Over 800 people participated in the Jan. 31st Town Hall on the Economic
Crisis. One of the projects that people were interested in was to
present neighborhood town halls. The idea is to reach out to people who
are less likely to come downtown to events. In addition to short
presentations, on how we got into this economic mess and new ideas for
ways out, there will be time for people to share experiences and
thoughts about solutions. Break out groups will gather to discuss
practical actions around the critical issues of jobs,
foreclosures/renters’ rights, & health care.
Speakers and groups that will be tabling include, Robin Hahnel,
Economics professor at PSU, Alan Hipolito from Verde, Oregon
Tradeswomen, PCC Workforce Development, Acorn, Transit Riders’ Union,
and Fire Your Bank.
Please attend if you are interested in grassroots organizing around the
economic crisis whether you are from N/NE Portland or another
