Community Rights PDX: how this form of activism allows us to reclaim our power -- free workshops
Community Rights-Based Activism Comes to Portland

 Community Rights-Based Activism comes to Portland. Some 150 communities in 6 east coast states have passed local ordinances that strip corporations of their so-called "rights," banning corporate factory farming, fracking, water extraction for bottling, and more. West Coast communities are beginning to use this method, and here in Portland, Community Rights PDX (CR-pdx) is offering free workshops to teach us how.  Host Stephanie Potter welcomes Kenneth Jones and Susan Rankin, two workshop leaders with CR-pdx.

Diplomas Denied: Continuing the conversation about Portland's drop out crisis

More than 1,100 students drop out of Portland Public Schools every year. Many who fail to receive a diploma have been allowed to transfer into the district's alternative schools where graduation rates are extremely low or directed into going after a less-valued GED certificate. The Portland Public School District appears unable to reverse this trend or, more significantly, track students at-risk of dropping out. With so many solutions being offered, why hasn't the situation improved?

Earthquakes in Portland? Since when?!

Portland Prepared

The Pacific Northwest has long been an area stricken by earthquakes and tectonic forces.  The problem is... no one thought to Google that information as they were building cities along the entire West coast, 200 years ago.  Then earthquakes started to level the cities of California in the 1800's and, in the early 1950's, Portland learned that we were also in the same boat.

It's no longer a case of 'if' it will happen, but 'when' and now that we know that, what we choose to do about our own personal preparedness can determine how well we will fare in the days after the next 'event of note'.

Jackpot or Bust? The move to build Oregon's first private casino

Jackpot or bust? The move to build Oregon's first private casino.

On Nov. 6, Oregon voters must decide whether to amend Oregon's constitution and state law to allow the construction of a private casino on the site of the defunct Multnomah Kennel Club. Measure 82 would amend the constitution to permit private casinos, while Measure 83 would set up the approval process. The businessmen and financial backers - which include Canadian gaming giant Clairvest - say the casino would create 2,000 new jobs and generate $100 million annually for Oregon schools and other public services. Opponents say the project is a loser. Native American tribes say the casino would hurt their own gaming operations, an important source of revenue for tribal social services.
