How Do We Protect Our Community: an action plan for Portland
Dispatch holds space for a post-election civic forum with (at least) four goals:
1. Identify local institutions, organizations, and communities at risk.
2. Articulate and connect emerging and existing efforts of resistance and support.
3. Establish a "hotline" and support network for those who wish to report instances of abuse, intimidation, hate speech and aggression.
4. Distinguish the forms of useful action from sensational panic.
***If you plan to attend and wish to work on one of these issues (or a separate one), let us know and we can assign you to a group.
