Portland Youth Alliance!

We're creating a Portland Youth Alliance in Portland, Oregon, and we thought we'd share with you all. Feedback and criticism is super duper welcome!


The name more or less explains it all. The Portland Youth Alliance (tentative name!) will be a union-style organization that works to gain young people more power in school and community decisions. We want the Alliance to be the beginning of a youth empowerment movement in Portland. We believe young people have the right to influence the direction of their schools and community, and through the power-in-numbers of the Alliance, we'll make sure that right is recognized and respected.

We're taking a page from the Philadelphia Student Union. Check them out, and imagine the possibilities for Portland...

Our first planning meeting is next Monday -- EVERYONE'S WELCOME!

Monday, July 3, 2006
11:00 am -- 12:30 pm
Common Grounds Coffee House (just west of SE Hawthorne/44th)
Bus 14 stops right in front, and lines 15 and 75 stop within a few blocks. Check out Trimet for more info!

As always, you can contact us at:
[phone] 971-222-4153
[email] intercomproject@gmail.com
[myspace] myspace.com/intercomproject

The Alliance is a project of the Intercom Project. Intercom is interested in cultivating a long-term youth empowerment movement in Portland, and this Alliance is just the first (HUGE) step.
