Our Constitution is misunderstood in many ways. This workshop will help you puncture some myths and develop a broader perspective on its creation – perspective that will help you also evaluate current political events more thoughtfully. The chronological and political context of the creation of the Constitution is presented with a special emphasis on the tremendous compromises that were required to form the country. Participants are also encouraged to look at structural aspects of our government for possible advocacy. The goal is a broader perspective so people can be more astute about today’s political environment. Depending on length of presentation, at the end we review the five primary levels of government which affect us, and the elected positions which manage them. Presentation, discussion, small group activity plus a short video.

Please join us on April 21st and/or the 26th for the Second Portland Renters’ Assembly at Downtown and North Portland Public Libraries. The Portland Renters’ Assembly is a gathering of people united by the burden of rent. This burden impacts renters, owners, and the houseless as well as the overall ecosystem of the city. The housing struggle in Portland, much like activism of our time at large, often operates in a state of emergency. There is a need to stand behind those facing foreclosure, eviction, renoviction, houselessness, and rents rising well beyond livability. It is time we stand in solidarity against the basic injustice underlying rent - the exploitation of the human need for housing. Come and share your experience as a renter or with rent-related issues, learn about the history of rent and tenant struggles, and share resources for moving forward together. General Assembly* w/ presentations by members of Portland Solidarity Network & former city council candidate, Nicholas Caleb There is another Portland Renters Assembly happening on April 21st, at the Central Library. You are welcome to come to one or both. On the 21st, the presenters are: General Assembly* w/ presentations by Cameron Herrington of Living Cully & members of Socialist Alternative More information about the Assembly is available at portlandrentersassembly.info
