Neighborhood Town Hall June 30 on the Economic Crisis

How did this economic mess happen? What can we do about it? This huge economic crisis is causing pain but also opens up opportunities for making a better life. The Jobs with Justice (plus 18 other endorsers) free forum offers a chance to discuss the possibilities.
Robin Hahnel, economics professor at PSU, and Alan Hipolito, from the community group Verde, will help us understand how this economic mess happened and will provide examples of an economy that works for ordinary people instead of corporate and bank CEOs. Break out groups will discuss practical actions and solutions for the critical issues of jobs, foreclosures, and health care. Held at St. Charles Catholic Church, 5310 NE 42nd Ave., Portland. Doors open at 6:30 for refreshments and to browse resource tables on jobs programs/training, housing counseling, and other social services. Program at 7 pm. Spanish translation available, as is free childcare. Call Jobs with Justice at 503-236-5573 for information.
