Sunday, Jan. 26, 3-6pm: Phonebank for Bernie w/ BerniePDX
Location: 2311 N Blandena St.
Join BerniePDX every Sunday, 3-6pm, to call voters and propel Bernie to victory! The first primary is just days, and Bernie needs our help to become the next president!
**Please bring a laptop or tablet and a phone.**
Since Oregon’s primary is so late, the best way for us to help Bernie is to call early primary states (like California, which has over 400 delegates and moved their primary from June to March). That’s why BerniePDX is hosting phonebanks! Making these calls is fun and doing it together is a great way to hang out with and meet like-minded people!
Training and snacks will be provided.

On Saturday, January 25 in cities across the globe, there will be protests against a new war in the Middle East.
The Trump administration is threatening war with Iran, the US is disregarding the Iraqi Parliament’s vote to expel US troops from their country, and the US continues to occupy Afghanistan and more… Oh and the US is increasing sanctions designed to kill ordinary Iranians.
People in the US need to stand up to our government and their war machine to say NO MORE WAR AND OCCUPATION! Join the newly forming Portland Anti-War Coalition in a rally and demonstration on January 25th. The only way we can beat back the drums of war is together, and it is time to get organized!

Wednesday, Jan. 29, 6-7:30pm: Zigzag Timber Sale Campaign Meeting #2
There hasn’t been any logging in the Zigzag District of Mt. Hood in almost 25 years. Salmon recovery in the Sandy River watershed has had a disproportionately large impact on populations across the Pacific NW. Fast growing, carbon-rich forests are bouncing back from a century of clear cut logging and the recreation opportunities are world-class. Is it really a good idea to bring large-scale, mature forest harvest back to Zigzag? Unfortunately, the Mt. Hood Forest Management Plan designates much of this well-loved area for commercial logging and directs the Forest Service to ‘get out the cut’. For now, the only way to stop this senseless destruction is people power.
Meet with Bark staff and volunteers to plug in to this campaign to keep large-scale, commercial logging out of Zigzag! Bark’s Associate Director will give an overview of the threat posed by this project and the process for intervention. Attendees will be able to sign up for different roles, responsibilities, and actions to take over the next few months.
Location: Bark, 351 NE 18th Ave.
