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.
