Join us for Sunday Parkways in NE Portland on July 23rd! FOR MORE INFO AND TO SIGN UP: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/67623 City of Portland Sunday Parkways, presented by Kaiser Permanente, is a series of five community events that promote healthy living by opening the city's largest public space - its streets - for people to walk, bike, roll, and discover active transportation! Besides all the active outdoor fun, the events strive to foster civic pride, stimulate economic development, and represent the investments that communities, businesses and government bodies are making in Portland's vitality, livability, and diversity. Last year over 100,000 people attended the events, with 250+ volunteers making it all possible. The second event of the season is coming up in North Portland on June 25th, and we need your help to make it a success! Here's how we need your help... • Mobile Superheroes to ride the route on your bike, keeping a watchful eye on the neighborhood and backing up the Intersection Superheroes. • Intersection Superheroes to command the barricades, making sure participants are safe from cars and neighbors are happy. Each shift lasts no longer than 3.5 hours, but you may sign up for more than one! ...and here's how we show our appreciation! Every Sunday Parkways volunteer receives: • an HEATHER PURPLE Sunday Parkways volunteer t-shirt • refreshments before your shift • support before, during and after the event • a 2017 Sunday Parkways bandanna - volunteer for any three Sunday Parkways shifts across the season and it's yours! FOR MORE INFO AND TO SIGN UP: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/67623 Are you interested in helping with Sunday Parkways but July 23rd doesn't work for your schedule? Volunteer for one of the other Sunday Parkways events on: • 8/20/2017 in Outer Northeast • 9/24/2017 in Sellwood/ Milwaukie More information on these upcoming events can be found here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/58929 See you in North East Portland! Questions? Contact us! Phil Barber, Volunteer Coordinator

Everyone is welcome. We are an informal group which formed after Dr. Guy McPherson's last appearance in Portland. Dr. McPherson was the first scientist to state without reservation or obfuscation that Earth's climate is changing too rapidly for humans to stop its momentum, and, thus, we are headed for extinction soon. This could occur within 10 years and will probably involve starvation due to crop failure. We talk together about our emotions while we are living with this devastating information, Any topics related to this are welcome. We discuss new climate information and methods to perhaps adapt to these changes. We also explore how to alleviate suffering and help others. Contact: cascadialifeboat@yahoo.com

Melissa Bangs makes Portland her last weekend of performances in a nine-city West Coast Tour. She brings with her three performances of a hilarious & heart-wrenching nonfiction storytelling based on her own experience with postpartum psychosis. In September 2012, at 40 years old, Bangs gave birth to her beautiful daughter, Adelaide. One month later, profoundly sleep deprived, Bangs was admitted to the Providence Psychological Inpatient Unit. What came next was an extraordinary journey, one she has transformed into a non-fiction storytelling experience that is both wildly funny and terribly tragic. The most common bit of feedback she has heard was, “I was laughing or crying the entire time.” She has also heard, again and again, “You have to keep telling this story. You are saving lives.” And so she is. “If you are human, this story is for you.” -Melissa Bangs Website: http://www.playingmonopolywithgod.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MelaBangs/ Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, but there is a group discount if more than 10 tickets are purchased in one transaction for a savings of $3 per ticket.

The Portland Brain Tumor Walk is an event to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund critical brain tumor-specific programs to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. Hosted by the National Brain Tumor Society, the Portland Brain Tumor Walk offers individuals and teams a chance to honor and remember loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause, and helps to educate the local community on the diverse needs of the brain tumor community. All funds raised through our events allow the National Brain Tumor Society to advance research and public policy to improve the availability of new and better treatments, and fuel the discovery of a cure for brain tumors.
