A "Juneteenth" rememberance: confronting racism in Oregon

June 19th marks the 144th anniversary of the landing of federal troops in Galveston, Texas to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation and finally bring slavery to an end throughout the United States. "Juneteenth" has not only become a day to commemorate the end of slavery but to reflect on the African American experience - from progress made to challenges that remain. As Oregonians celebrate the 150th anniversary of their statehood, Juneteenth is an opportunity to look at how we are contributing - or not - to overcoming racism in Oregon.

What do Lents residents really think of Randy Leonard's baseball stadium deal?

program date: 
Wed, 06/10/2009

At last month's meeting of the Lents Neighborhood Association, Portland City Commissioner Randy Leonard told a less than enthusiastic audience that "Having a Triple A baseball stadium would be the best thing we could ever have happen in Lents." While criticism of the stadium deal grows - including official rejection by the Portland Parks Board - Leonard remains unmoved in his belief that "downtown" interests, not neighborhood residents, are behind the opposition.

But what do the residents of Lents really think? The Lents deal has triggered deep-seated concerns about livability, affordable housing, economic development, historic preservation and how much voice citizens have with City Hall. Dave Mazza talks with Lents residents Kathleen Juergens de Ponce and Nick Christensen, organizers of Friends of Lents Park, about what their neighbors are concerned about and what they really think about Randy Leonard's desire to play ball in Lents. He also talks with Damien Chakwin, chair of the Lents Neighborhood Association and a supporter of the stadium proposal.

Only a couple more weeks to go!

Categories:

I only have a couple more weeks of stand in youth advocating until Erin gets back! I'm excited to have some more free time again- but I'll definitely miss doing all this outreach and mingling!

Today I spent most of my time returning emails- its really cool to continually hear about what the school districts and communities in the Portland Area are up to. I feel more in touch with my community just because I'm starting to get a grip on whats going on on the large scale- the need for alternative education, lack of funds for programs, and hearing the struggles that some schools are going through just to stay open!

The 9th annual Village Building Convergence starts in Portland on June 5. Coming together under the them "Powered by the People," Portlanders will work on projects ranging from water catchment systems and intersection painting to native plant gardening and cob benches.

This was Tony's first interview for the KBOO Youth Collective. He interviews Nancy Roberts- the coordinator for a student exchange program in the Portland area, as well as a student from Turkey currently studying in the United States who is active in this program.

I really enjoyed this interview because you could really tell how much this student was changed by the experience! She was so excited for the chance to be on a radio station in the United States!
