unbeatable!

When Ralph Lloyd began his 35-year long project to create an east Portland "downtown" in 1926, the site for his project, Holladay's Addition, was one of Portland's grandest neighborhoods. The remaining neighborhood, now known as Sullivan’s Gulch, was heavily impacted by the development of Lloyd Center but still retains some wonderful architecture.

The event, which attracted over 250 supporters last year, is hosted by Voz staff, board, and volunteers, and attendees come from ally organizations, church groups, and the large community of individuals supporting Voz’s work. The dinner is catered by ¿Por Que No?, with live music, incredible raffle prizes, and a short program with community speakers sharing our recent successes and current efforts working with day laborers and immigrants in the Portland community. With this year’s goal of $30,000 we hope to continue our efforts to unite and support one of the most vital groups of Portland, day laborers.

Over the last 20 years, the Pearl has been transformed from an outdated and tired industrial area into one of Portland’s premier residential and retail districts. A century ago, the area went through a similar transformation—from a working class housing area at the edge of a marsh to the city’s premier industrial and warehousing area. Many of Portland’s best known architects of the period designed buildings for important local and national companies. Most of these buildings remain, with their exteriors intact and new uses inside.

In addition to the well-known neighborhoods of Irvington, Ladd's Addition, or Laurelhurst, Portland is also home to the lesser known but architecturally rich neighborhoods of Piedmont and Walnut Park. These areas contain many fine examples of familiar styles such as Queen Anne and Arts & Crafts but also the less frequently seen forms of Byzantine, Jacobean and Prairie style. Along the way you’ll see the work of architects like Joseph Jacobberger, whose North Portland Branch Library has stood as a neighborhood landmark for more than a century.
