http://cascadiaconfluence.org The Cascadia Branch of Portland invites you to kick off Earth Week with the First Annual Cascadia Bioregional Confluence. A gathering dedicated to promoting bioregional awareness, Indigenous solidarity, alternative and horizontal governance tools, and community resilience in the Pacific Northwest. Looking for / offering a rideshare? http://www.reddit.com/r/Cascadia/comments/2233cv/cascadia_confluence_rideshare_thread_4202014_to/ Want to table? Fill out this form http://cascadiaconfluence.org/tabling Statement of Intention: April 20th, 2014 at Portland State University CASCADIA RISING: A BIOREGIONAL CONFLUENCE We are rooting in place. CASCADIA is a bioregion of connected watersheds and water cycles flowing from the continental divide through temperate rainforest on the northeast edge of the Pacific rim. As humans, we share it with diverse ecosystems of other animals, plants, insects, fungi, bacteria, and all forms of life. Bioregions provide a container for what we mean by truly living sustainably on this planet, putting us in acknowledged relationship to life and life sustaining systems. Bioregionalism is a hands-on philosophy that has emerged over the past five decades to describe our work of restoration, resistance, and reinhabitation, and it can be applied everywhere with approaches tailored to each unique region. Indeed, any people that exists in a place for an extended period of time without relying on industrial resource importation from distant lands will necessarily develop bioregional awareness. The ideas behind bioregionalism are certainly not new to Indigenous communities around the world. Non-Indigenous people who are embarking on this work are asking themselves the question “what does place-based allyship look like?” Cascadia, in word and vision, evokes passion for ecology, cultures of place, restorative economies, and self governance. These heartfelt and sometimes nebulous desires mean many things to many people and create our framework for this gathering. Many people are already working on various tangible aspects of restoration, resistance, and reinhabitation.. We invite those voices to step up and share their passions. We invite members of marginalized communities to participate, to share their voices and experiences in order that they may guide more conscious and inclusive action. We strive to make this event as accessible as possible. This event is child-inclusive and safer space. We’ll do our best to support travel stipends, accommodations, and other accessibility needs. Please ask if you need support to attend. We call together this confluence of the bioregionally curious and the bioregionally conscious to meet and explore new and ancient ways of living and being. We hold our visions of a better world with a sense of humility and respect for the unknown. We welcome a diverse array of opinions that move us towards restoration, resistance, and reinhabitation. We look forward to working out contradictions and conflicts in our systems of thought and action. Most of all, we look forward to change-making and relationship building in the coming weeks, months, and years as our bioregional movement grows. See you on Sunday, April 20th near the Willamette, a little southwest of where the Willamette and Columbia rivers meet in Portland, built atop the village sites of the Multnomah, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Bands of Chinook, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla and many other Tribes who have long gathered along these river banks. http://www.facebook.com/events/1414126682168042/
