UPCOMING PROGRAM: SAVE THE GOOD OLD HOUSES

4 Sep

Portlanders are protesting the demolition of good old houses in many parts of town; City Council is trying to figure out a response but few current Portland residents are aware that twenty-five years ago in Northwest Portland people were protesting, sitting in and getting arrested to save beautiful old houses from the wrecking ball.

Save the date: November 18th,  Tuesday at 7 pm for a conversation with five veterans of this struggle: Frank Dixon, Joleen Jensen-Classen, Rick Michaelson, Nancy Nesewich and Ruth Roth.

More info to come including the venue.
