Eugene Resistance Training (ERT): Course Introduction and Discussion

December 17th, 3-5pm
Upstairs Growers Market 454 Willamette St, in Eugene

Eugene Resistance Training will be meeting for the first time on Saturday Dec. 17. Our classes will be based off of the CANVAS (Center for Applied NonViolent Action and Strategies) Core Curriculum, a series of lessons and lectures that are a synthesis of decades of experience from successful nonviolent struggles, written and compiled by leaders across the world.  

This special series of four classes will convene every Saturday from Dec. 31st to Jan. 21st, as well as the recommended introductory class on the 17th. We have the intention of providing current activists and new leaders with the best, most effective tools to confront the recent surge of deeply disturbing actions and rhetoric coming from newly elected officials. Eugene Resistance Training will be offering a intensified course so students will be exposed to the most essential content in a compressed timeframe, allowing them to make immediate use of new skills and techniques to effectively organize a group and run successful campaigns.

The organizers of Eugene Resistance Training want to offer the Eugene/Springfield community these tools to maximize the effectiveness of existing organizers and empower new leaders to come together and organize effectively and innovatively. All classes and materials are completely free, with no specific agenda being promoted except for the commitment to nonviolence as the most effective and humane strategy for resisting and eliminating repression.

The primary source document for the classes can be found here  (downloadable PDF). For more information on CANVAS, including further resources, please visit them here.

Any questions or requests for additional information can be directed to  eugresistancetraining@protonmail.com.

Bikes vs Cars - Film Screening and Audience Discussion with Eugene City Transportation Planning Manager

January 5th, 6pm
Bijou Art Cinema at 492 E 13th Ave in Eugene

$5-8.

Encircle Films presents a screening and discussion with Rob Inerfeld, Eugene City Transportation Planning Manager.

In Bikes vs Cars, director Fredrik Gertten explores the ongoing efforts of bicycle activists, from Copenhagen to Los Angeles to Sao Paulo, who are fighting for their right to ride on city streets against the combined forces of multi-billion dollar auto, oil, and construction lobbies, who are determined to keep our cities car dependent.

The film is a documentary about the bicycle and what an amazing tool for change it can be. It highlights a growing conflict in city planning between the bicycle, which supports a diverse city with a human scale, and the car, which engenders urban sprawl and reliance on fossil fuels.

Trans Health Care Forum and Webinar

January 18th, 5-9 pm
In Eugene and online (location to be emailed following registration)

If you're transgender or nonbinary, we want you to join us!  Why?

We know the election was a shock for our community. Heading into 2017, we want to make sure transgender Oregonians know about all the changes there have been with Medicaid this year, what's expected in 2017, and how we're advancing transgender equality in 2017.

There will be viewing parties across the state, and the entire forum will broadcast on Basic Rights Oregon's Facebook page, so you have plenty of ways to get this vital information.

This event is co-presented with Trans*Ponder and Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon, and is sponsored by Wells Fargo, the sponsor of our Statewide Engagement programs.

A Deeper Black: Race in America

February 3rd, 6pm
Knight Arena


Ta-Nehisi Coates (author of "Between The World and Me") does not tend to pre-write his keynotes. He talks extemporaneously, forcefully, on the events of the day-sometimes, that literal day-and incorporates themes from his writing.

Lately, his focus is on the systemic racism that is inseparable from the growth of the nation: the racist policies that have plundered black bodies, black property, and black lives for economic and social gain. How can we reconcile these acts, many of them ongoing, with the supposedly postracial country some claim we are moving towards?

Other related topics include the distressing series of murders of unarmed black people that has rocked the country and dominated headlines. Coates does not offer a casual "snapshot," does not provide easy answers, and does not dole out false hope.
