There's no place to park your bike at the grocery store. - Your kid can't bike to school because of one dangerous road crossing. - Your neighborhood association is fighting a bike-friendly project. The problem is clear. The solution might even be obvious to you but how do you get others on board? How do you get the problem solved? The Bicycle Transportation Alliance has been advocating for better safer streets since 1990. In this free one-hour clinic, a BTA advocate will share some of the lessons we've learned about how to get your voice heard -- how to get your community's problems solved. Topics covered include messaging, defining success, power mapping, identifying allies, and pressure vs. persuasion. This month’s Advocacy Clinic will be presented by Elizabeth Quiroz, BTA’s Advocate focused on East County. Questions?

Join Know Your City, Portland African American Leadership Forum (PAALF) and artist and Project Coordinator Sharita Towne for the public premiere of short films made by local youth of color that address the topic of gentrification and changing neighborhoods in Portland. In addition to the student films, there will be work screened by other artists from Portland addressing similar themes, as well as an art show of photographs by youth from Self Enhancement, Inc., clothes by local designers, and appearances by local musicians and guest speakers. In the past decade, Portland’s communities of color have experienced a dramatic demographic shift from neighborhoods in inner northeast Portland to locations in East Portland and Gresham. This change has had negative effects, as businesses and cultural organizations have relocated, and families and neighbors have been displaced because of increased property costs and urban redevelopment. De-Gentrifying Portland is an opportunity for youth to talk about their experiences and how gentrification has affected them. Over the course of 2 nights we will see work from the following participating youth media makers: Hayley Bauske Savanna Carter Mia Charnelle Baqi Coles Llondyn Elliot Diamond Ferguson Sam Graves Jonny Sanders Meghan Skinner Donovan Smith Other artists whose work will be featured include: B-Media Collective BLVCK QUEEN (Mia Charnelle) Jodi Darby Alli DeMonico Chris Fuzzell Keyon Gaskin Zachary Gough Noah Gurevich HANiF Mikayla Hutchinson Grace Hwang Ignorant/Reflections (Donovan Smith) Sidony O'Neal Julie Perini The Resistance Alex Riedlinger Sharita Towne Spreading Rumours Patricia Vazquez The program will be screened two times: December 10th, 7pm-9pm at The Rosewood Initiative (16126 SE Stark), a nonprofit organization located in East Portland’s diverse Rosewood neighborhood. December 13th, 2pm-4pm at Sons of Haiti Lodge (3503 N. Mississippi), the last remaining African American-owned business on Mississippi Avenue. This program is made possible by grants from Regional Arts & Culture Council and Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods. http://www.facebook.com/events/1559524194259497/
