Predictive Scheduling: Right for Oregon?

June 2nd, 12-1 p.m.
UO Academic Extension at the Baker Center at 975 High in Eugene

There are bills pending in the Oregon Legislature to require employers to pay employees the equivalent of 4 hours work if the employee is called in to work, but due to the employer, does not work a full shift. This applies to many businesses, but particularly restaurants. The bill also requires employers in certain industries to engage in an interactive process on scheduling and requires employers to give the employees' requested scheduling unless there is a bona fide business reason. These and other requirements of the bill are intended to help workers and are favored by some workers and their supporters and strongly opposed by the Oregon Chamber of Commerce and other business groups who refer to the bill as the "Restrictive Scheduling Bill."

You will learn what benefits and burdens this bill, if passed, would create for the parties and what the spillover effect would be on the public. You will hear about polling and studies done by both sides on this important issue.

June 4th, 2 p.m.
Downtown Eugene Public Library at 10th & Olive

Historian Ellen Eisenberg will share the story of Oregon's Jewish community during a time of dramatic growth and change.

She will highlight the rebirth of smaller communities around the state, the embrace of post-denominational Jewry, spirituality, and a progressive ethos of environmentalism and inclusion.
Ellen Eisenberg is the author of "Embracing a Western Identity: Jewish Oregonians, 1849-1950" and "The Jewish Oregon Story, 1950-2015." She is the Dwight and Margaret Lear Professor of American History at Willamette University. Her book "The First to Cry Down Injustice?

Criminal Alien-Nations: Child Migrants to the US Deported as "Criminal Alien" Adults

June 6th, 3:30-5 p.m.
Fenton 117, University of Oregon

This presentation of CLLAS-funded research will be shared by Anthropology graduate student, Tobin Hansen.

What are the motivations for and the consequences of deporting long-time U.S. residents as "criminal aliens"? This research examines the exclusionary logics and mechanisms by which some childhood arrivals to the United States are ensnared in crime control regimes and, as adults, are incarcerated, designated "criminal aliens," and deported to Mexico.

It also explores the aftermath of deportation as men forge ahead with their lives in unfamiliar northern Mexico communities. This talk will situate deportation's social, gendered, and legal processes that render it a forcible sociopolitical displacement. Tobin argues that deportees' extreme hardship and multiple vulnerabilities recast the moral valuation of "criminal alien" deportation itself.


June 6th, 4-6 p.m.
Kesey Square in Eugene

Back away from the news and come see all the "good things happ'n" in our town! Meet and welcome Michael Tellinger (on world tour to tell the townspeople about Ubuntu contributionism). Music, singing, organizations and groups doing "Good Things".

Imagining Freedom Teach-In: "The Big Picture: Structural Racism, Equity, and Intersectionality" Featuring Rinku Sen

June 6th, 4 - 5:30 p.m.
Knight Library Browsing Room, UO

In times of retrenchment and crisis, the capacity to imagine, debate, feel and express alternative futures grows urgent. What do we want for ourselves and for our world? What insights and lessons can we draw from past struggles? The teach in will include a short opening performance by members of the UO Hip Hop Ensemble.
Rinku Sen  is one of the leading voices in the racial justice movement, building upon the legacy of civil rights by transforming the way we talk about race, from something that is individual, intentional, and overt to something that is systemic, unconscious, and hidden. She is the president and executive director of Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation and the publisher of the award-winning news site Colorlines.  Sen's cutting edge book Stir it Up, read widely by community organizers and taught on campuses across the country, theorized a model of community organizing that integrates a political analysis of race, gender, class, poverty, sexuality, and other issues. She is also the author of The Accidental American, a trenchant account of immigration, race and economic justice organizing in the era of "crimmigration."

What is Missing Middle Housing and Is It Missing in Eugene? 

June 9th, 12 - 1 p.m.
UO Academic Extension at the Baker Center, 975 High St. in Eugene

The term "Missing Middle" was coined by Daniel Parolek of Opticos Design, Inc. in 2010 to define a range of multi-unit or clustered housing types compatible in scale with single-family homes that help meet the growing demand for walkable urban living.  

There is a shift in housing demand to smaller and less expensive housing both for the younger and older segments of Eugene. With the median listing price for housing now at $285,000 our housing supply is becoming more and more out of sync with that demand.

Josh Skov will explain the issue, the challenges that exist in providing Missing Middle and suggest the steps we might take to provide the types of housing that folks are seeking.

Let's stand together in these trying times! Join us for a statewide NAACP Lobby Day. The current administration continues to challenge the great progress our nation made under the Obama administration. It is our obligation to stand firm in defense of this progress, understanding the continued need to engage politically.

This legislative session has been difficult as the budget discussions have been a priority. Nevertheless, there continue to be many issues that we hope to address and move forward. Chief among these, due to the current administration pulling out of The Paris Climate Agreement, is House Bill 2135 (otherwise known as The Clean Energy Jobs Bill.

We want to show our state legislative that the Eugene and Lane County area is concerned and activated, by bringing a strong group to the State Capitol to lobby our legislators.

The America Syndrome: Apocalypse, War, and Our Call to Greatness

June 21st, 6 p.m.
Downtown Eugene Public Library at 10th & Olive

Join Betsy Hartmann for a talk based on her latest work, "The America Syndrome: Apocalypse, War, and Our Call to Greatness." In this thought-provoking, big-idea book, Hartmann sheds light on a pervasive but largely ignored theme that shapes the American mindset: apocalyptic thinking, or the belief that the end of the world is near.

Tracing our nation's fixation with doomsday from the Puritans to the present, Hartmann makes a compelling case that apocalyptic fears are deeply and negatively intertwined with the American ethos. She shows how apocalyptic thinking has contributed to some of the nation's biggest problems, such as inequality, permanent war, and the exploitation of natural resources. Hartmann encourages readers to reclaim human agency: by changing the way we think, we just might change the world.

Betsy Hartmann is professor emerita of development studies and senior policy analyst of the Population and Development Program at Hampshire College. She is the author of "Reproductive Rights and Wrongs: The Global Politics of Population Control," and two political thrillers, "The Truth about Fire" and "Deadly Election."

WYVIWYG -- Who You Vote Is Who You Get!

June 23rd, 12-1 p.m.
UO Academic Extension at the Baker Center, 975 High St. in Eugene

Five times in U.S. history, the winner of the popular vote has lost the presidency, most recently in 2000 and 2016. Current voter frustration with the electoral college has resulted in the formation of the National Popular Vote Organization in 2006 to promote reform legislation, known as the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC).

Elizabeth Donley and Eileen Reavey are leaders in Oregon's grassroots efforts to get the NPVIC bill passed this year and have been working with the National Popular Vote Organization, Daily Kos, Common Cause, League of Women Voters, Bus Project, and other allied groups and volunteers. They will explain in depth what the NPV is, why it is needed, and why it is a logical, constitutional way to reform our archaic electoral college system. They will also cover common myths and misconceptions about our electoral system and about the national popular vote.
