What: discussion of affordable housing advocacy possibilities w/Oregon Opportunity Network
When: Thursday, June 5, 6:30-8:30pm
Where: NECN Office at King School - 4815 NE 7th Ave.
Oregon ON is a statewide coalition of community development and affordable housing organizations, which
is currently developing a campaign to advocate for "new, significant and sustainable resources for affordable
housing and anti-poverty services in Multnomah County." Executive Director John Miller will join us to talk about this new campaign, and how we can get involved.
We will also get updates on the work areas that were identified at our last meeting:
This sub-committee has prepared a draft letter that we can present to our various neighborhood associations and other community-based organizations, asking them to endorse our objective of increasing the stock of affordable housing. We will review and revise this letter, and discuss a plan for presenting it to our organizations.
Identify specific advocacy opportunities/campaigns: There are two immediate opportunities for advocacy that have come up in recent weeks: 1) A proposal by Commissioner Saltzman to dedicate funds from a lodging tax on short-term rentals (e.g. Air BnB) to affordable housing; and 2) The allocation of $20 million for affordable housing in the Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area. We will discuss how we want to be involved in these two issues.
Help bring food and hope to hungry schoolchildren in our neighborhood! Invite your friends and family to join us for an afternoon of song, celebration and packing lunches for neighborhood kids.
Sing folk & freedom songs with NE Portland musicians Day Old Pastries, and hear a great Gospel singer and saxophonist. There will be special Dr. King-related activities for kids, led by Concordia University student leaders.
WHEN: 1-3 pm, on Monday JANUARY 20, 2014
WHERE: Maranatha Church, at NE12th Avenue between Skidmore & Mason
Please bring a can of soup, chili or ravioli to donate.

The Sabin Community Association will soon kick off a revamped "welcome" program that entails hand delivering a welcome letter to new residents of our community. In addition to welcoming our new neighbors, the letters describe ways to become involved in neighborhood activities and include discount coupons for
more than a dozen local businesses, as a way to introduce new residents to the vibrant array of Sabin-located and Sabin-owned businesses.
We’d love your help! If you’d like to welcome our new neighbors, please email Michelle at: MichelleGanowJones@yahoo.com.
