As Portland grows and development pops up all over the city, an important aspect of street safety is being left out of the conversation. Construction detours are increasingly prevalent, often prioritize parking and vehicle mobility over pedestrian/bike traffic and there is not a consistent policy to ensure that a safe and accessible route is available - a particularly troublesome problem for our aging communities and people with disabilities. Take a tour right in downtown Portland to see some of the conditions that we would like to see changed to ensure that we aren't backpedaling on our safety investments by covering them up for months on end and impacting our most vulnerable roadway users. Meet in the Lobby of the Sentinel. This is a rescheduled walk from the Oregon Active Transportation Summit. http://www.facebook.com/events/1571835639800581/

PLEASE READ THIS IF you plan to attend the Obama No KXL/TPP demonstration Thursday! Meet-up Location: We will try to meet at Director's Park at 9th and Yamhill at 4:30pm. At 4:45 we will walk North on 9th to SW Washington St and West on Washington to 11th. We will try to gather at the corner of SW 11th and Washington. However, this will be a dynamic situation and we do not know what will be possible-- our goal is to get on the motorcade route! The hotel is located on SW 11th between Alder & Morrison. We assume we will not be able to gather on that block. Signs: Bring your own signs if you have them. Traffic: Traffic is going to be a challenge all over -- Do not drive if you can avoid it! If you do drive, park South of Yamhill. Check our 350PDX Facebook page between 4 and 5 pm for real-time updates. President Obama will be in Portland for a fundraising event on Thursday, May 7th at the Sentinel Hotel that starts at 5pm. Let's take this opportunity to remind him that we are waiting for him to do the right thing on KXL and finally reject it. We will also be urging him to stop the TPP Fast Track madness now and instead promote fair and equitable trade that favors the people over corporate greed. Join us in front of the hotel as we greet him and the guests as they arrive http://www.facebook.com/events/831271213614817/

President Obama will be in Portland for a fundraising event on Thursday, May 7th. This is our shot to show him that Oregon stands for fair trade, and stands against Fast Tracking the Trans-Pacific Partnership through Congress. Join Oregon’s unions and our partners in the fight for fair trade at this important demonstration. http://www.facebook.com/events/1611369349100330/
