Please join Chloe Eudaly and friends for a radical chorus workshop and skillshare led by Moe Bowstern, founding member of the Amalgamated Everlasting Union Chorus Local 824 and Erin Yanke of KBOO Community Radio! We'll be dusting off the old songbook, learning about how to organize a radical chorus, stay safe at protests, and take care of each other while we sing it out in the streets. Here's the plan for the day: ONE: Moe will give a brief history of the Amalgamated Everlasting Union Chorus local 824, so people have an idea of what we mean by a 'Radical Chorus' TWO: Chorus members will join Moe for an all-hands-in discussion and Q&A about affinity groups, protests and the effectiveness of fabulous outfits. Bring questions! THREE: Chorus members will teach everyone songs, in the tried and true line-by-line method, from the songbook provided at the event and we will sing together. FOUR (BEYOND): You all start radical choruses. Election night was a shock to many of us. The response was impromptu, raw, and fueled by anger, grief, and fear. As astounding as it still seems, it looks like we are in this for the long haul and we need to bring love, joy, and creativity along with us. We welcome all ages, races and ethnicities, religions, countries of origin, genders and orientations, abilities and disabilities. Donations for materials are welcome but not required.

Organizations will be present to advise on how to get involved both locally and nationally on issues such as immigration, discrimination based on race, gender, and sexuality; reproductive health, income inequality, climate change, and more. Together we can continue to demonstrate our values of tolerance, engagement and positive action. “This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.” - Toni Morrison EVENT Doors 5:30pm Program 6:30pm - 7:15pm *Speakers (more confirmed soon!): Alberto Moreno, Elizabeth Woody, Ana del Rocio Valderrama, Kevin Carroll LIVE MUSIC by Lost Lander and a SURPRISE SPECIAL GUEST!

Doors Open - 6:30pm Debate Starts - 7:00pm The City of Portland declared, and recently renewed, a housing state of emergency - but what will City Council use it for? What changes in public policy to support housing access, affordability, and stable communities can we expect to see? No-cause evictions and rent increases are at record levels. Portlanders are facing mass evictions, being forced from their homes and communities and into one of the worst and most aggressive rental markets in history, with no consideration for the impact this has the city’s most marginalized communities. Homelessness affects record numbers of Portlanders, with little relief in sight. City Hall’s approach to the housing crisis has been ineffective, lacking both the creativity and courage needed to address the worsening housing crisis. Housing is foundational to everything the City of Portland stands for, and should be a central consideration to policies around racial justice, policing, transportation, climate, government accountability,and gender equality.. Join local organizations fighting for tenant rights and housing justice, for an election-season debate, featuring candidates for Portland City Commissioner, Chloe Eudaly and Steve Novick. Join us for a candidate event where we will press for their honest thoughts about how housing intersects with other social justice causes, and their vision of how we can take local action to change housing policy in our city.

An Open Letter to the Oregonian from Portland Voters: We insist that you open your upcoming mayoral debate to all registered candidates, or We the People of Portland will ensure that your event does not take place as planned on February 29 (at least not within Portland City Limits). If you agree, please click 'interested' in or 'going' to our event and scroll down for more info on getting active. The Oregonian newspaper is holding its skewed version of a public mayoral debate at Revolution Hall on Monday, February 29 at 6pm. They have invited only their two favored candidates to participate - Ted Wheeler and Jules Bailey – while excluding many other qualified candidates. Who gave the Oregonian’s corporate management the authority to pre-determine which candidates are qualified to serve as mayor and which are not? Have their two favored candidates raised more campaign cash? Do these candidates have closer ties to the corporate elite? What makes them more qualified than the numerous uninvited candidates? This is in direct violation of our inherent rights as We the People of Portland to attend a genuine debate amongst all candidates, so that We can decide whom to support, free of any corporate interference. The Oregonian, which is owned by a large out-of-state corporation, is violating its responsibilities and duties to Portland voters. We need a mayor who will represent the interests of all of the people who live here, and only by welcoming the voices of all candidates will We have a real choice on Election Day, May 17. Therefore, we are putting out this Action Alert. HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED: * By clicking 'interested' or 'going' to this action: you agree that the Oregonian’s exclusive two-man “debate” is a violation of our rights as voters, and you support the right of Portland voters to participate in nonviolent civil disobedience to ensure a free and open debate. * To find out more about participating in the nonviolent civil disobedience action on February 29 at Revolution Hall: Email us at OpenTheDebatePDX@gmail.com * Share this declaration with everyone you know and urge them to get involved. * Contact Ted Wheeler (info@tedwheeler.com) and Jules Bailey (christine@julesbailey.com) to request that they refuse to participate unless all candidates are welcomed as equal participants. Please use civil language when contacting them. These two decent men are not the problem. * Sign a similar online petition (link is in a comment below). Thank you for your active participation! We hope to see hundreds of you on February 29 at Revolution Hall! --Paul Cienfuegos, Alex Anderson Beaulieu, Naga Nataka, and Sara Long This event has been endorsed by: Mark Lakeman (Communitecture: architecture & planning) Trudy Cooper Portland Right to the City Coalition Ethan Scarl (Alliance for Democracy) Kelly Hogan Roger David Hardesty (Minority Partner, Consult Hardesty) Lloyd Marbet KBOO Board of Directors Malcolm Chaddock (Vice President, Veterans For Peace Chapter 72) To add your name or organization, please email OpenTheDebatePDX@gmail.com. http://www.facebook.com/events/1170137339664463/
