announcements - "what can we do?"

To be aware of all the problems facing the world can be empowering and liberating. Yet at times, this awareness seems a burden because with so many issues it can be difficult to know where to put one's energy. This page is meant to be a resource for all of us who want to know "what we can do", or "where can we help", or "how can I become more involved". Whether you want to attend a benefit or other event to become more educated or entertained, learn more about upcoming marches, demonstrations, or other actions, find reasons and ways to contact a government or corporate representative, join a collective which shares your interests, go to a local meeting for an organization, help out other members of the community, or to simply look for inspiration for your own ideas we hope that we will all be able to find that information here.

HANDS OFF VENEZUELA! ** Portland Rally Friday 2/8/19 Terry Shrunk Plaza 5PM

From the open publishing newswire: Join your community members at Terry Schrunk Plaza Portland this Friday at 5:00 pm to tell the US government HANDS OFF VENEZUELA!

With Donald Trump in the White House, these efforts have escalated to threats of all-out military violence, the plundering of billions of dollars in wealth from the Venezuelan people and pushing a multitude of outrageous lies in the global media.
