United Poor People Rise UPP!

This is the text from the UPP 3-fold pamphlet which will soon be made available as an online readable pdf.

The UPP was founded as a people's response to the crisis of poverty and homelessness in Portland. We recognize that this is a national crisis which needs immediate, viable solutions, not promises of future recognition.

We meet in Chapman Square, across from City Hall every day at 10:00am and 6:00pm. Our meetings are consensus based and open to the public and we encourage and request that YOU come join us and help develop solutions that will WORK.

- SOLUTIONS NOT SWEEPS
- HOMES NOT JAILS
- DIALOGUE NOT A DOG AND PONY SHOW
- CREATIVITY NOT CRIMINALIZATION
