On the Streets? Poor? Sick of Broken Promises?

HOUSING FORUM

ALL ARE WELCOME
POWER SLEEPS ON THE STREETS
We believe in working together to figure out what we need and how we can get it. The forum is the first step in that process. By joining together to listen to each other, we can figure out what needs we share. By learning to work together and offer support, everyone becomes stronger and safer. So come make solutions from the bottom up! Chat about your experiences and learn the needs of others at the Portland Coalition Against Poverty Housing Forum. Then get started building campaigns that meet your needs.

A FEW THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:
There are enough empty buildings in Portland to house everyone who sleeps outside.
There is enough vacant land in Portland to feed everyone who is hungry.
Rights are not given or taken away. They are used, or they don't exist.
Know your rights.

The illusion of scarcity has us all in it's grip. 14.Aug.2008 14:26

The illusion of scarcity. If it was known that there is plenty, then the people in power, would have none.

How much is thrown away. How much is left fallow and vacant.

People are just at the very beginning of waking up. They're seeing that mindless consumption does not bring fulfillment. There is plenty, of all of these things except power.

Power is only taken from others.
