V.O.I.C.E. Project Meeting

From the Urban League of Portland:

Make Your VOICE Heard! Voice Our Importance through Community Engagement!

Our community has one of the highest unemployment rates in the state. We have poor health outcomes and our children face unfair discipline in schools that lead to high drop-out rates. What is being done to fix these issues?

Come learn more about how the Urban League of Portland is helping to build a better future for African Americans through the Portland Plan. We want to hear your ideas about how to build a better future for our community. Join us for an evening of sharing and engagement, Wednesday, February 16, 2011 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.

For more information please contact Inger at 503-280-2600 ext. 641 or imcdowell@ulpdx.org


Canvassers Wanted

Meet your neighbors and help your Association connect with the community.  In advance of our next general meeting on November 12th, we will be canvassing the neighborhood door to door to inform everyone of the coming vote on admendment of the bylaws.  Get some excercise while helping to do some much needed outreach.  Contact us at: info@kingneighborhood.org or call 503-460-2756.

Amendment of the King Neighborhood Bylaws

At next month’s meeting, November 12th, we will be discussing a change to the Association’s bylaws. Currently we have a meeting each month that is open to everyone. Only four of the year’s meetings are general meetings so only the board members can vote in 75% of the meetings. In order to encourage participation and empower citizens, we are proposing to make most meetings into general meetings and reserve about four for board meetings. In order to notify the residents, we will be canvassing the neighborhood with postcards. If you can help spread the word, send us your info to info@kingneighborhood.org. If you have any matters that you want discussed at the meeting, let us know that as well. The sooner you send in your topics, the easier to get them on the agenda.
