Portland, OR, Sat. 4/24: The White Power Movement & How to Respond

Portland Anti-Racist Action hosts
The White Power Movement on the West Coast: What It Is, How We Can

Saturday, April 24, 7PM-9PM
First Unitarian Church, Buchan Building Reception (1226 SW Salmon St.)
Free educational event (donations accepted.)

In Portland, a long-time anti-racist is targeted for assassination in the
downtown area. In Vancouver, BC, an anti-fascist activist’s house is
bombed. In Los Angeles, the National Socialist Movement rallies and is
opposed by hundreds. In the Northwest, the Aryan Nations faces resistance
as it searches for a community to base its new compound.

* How are white supremacists organizing in Portland? On the West Coast
generally? Should neo-Nazis just be ignored?
* How have communities responded to white supremacist activity, and what
can we learn? Are there lessons from Portland’s own history?
* Is neo-Nazi organizing connected to anti-immigrant movements? The Tea
Party phenomenon? How?

We are hosting a panel discussion and community speak-out to address these
and other questions. Our goal is to bring people together who are
interested in this topic, provide broader context & resources, as well as
to kick-start conversations about building responses.

Please bring your ideas and enthusiasm for the efforts ahead. We look
forward to seeing you there!
