When: Sunday, November 11 2012 @ 02:00 PM - - 04:00PM
Contact: The Reading Frenzy
Where: 921 SW Oak St.
Portland, OR
Description:

Join PM Author and activist Vikki Law and contributor Jason Gonzales to celebrate the release of Don't Leave Your Friends Behind: Concrete Ways to Support Families in Social Justice Movements and Communities.

How do we create new, non-hierarchical structures of support and mutual aid and include all ages in the struggle for social justice? Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind is a collection of concrete tips, suggestions, and narratives on ways that non-parents can support parents, children, and caregivers in their communities, social movements, and collective processes. Let's build an all-ages, inclusive revolution that leaves no one behind.

This event is free and all ages.

Victoria Law (co-editor) is a mother, writer and photographer. She is a co-founder of Books Through Bars--NYC, the editor of Tenacious: Art & Writings from Women in Prison, and the author of Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles Of Incarcerated Women (winner of the 2009 PASS Award).

Jason Gonzales lives with his partner and two children in the big trees and wildness of Oregon's Coast Range. Recently, their family's activism is geared to forest defense, and creating multi-generational spaces and family supportive behaviors in the various fights to save the ancient giants of the Pacific Northwest.
