Tuesday, March 20, 7-9 pm: We Can Flip Congress Mailing Party with Dorothy
Sick and tired of a Republican-run Congress? 2018 is time to flip some seats! Dorothy Gasque is an amazing Berniecrat running to replace Jaime Herrera Beutler, our closest Republican Congress member, representing Washington’s Third District, just across the river. Herrera Beutler, who votes in line with Trump about 88% of the time, clearly does not represent the people. Dorothy herself is a long time BerniePDX member, a combat vet and a powerful progressive political organizer. She is uniquely qualified to win this seat with a progressive peoples’ platform, and her military background enables her to bring conservatives on board, boosting her chances in an open primary state.
We at BerniePDX can create the change we want to see by helping oust Jaime Herrera Beutler and electing a representative we can believe in, Dorothy Gasque! Let’s have a mailing party for her! Dorothy will be there herself, so if you haven’t met her, this is your chance! While we’re stuffing envelopes, she’ll be talking about her amazing platform and the things we can do to help her campaign, like canvassing and holding phone banks in Portland.
Location: Watershed, 5040 SE Milwaukie Ave.

Saturday, April 14, 10 am: Portland Metro People’s Convention
In the Portland metropolitan area, a municipalist movement is also taking shape. In 2016, a vibrant tenants rights movement galvanized voters to defeat an incumbent City Commissioner. This victory demonstrates an opportunity for grassroots forces to change Portland for the better.
Our goal is to create a Portland metro area that’s a healthy and nurturing place for everyone and every community who calls it home, and not just an enclave of the 1%. Toward that end, the Portland Metro People’s Coalition (PPC) is organizing a People’s Convention to ratify a Bill of Rights and platform for collective action.
