It’s election time and most people focus on candidates. But we should also look at our electoral systems – how they work, who votes, and how much we are encouraged, or not, to participate in this democratic process. Electoral systems are also different among the states, creating an uneven approach. Might there be adjustments to voting rights, registration, nominating / election processes, and campaign financing that would make our electoral systems more effective for our democracy?

We are overwhelmed with messages from politicians, news sources and other media. Establish truth from fiction using critical thinking strategies, and learn where to find accurate information. This workshop uses real-life examples to show how information can be, intentionally or not, distorted. Logical fallacies, political ads, news headlines, graphs and charts, the effect of language chosen to express ideas and other types of information are examined in a “what do you see here? / what is missing?” type of format. The last part is about web searching, research databases, and other strategies for finding information – in order to be your own “factchecker”. Presented by: Donna L Cohen, MEd, MLIS, Teacher and Librarian For more information, info@civicthinker.net Part of Civics for Adults Workshop Series: To Enhance Civic Knowledge and Inspire Political Engagement

Morpheus Youth Project and KBOO, with support from Oregon Humanities, have launched a new podcast series that explores the topic of criminalization: the process by which behaviors and individuals are transformed into crime and criminals. Recently, the podcast cohort group, which includes students at MacLaren Youth Corrections Facility, met to listen to the first episode and discuss their experiences with criminalization. Executive Director of Morpheus Youth Project, Carlos Chavez, will be hosting a Public Listening Party at his office on Friday, February 29th at 6:30pm. The first episode of the podcast will be played and additional discussions will be conducted. This event is free and open to the public.

The rent is still too damn high and only getting higher. Renters can be kicked out of their homes for literally no reason at all. Profit is the law of the developers and most of the landlords. If you do not own property, you are considered a second-class citizen when it comes to housing stability. And if you do "own" your home, but are still paying off your mortgage, you are likely one job-loss, medical emergency or economic downturn away from losing it to the biggest landlords of them all: the banks. The Portland Renters Assembly is a gathering for the houseless, the "just-a-renter"s, and precarious working-class home-owners. Anyone committed to housing as a human right is welcome.There will be speakers on organizing for housing justice, a chance to tell personal stories, small- and large-group discussion about political strategy and lines of action. Snacks and child-care will be provided.
