Winner "Audience Award"

Join us for an evening of fundraising and film - as we present a screening of this locally shot, historic documentary to benefit NO on CONSTITUTIONAL AMMENDMENT 36.

Portland mayoral candidate Tom Potter and activist Kathleen Saadat and will be in attendance for a Q&A following the 7pm screening. Both participated in the film and will comment/answer questions regarding their experience.

Ten years ago, critics and educators hailed the documentary "Ballot Measure 9" as "mandatory viewing for those still fighting to make America a true democracy." Shot during the Clinton/Bush election, "Ballot Measure 9" follows activists on both sides through nine months of an inflammatory initiative campaign in Oregon over the question of gay rights. Still resonant, it is particularly timely now. A chilling portrait of the politics of intolerance, this classic documentary offers a valuable window to discussions about the health of democracy and the kind of society in which we want to live.

Donations to "No on Measure 36"will be accepted before and after the screening.
