This weekend

This Thursday, October 10th, Portland State University will decide whether to disarm campus police officers.

Disarming campus officers was already a problem for some students— then Jason Washington was killed by officers responding to a fight.

Learn more at the link above, sign the petition to disarm officers here, and attend the meeting (event).

Portland State University Admissions, 1800 SW 6th Ave * 8 am – 11:30 am

PSU administration avoided a first-day-of-class strike from campus workers this week, by reaching a deal with their union. Read the excellent story from the The Pacific Sentinel.
