Town Hall to Stop Wage Theft, Share your story, help end wage theft

Wage theft is the pervasive and illegal practice of not paying workers for some or all of their work.

It happens when employers pay less than the minimum wage, don't pay overtime, force employees to work 'off the clock' or 'under the table', issue paychecks that bounce, steal tips, deny legally required meal and rest breaks, or don't pay workers at all.

The Oregon Coalition to Stop Wage Theft is fighting to keep cheaters from unfairly circumventing lawful employment practices and to provide workers with more tools to recover unpaid wages.

Come share your story or hear form Others.

GasLand, the documentary film by Josh Fox

"The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudi Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.

Sponsored by Community for Earth, 1st Unitarian Church.

To incorporate everyone is the intention.

Sustainability is an idea that will need incorporation of all parties, coming together and succeeding!

Mission Statement: The Earth Day Celebration is organized by a coalition of organizations and community members celebrating and activating environmental and social sustainability in the Portland, Oregon metro area. We encourage community service projects, citizen participation, emphasis on local economy and the restoration of a culture of cooperation. In our 12th year, we have built this event to highlight local organizations and businesses that demonstrate social and environmental sustainability in their own unique way for Portland area residents. Along with organizations & vendors at the celebration, there will be music, dance, a Kids’ Village, Health and Wellness area, Food, the Reware Upcycle Market and the T-horse.

Worker Solidarity Action Against the Korea Free Trade Agreement

Call on Senator Wyden and Congressman Blumenauer to Oppose "Race to the Bottom" Trade Pact

Join fair trade advocates, displaced workers and others outside the offices of U.S. Senator Ron Wyden and Congressman Earl Blumenauer as we say "NO WAY" to the Korea Free Trade Agreement. The pending FTA is the biggest trade deal of its type since NAFTA, and threatens to hurt working people in the United States, South Korea and beyond.

We'll deliver petitions to our Members of Congress, urging them to oppose policies that ship Oregon jobs overseas. We'll also get an update on the heroic opposition to the FTA that's taking place in South Korea. The perfect lead-up to May Day, this action will demonstrate cross-border solidarity against Washington policies that cause a "race to the bottom" in labor, environmental and human rights standards.

The demonstration is readily available via public transportation, less than a block away from the Lloyd Center MAX Stop. Come on your lunch break, and join us in saying that enough's enough! For more info, call the Oregon Fair Trade Campaign at (503) 736-9777. RSVP and spread the word via Facebook at: the Petition Now!

Columbia Riving Crossing Alternatives Discussion,

Metro Councilor Robert Liberty Convenes Panel Discussion of Alternatives to Current Columbia River Crossing Proposal
7 to 9pm, Tuesday September 14, 2010

The Columbia River Crossing project is a $2.6 to $3.6 billion proposal to widen I-5, rebuild and replace freeway interchanges and extend light rail between Vancouver and North Portland.

The Columbia River Crossing project in its current form is facing very serious financial and political challenges.
Metro Councilor Robert Liberty believes it is important to begin a community discussion of some alternatives to the current proposal, in the event it is infeasible.

Over the last several months he has solicited suggestions of alternative approaches to the problems which the current CRC is supposed to address. He has asked a panel of experts and community leaders to gather for a group discussion of the merits of these proposals.

Confirmed panelists are:
• Gary Toth, Senior Director, Transportation Initiatives with the Project for Public Spaces & former Director, Project Planning and Development, New Jersey Department of Transportation
• Mary Nolan, Oregon House Majority Leader
• Chris Girard, President/CEO of Plaid Pantry
• Keith Lawton, transportation consultant; previously Transportation Planner, Metro, Portland, Oregon 1975 - 2004.

The Mending Wall: Immigration and Human Rights in Perspective
(The is a FREE EVENT but pre-registation is required. Click here. )

What does good immigration policy look like? How do we reconcile the prerogatives of states to control immigration without infringing on the rights of immigrant and refugee communities? Can we establish immigration laws that are in line with international human rights standards and that ensure a people’s continued access to their cultural heritage?

Borrowing its title from Robert Frost’s famous poem which suggested that “good fences make good neighbors,” this panel of interdisciplinary writers and scholars delves into the controversy and complexities related to Arizona’s recent immigration law, SB 1070, including Portland City Council’s subsequent resolution condemning the law as well as the larger historical and international human rights dimensions of the issue.

Moderated by Daniel J. Tichenor (Philip H. Knight Professor of Social Science and Senior Faculty Fellow at the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics, University of Oregon) who has published extensively on immigration and national identity, and is the author of the forthcoming Faustian Bargains: The Origins and Development of America’s Illegal Immigration Dilemma (University of Michigan Press); Elizabeth Hovde, editorial columnist for The Oregonian; Juliet Stumpf (Associate Professor of Law at Lewis and Clark College) whose research focuses on the intersections between immigration law and constitutional, criminal, national security, civil rights, and employment law; and from the Netherlands, Cas Mudde (currently Nancy Schaenen Scholar at The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics and visiting associate professor at the department of political science of DePauw University) author of the forthcoming Defending Democracies: Liberal Democracies and the Extremist Challenges of the 21st Century.

This project was made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities (OH), a statewide nonprofit organization and an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, which funds OH’s grant program.

Stealing the Light, a documentary film

This inspiring documentary focuses on the story of Mohammad Khan Kharoti and his extraordinary journey to build a school in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan. With a deep love of learning Kharoti (an Afghan refugee who now works for Kaiser Permanente in Nuclear Medicine) wanted to pass on to the children of his village the same opportunity he had, to attend school and to learn to read and write. In 2001 he obtained permission from the Taliban to start classes for both boys and girls, started a non-profit organization called Green Village Schools—and eventually grew the school to 1200 students, 400 of them girls, before it was destroyed in 2008. Through interviews in Portland and with Afghans in Helmand Province, the film gives insights into the burden of illiteracy on Afghanistan and the tension of working under the constraints of two parallel governments—asking along the way the important question, “what role can education play in promoting peace in conflict-torn countries?”

Aftershock, The Next Economy and America's Future, Robert B. Reich

Aftershock (Knopf) delivers a brilliant reading of the economic crisis and how Americans should deal with its aftermath. This event presented by Powell's Books and the World Affairs Council of Oregon

A brilliant new reading of the economic crisis--and a plan for dealing with the challenge of its aftermath--by one of our most trenchant and informed experts.

When the nation's economy foundered in 2008, blame was directed almost universally at Wall Street. But Robert B. Reich suggests a different reason for the meltdown, and for a perilous road ahead. He argues that the real problem is structural: it lies in the increasing concentration of income and wealth at the top, and in a middle class that has had to go deeply into debt to maintain a decent standard of living.

Persuasively and straightforwardly, Reich reveals how precarious our situation still is. The last time in American history when wealth was so highly concentrated at the top--indeed, when the top 1 percent of the population was paid 23 percent of the nation's income--was in 1928, just before the Great Depression. Such a disparity leads to ever greater booms followed by ever deeper busts.

Robert B. Reich is professor of public policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley. He has served in three national administrations, most recently as secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton, and was an economic advisor to President Obama. His articles have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. He lives in Berkeley.

Cost: $25.00 includes signed copy of book.
