Upcoming Events

Wednesday, Dec. 8, 12-1pm: Rally to Dump DeJoy, Protect the Vote

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy must go! His Ten-Year Plan is slowing the mail, raising prices, cutting and closing postal facilities, outsourcing postal work, paving the way for privatization of the US Postal Service.

We must protect vote-by-mail. We must protect the timely delivery of medicines, legal papers, and parcels. We must protect our vulnerable communities who depend on reliable postal service – seniors, veterans, rural and low-income residents, small businesses.

December 8th ends the terms of Trump-appointees Chair Ron Bloom and John Barger of the Postal Board of Governors. President Biden has nominated Derek Kan (Republican) and Dan Tangherlini (Democrat) to the PBOG. Only the PBOG can fire DeJoy. We may be at a turning point. Now it’s time to escalate the pressure to replace DeJoy and save our national treasure, the USPS.

Location: East Portland Post Office, 1020 SE 7th Ave.

Thursday, Dec. 16, 5:30pm: Measure 110 Harm Reduction Panel

In honor of December being HIV/AIDS Awareness Month, the Health Justice Recovery Alliance and Unite Oregon will host a community forum on harm reduction services covered under Measure 110. Event panelists will include a member of the Measure 110 Oversight & Accountability Council, harm reductionists from the HIV Alliance (Eugene), Benton County Health Department, and from Cascade AIDS Project (Portland). They will share about their work and why these vital services are needed.

Harm reduction focuses on keeping our community members healthy and safe, and is a crucial component of Measure 110 services. Substance use can be difficult to acknowledge, but we know it happens in all communities regardless of race, class, citizenship status, etc. Drug use is not a moral failing, but rather a health issue deserving of medical care.

Harm reduction works toward destigmatizing substance use while preventing overdose deaths and reducing negative health outcomes for people who use drugs. Measure 110 is a transformative law that creates a comprehensive system of care to meet individuals where they are in their unique journey. Join us for an in depth discussion on why harm reduction is an essential component of Measure 110.
