November 14 Mt Moving Cafe

Founded in 1973 by an unaffiliated Feminist/Socialist Collective proclaiming themselves anti-profit. They had the second espresso machine and first restaurant children’s playroom in Portland, good vegetarian food (they won Willamette Week’s Best Cheesecake award). Every day of the week featured a different activity: old people’s music night; poetry readings; Wednesday Women’s night; great bands and amazing dances on the weekend; political presentations; health discussions you name it. Tips were collected each month for a different organization who made a bulletin board about themselves.

Panel will feature four members of the original collective:
Ellen Goldberg
Peter Thacker
Andy Clark
Kiera O’Hara
