We will have a few speakers and fanfare before we head inside to pack the council chambers as members of Move To Amend testify before the City Council in favor of a resolution which explicitly supports a constitutional amendment making clear that corporations are not people and money is not speech.

Wear red and bring signs (signs brought into council chambers can be no larger than 8 1/2 x 11) See you there!
Rally/Hearing details
  • 8-8:30 - Gather at City Hall

Raphael House of Portland is a multi-faceted domestic violence agency dedicated to ending intimate partner violence for good.

They serve individuals and families of all backgrounds, cultures, ages, and sexual orientations. The current state of the economy means that costs for providing food and clothing to the survivors and their children living in shelter have risen dramatically. This is a great chance to donate 1 pair of pants to help a worthy cause. Please bring 1 pair of clean pants to the No Pants party.

Monday

Make Civilian Oversight Part of Portland's Charter!

[improve]

Occupy Portland in City Hall, 8 Dec 2011
  • Date: Monday, January 9, 2012
  • Time: 6PM - 8PM
  • Location: Rose Room, 3rd Floor, Portland City Hall 1221 SW 4th Avenue
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Change Portland's Charter so The People have meaningful oversight over police conduct.

What are your ideas? Two ideas are gaining traction:

  • The CRC should be provided legal representation other than the City Attorney, who has a responsibility to prevent the city from exposure to lawsuits: this duty conflicts with uncovering misconduct.
  • Eliminate police horses. Perhaps we could get animal rights people to join those of us who were pushed about by these workhorses and into tear-gassers barricading the street. If the city was concerned by infestations in the Occupy Portland camp, then they will be incensed to learn about the rats down by the horse barn!

Bring words you think should go into the City Charter. Bring your friends. Bring us change!

We need to demand structured change. Once we get this document amended, we can begin work on the U.S. Constitution!

For more information, contact Portland Copwatch.

You can also testify by email or by phone at the link below.

Dharma Circle

[improve]

  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Dharma Circles invite us to rest in the ease of the present moment.

Frosty leaves as non-dual teachings from the world’s wisdom traditions open into the spacious field of the heart. Reflection, silent sitting, and silent movement soften our boundaries and open awareness of our essential nature, nearer to us than our own breath.

All contemplative practices and levels of experience (or no experience) are welcome.

The door is open at 6:45. At 7:00 pm we begin with dialogue and dharma reflection, followed by an hour of silent practice.

Feel free to bring cushions, mats, or whatever is comfortable for your sitting practice (some cushions and chairs are provided).

Grounded in the heart, our actions grow from deep soil to yield fruits that enhance peace, justice, beauty, and balance in all that we do.

In a tumultuous world, maintaining a spacious heart requires attention, intention, and ever-deepening love.

Sangha or satsang is created anytime we are present with others for reflection or practice in the space of the heart, in service of truth. Sharing that intention, our dialogues invite us into reflection on our deepest Being, Mystery, Emptiness, the Beloved.

Every faith or no faith are equally welcome here.

We embrace human nature just as it is, holy and broken, perfect and imperfect at the same time, and steep together in the timeless present moment, where definitions slip away.

Gathering in satsang, sangha, or a community of practice provides a rich common ground as we travel in the terrain of the Heart.

$5-$10 suggested donation (All are welcome)
