Strike Debt Portland invites students, debtors, teachers, artists, staff, professors, the public and allies to join us for a student Debtors’ Assembly at 2-4PM on Thursday May 28, 2015 at the Portland State University Park Blocks. A Debtors' Assembly is a public forum to talk about debt, to dispel stigmas, myths and taboos about debt, to learn about debt, and to organize ourselves to change the state of debt in our lives. We'll have various short presentations from organizers, academics, debtors, artists and musicians, and there will be opportunities for anyone to share openly about their debt and how it affects their lives.
