@Friends of Occupy Portland
__Our monthly public forum meeting is held on third Wednesdays of every month at Friends of Occupy Portland, 1131 SE Oak St. Suite 12, Portland, Oregon. The meeting opens at 7 p.m. for informal socializing and networking, and the forum discussion begins at 7:30 p.m. and generally adjourns by 8:45 p.m.__ This autumn, we continue our regular forums, but with eyes open towards generating actual projects and/or public policy reports. ##October 15, 2014: Beyond Measure 88 -- Identification documents as vehicle for human rights While the Measure 88 campaign is promoted as a "safe roads initiative," much of the functions of our driver licensing system is for identification purposes. The Measure 88, when passed, would create a "driver card" which would specifically be marked as "not valid for identification." Regardless of the outcome of the ballot measure, much of the reasons why this is an important public affairs interest has to do everything with the fact that our DMVs issue IDs that can be used to positively confirm a bearer's identity. This month we will be exploring why civil liberties and human rights often depend on "papers," and how other jurisdictions are addressing the problems of "ID-challenged" population, including elderly people, survivors of domestic violence, survivors of natural or human-made disasters, and those who are experiencing homelessness, in addition to immigrants and refugees.
