It’s a beautiful day to collect signatures for Eviction Representation For All!

The campaign was very well received at the PSU farmers market — we had a great time talking to people about the importance of expanding tenants’ rights!

Signatures are due MONDAY! If you haven’t signed yet, you can print out a sheet to sign at home by visiting https://www.eratenants.org

Join BerniePDX to collect signatures for Eviction Representation for All, because all tenants deserve representation in court! This is the final push to ensure we have enough signatures to make it onto the May ballot, so it’s all hands on deck. 

WHERE: Portland State Farmers Market, meet at the SW Park Block between Clay and Market

WHEN: 11:00am – We’ll have a short training before collecting signatures 

ABOUT ERA: Eviction Representation for All (ERA) is a Right to Counsel program designed to provide free legal representation for every tenant in eviction court in Multnomah County.

Congrats!

Congratulations to Travis Nelson, Mark Gamba, and Farrah Chaichi on winning your elections to the Oregon Legislature! We are lucky to have you representing us at the state level. 

Congratulations to Portlanders for passing Charter Reform. Beginning in 2024, we will get to elect City Councilors from our own communities! We are also thrilled that Measure 112 passed, which will amend Oregon’s constitution to remove slavery as a criminal punishment. 

BerniePDX was honored to endorse Jo Ann Hardesty for PDX City Council, Libra Forde for Clackamas County, and Jamie McLeod Skinner for Congress. Not all the ballots have been counted, and we would love to update this post to add some more winners. But if not, we hope to support these wonderful women in a future run for office.
