Community Rights PDX: how this form of activism allows us to reclaim our power -- free workshops
Community Rights-Based Activism Comes to Portland

 Community Rights-Based Activism comes to Portland. Some 150 communities in 6 east coast states have passed local ordinances that strip corporations of their so-called "rights," banning corporate factory farming, fracking, water extraction for bottling, and more. West Coast communities are beginning to use this method, and here in Portland, Community Rights PDX (CR-pdx) is offering free workshops to teach us how.  Host Stephanie Potter welcomes Kenneth Jones and Susan Rankin, two workshop leaders with CR-pdx.
