September 24, 2018 Events & Updates


Keep up the pressure, folks! If one needed motivation to keep going and pushing back against this administration, the Kavanaugh nomination is it. The nomination process has descended into utter chaos and has exposed just how corrupt and morally vacant the GOP is. We’re building a movement from the ground up to vote out as many of them as we can. What will you do this week to do your share? There are plenty of small and large actions included in this week’s update.

OSTPDX Announces Monthly Meetings for October and November

October 9, 6:45 p.m., BACK AT THE SUBUD CENTER, 3185 NE Regents Dr.
“The Rubber Hits the Road  – Get Out the Vote!” Learn what you can do to ensure a Huge Blue Wave in November. Speakers Thalia Zepatos and Amy Kessler will present about how to mobilize progressive voters and get out the vote. Zepatos will describe research on effective election strategies and how we can each be thought leaders for our network of friends, family and colleagues. Kessler will tell us about effective on-the-ground campaign work, including the work she is now doing for governor Kate Brown.  We will have a short political action to do in small groups after we hear from these great speakers.

November 13, 6:45 p.m., Subud Center, 3185 NE Regents Dr.
“Midterms Wrap Up –What We Learned, Where We Are Going, and How Do We Keep a Grassroots Movement Growing” Dr Jim Moore, political commentator on OPB and professor of Political Science at Pacific University and political commentator David Sarasohn will present their take-aways from one of the most important elections of our lifetimes.
