Community Calendar - Saturday April 4, 2009

It’s April and that’s no fooling! This is Natalie bringing you the weekend Community Calendar on KBOO Portland. Please note that you don’t have to be a speed writer as this information is repeated at the KBOO.fm website.

The Oregon Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is holding a series of walks in April. These events are expected to raise awareness and support for the nearly 7,000 people living with MS throughout the region. More information on dates and locations are listed at www.walkMSoregon.com.
 
In celebration of its 15th anniversary, the National Radio Project and Making Contact invite you to a live recording session on “Green Jobs, Race, and the Economic Recovery”. The session will take place on Saturday 4-6pm at the Center for Intercultural Organizing at 700 N. Killingsworth Street. Sliding scale donations are requested. More information on the project is available at www.radioproject.org. Please RSVP by e-mailing kpham@radioproject.org or calling 510-251-1332 ext. 108.
 
On Saturday, April 4th, the PDX Peace Coalition presents Change, Not War, including a public reading of Dr. Martin Luther King's speech titled "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence". Participants will meet at 2pm in the South Park Blocks and march through downtown Portland. Afterwards, the group will perform the reading of Dr. King's Speech. See www.pdxpeace.org for event details.
 
And while you are in that area, you can visit the Portland Farmers Market at Portland StateUniversity, which is now open for the season.
