Due to renovation of Colonel Summers Park, the festival will be at a new location this year, at Creston Park on Powell Blvd. Expressing gratitude for the many gifts immigrants have brought to our American society, this 14th Annual Buddhist Festival in the Park has a focus on immigrants and the Buddhism they have brought to our shores. How may we reduce suffering and reduce reactivity? Buddhism teaches non-attachment and non-judgment. It provides skills which help foster equanimity and clarity. It’s teachings emphasize gratitude and generosity. Many Buddhist practitioners have felt the need to increase their civic engagement thanks to the current political climate. How can a Buddhist maintain an open heart and resist harmful policies of the state? Organizers of the festival felt it is important to give people the tools they are looking for, so we are offering more workshops this year. We emphasize our gratitude for the gifts of the Buddhist Triple Gems: the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. The Buddha is our teacher. Many Buddhas have brought the Dharma, or the teachings, from one land to another. Without these emigrants, we would not have the Buddhism we have today throughout the world. Nor would we have these teachings without Sangha, or the communities which share the religious practices and embody the teachings. Participating groups will have booths through the day from 11 am to 4:30 pm. From noon to 1:45 pm workshops will be offered on beginning a meditation practice and on chanting as practice. An extended workshop will also be offered on the Engaged Buddhist practice of nonviolent direct action. Another workshop is intended to offer a brief introduction to the main shared teachings of Buddhism. As usual there will be a Dharma Talk and a Discussion Panel on the theme. At 4:00, BPF Portland will host a drawing for prizes related to Buddhism. All festival attendees are eligible for one free ticket. While the Dharma talk and panel discussion occur in the festival’s main canopy, the children's canopy will be busy with story times, crafts, and other activities. Many different Portland area communities will be represented at the booths. Pure Land, Zen, Vajrayana, Vipassana, and non-sectarian groups will share news and information about their communities. This is a perfect opportunity for those curious about Buddhism to explore the possibilities available. The festival is free, and all are welcome. Organizers ask for mindfulness regarding waste: please avoid single use water bottles and do sort recyclables.

On June 14th, we will come together for Voz’s 2017 Annual Dinner celebrating the lives of the diverse day laborers and immigrants who find employment through the MLK Jr. Workers Center and raising our voice in opposition to the many threats facing our community at this time. 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.

Sunday, June 25th - North Portland Come out to celebrate Sunday Parkways 10th Anniversary! The North Portland Sunday Parkways will occur on June 25th. It opens from 11 am - 4 pm and provides 8 miles of free family friendly fun. We need you to make it a success! 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 at each event making it all possible. 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. • We also need Mobile Mechanics, Mobile Medics and Event Photographers. Each shift lasts no longer than 3.5 hours, but you may sign up for more than one! Sign up here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2017-sunday-parkways-north-portland-volunteer-june-25th-registration-34154770839 ...and here's how we show our appreciation! Every Sunday Parkways volunteer receives: • a 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/67621 Are you interested in helping with Sunday Parkways but June 25th doesn't work for your schedule? Volunteer for one of the other Sunday Parkways events on: • 7/23/2017 in Northeast Portland • 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 Portland!
