Johanna Brenner joins Mike Snedecker to discuss Oregon's state laws that preempt cities or other localities from raising the minimum wage or passing inclusive zoning laws that would require developers to provide affordable housing. Those interested in raising the minimum wage might contact 15NowPdx; those interested in inclusive zoning might contact the Coalition for Affordable and State Housing, at 503-776-0460.

JoAnn Hardesty Interview

Between Us
program date: 
Fri, 01/23/2015
Depending on who you talk to, longtime Portland activist JoAnn Hardesty's installation as president of the Portland NAACP is either a blessing or a nightmare.  This local civil rights icon's assumption to the office was compared by one post to the impact of an incoming artillery shell.  Don Merrill talks with Ms. Hardesty about how she's focused on helping the organization renew its tarnished image by cleaning house, setting new standards and following the first rule of getting yourself out of a hole; stop digging.
