9:00 PM Scheduled end of Business Meeting

We will be voting on ALTERNATE SCC DELEGATES. There are openings to the State Central Committee — the governing body of The Democratic Party of Oregon. We will vote to select 4 male and 3 female alternates to fill the remaining terms. Consider submitting your name for consideration at the meeting with the opportunity to attend the 4th Quarter SCC meeting on Dec 1 and Dec 2 as an alternate delegate.

We will be voting on three amendments to the bylaws. You may find these amendments here. These have to do with:

  1. Removing elected public officials as members of the Central Committee, unless they are otherwise members by virtue of being a PCP or officer; and,
  2. Changes to the way the Party Organizational Meeting is run in odd-numbered years.

We will also be voting on one resolution: 2018-16 Regarding Disenfranchisement and Eradication of Transgender/Non-Binary People

It is 5 days until the election! In order to elect Kate Brown and defeat these disastrous ballot measures, we need every PCP in the Party to get involved.

We are running a a sock drive for homeless shelters and the houseless. Please bring new or gently used socks either to the Central Committee meeting or to MCDHQ (3551 NE Sandy). Two-thirds of the socks will go to shelters, and one-third will go directly to the houseless.

Watch this space for minutes and agenda.

Ballots are on their way!

Keep an eye on your mailbox — the one on the side of your house, not your email inbox — because ballots are on the way!

You should receive your mail-in ballot in the next several days. If you don’t see your ballot in a few days, you should check your voter registration and make sure it’s current.

If you are registered, but at the wrong address, you should update your registration on the County Elections Division site, located here. We suggest commenting that you need to be sent a ballot at the new address.

Race Informed Social Justice: The Intersection of Race, Sex, Gender and Power

Date: 10/26 6:30-8:30 pm
Location: MCDHQ (3551 Sandy Blvd.)

Dear Friends and Supporters:

Please join the Multnomah County Democrats in an informative event and discussion about power and how it intersects with other identities. Not since the 1991 confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas has this dynamic been so publicly examined and yet so poorly understood.
It has been 27 years since that hearing. Now we will ask what has changed and what has stayed the same. Text and testimony from the trial that started the public conversation in the fall of 1991 will be read, shared and discussed.

Women at the intersection of race, sex, gender and power will share their truths in an effort to explore how we can we come to terms with some troubling truths.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions and this free event is open to the public, all are welcome.
Date 10/26 from 6:30-8:30 pm.

Please RSVP Rachelle Dixon at: ViceChair1@Multdems.org

The meeting will be held at the Multnomah County Democrats office at 3551 NE Sandy Blvd Portland, Oregon 97232. Disabled parking is available in the rear of the building.

Light refreshments will be provided.
