From the Portland Resistance Calendar...

Here is a calendar of upcoming events in April, updated 4/25/2017.

These links will connect you to more information, addresses, maps, etc. at pdxactivist.org, "a collaborative community calendar ... to move information about activism and resistance in Portland out of corporate silos like Facebook. This is a place to share protests, assemblies, direct actions, and other events that are open to public participation."

The most up-to-date versions of our collection of events are on https://pdxactivist.org/ and/or our facebook page, Portland Resistance Calendar

We are not affiliated with the folks who create and maintain pdxactivist.org (though some are KBOO volunteers) - we just love their calendar and its ease of use.

As always, many thanks to Ismoon who uses her librarian powers for good (and finds the vast majority of these events).
