First Unitarian Church of Portland
Buchan Reception Room
SW 12th and Salmon

Featuring Chuck Collins, Author, Co-founder of United for a Fair Economy, & Director of Program on Inequality and the Common Good (Institute for Policy Studies)

With Marty Hart-Landsberg, Author, Professor of Economics and Director of the Political Economy Program at Lewis and Clark College, focusing on political economy, economic development and international economics

Are you facing hard times or concerned about local and global “norms” of economic insecurity? Trends confirm the difficulties that lay ahead, yet deep, meaningful and hopeful communities of mutual aid and resilience are emerging. Learn why our economic “recovery” is problematic and how groups around the nation have taken economic security into their own hands in a way that promotes life and real wealth. Opportunities to deepen economic security with other Portlanders will be presented.
