Black History Month movie showing at the Hollywood Theater

In observance of Black History Month, Multnomah County Democrats would like to share with you a piece of African American history that is American history and Democratic Party history as well.

On February 10th, 1989:

Ron Brown, a former Supreme Court lawyer and leader of the National Urban League, was elected chairman of the Democratic Party National Committee. He was the first African American to ever serve in this role.

Ron played an integral role in running a successful 1992 Democratic National Convention and in Bill Clinton's successful 1992 presidential run. Ron's career as Democratic party leader serves to remind us that Black History is American History, it is OUR history.

To further commemorate Black History Month, Multnomah County Democrats invite you to join us at the Hollywood Theater on Sunday February 19 at 4:45 pm for am showing of "I Am Not Your Negro", a powerful documentary about race in America.

Tickets for the 4:45 PM Matinee are $6. with a $1 service charge if purchased online, through the Hollywood Theater website. Please purchase your tickets early and meet us at the theater by 4:30 pm.

January Reorganization Meeting

Our recent influx of more than 130 new PCPs at the December 20th meeting has necessitated the rescheduling of our reorganization meeting to a larger venue.  Fortunately for all of us, we were able, with the help of our District Leadership in HD 44, to find a space that is large enough and also includes an abundance of free parking as well as access to Trimet.

We will meet at the North Portland Fraternal Order of the Eagles at 7611 N. Exeter Ave., 97203 on Saturday, January 28th.  Credentialing will begin at 11 AM and will close at 1 PM.   Our meeting will take place from 1:00 PM to 4 PM.  

At the conclusion of our meeting to fill officer positions, we will elect Delegates and Alternates to our State Central Committee Delegation, and to our 1st, 3rd and 5th Congressional District Committees.  

Stay tuned for all the details, including information concerning the officer positions to be filled and the declared candidates for those positions.
