Join the People’s Climate Movement this April 29th in Washington, D.C. and across the country to stand up for our communities and climate. Throughout the first 100 days in office, the People's Climate Movement is organizing a country-wide arc of action, culminating on April 29th in Washington DC in a powerful mobilization to unite all of our movements. To change everything, we need everyone. Find out out to get involved and sign up for updates here: http://www.peoplesclimate.org We’re ready to fight back, and we are ready to build a resistance to Trump and Congress’ attacks on our climate, our communities, and our jobs that stands alongside the unprecedented Women’s Marches and other powerful rallies that shook the globe in the hours and days following the inauguration of Donald Trump and the 115th Congress. On April 29th, we will march for our families. We will march for our air, our water, and our land. We will march for clean energy jobs and climate justice. We will march for our communities and the people we love. In 2014, we said that it takes everyone to change everything. Now, with everything at stake, everyone has a part to play. http://www.peoplesclimate.org https://www.facebook.com/events/1904314703139244/

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/

Earl Blumenauer is the U.S. Representative for Oregon's 3rd congressional district, serving since 1996. His district includes most of East Portland and cities to the east of Portland. We will use this as an opportunity to learn how our top issues — Civil Rights, Women's Health, Gender Equity, and Health Care — are playing out on the national stage. The Congressman has an hour to answer any questions we have, and we will be drawing raffle tickets so that as many people as possible have a chance to ask questions. The Congressman will be available for from 5:30 to 6:30, so please show up on time and come prepared with questions. We are limiting this event to 200 people so we can all fit in the space, so please RSVP ahead of time if you’d like to attend. Light snacks and drinks will be served. PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women. Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events. https://www.facebook.com/events/1190457751073451/

The human body has trillions of cells, but only about 1/10th of those cells are actually human. The rest are microbes that live in and on our bodies, and collectively they’re called the “human microbiome,” and we couldn’t survive without them. They make vitamins for us, help us digest food, and battle disease-causing microbes, and they may influence our behavior, particularly in what and how much we eat. However, disturbances to the gut microbiome, perhaps through antibiotic overuse, have been associated with obesity, asthma, and autism. Understanding how a body’s microbiome is unbalanced or not functioning optimally may help lead to new and unusual treatments such as use of probiotics, prebiotics, and fecal transplants. (Really.) At this Science on Tap, Dr. Lisa Sardinia, http://www.pacificu.edu/about-us/faculty/lisa-sardinia-phd-jd, associate professor of biology at Pacific University, will explain what the microbiome is, how it can get out of balance, and how we may be able to restore health by deliberately changing the kinds or numbers of microbes that share our bodies. ***EVENT DETAILS*** DATE: Tuesday, April 4, 2017 TIME: Doors at 6 p.m. event at 7 p.m. LOCATION: Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton Street, Portland, Ore. COST: $8 online advance tickets, $10* suggested cover at the door (see ticket link above). Online sales end at 4:00pm on day of show. FOOD & DRINK: Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks available. You’re welcome to bring food into the theater with you. Event Website: http://www.viaproductions.org/events/clinton_apr_4_microbes/ _________ *A note on the suggested cover: Science on Tap is supported, in part, by money collected at the door. We are committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn, so if $10 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can.

With Amara Karuna Are you wanting a deeper and more satisfying love life? Do you find issues and blocks interfering with your sexuality? This Intro is followed by a demonstration class on Saturday morning, and we will do a hands on practice session Saturday afternoon! Register soon for the intro class to save your space. Open to Healing - Allow yourself to receive healing, relaxed pleasure in a totally new way! Learn to Give - slow, nurturing, healing bodywork around the pelvis and genital areas to bring bliss to your partner Learn Your Body - study the detailed and amazing anatomy of the pelvic area, and specific acupressure points for sexual health Expand Pleasure - Move deeper into sexual potential and skills with specific massage techniques See Introductory Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ls2TH7N4xA The pelvis in a place where huge amounts of tension, emotions and toxins are stored, which block out our ability to feel aliveness and passion. This is a unique, slow and penetrating touch on the pelvic area, which most people have never experienced. It is relaxing, nurturing, healing and pleasurable all at once. This work draws from the techniques of sacred spot massage, Orgasmic Meditation, cranial sacral work, facia release, Rivers of Love bodywork, Taoist energy healing and cultivation, and deep tissue and acupressure bodywork. This is very deep work that touches into our core channel energies, and can bring up strong emotions and be very transformative. It is wonderful for healing any issues around sexuality, shame, or body image and for expanding our capacity for aliveness, pleasure, juiciness and full body orgasms. Opportunities to learn this work are rare, and usually costs for trainings are much higher, over $400 per weekend. We believe these are such important and needed skills that we keep the costs low enough to be accessible. "Taking Amara's class has enriched our erotic lives immensely. Not only has it provided extremely helpful geographic references to the pelvis, with techniques to dislodge energy blockages, it has enhanced our physical bond, and increased our capacity to experience pleasure. We highly recommend this class to anyone."

Amara Karuna has been studying alternative healing since 1978. Amara taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, a method of peer counseling, for over five years, and has been studying and practicing it since 1983. In 1989 she developed her own approach to peer counseling, called Wholistic Peer Support, integrating many ideas from RC with spiritual meditation practices, psychic healing, breathwork and body centered techniques. She has taught hundreds of people to do peer counseling, and has lead many classes and support groups in Hawaii, including groups for sexual healing, parents and leaders. She began studying Tantra and Sacred Spot work, a method of sexual healing, on Maui in 2003, and has since studied six different methods of pelvic bodywork. She has been teaching Sacred Sexual Healing Work for men and women, and leading Tantra Pujas since 2007.
