If they tell us to risk our lives for their pockets we refuse. Their sacred cow of a line going up and to the right is not worth a single loss in our community. We take care of each other.

Under the Stay at Home order providing food is still allowed and we will continue to operate while following social distancing best practices

This is a very good, simple @SethTobocman@twitter.com piece that I think about in times of crisis, and it keeps me grounded. We know this is the reality. We are going to make it through this, & when this is over, we work to make sure it never happens again. That's the work. It doesn't end.

Covid-19, Mutual aid network for Douglas County, OR 

A new FB group that was started yesterday. As far as I can see there is not a main form to fill out for volunteers/people seeking help, but I am going to suggest it to the admin and offer my help as soon as my join request is approved.

@pdxcovid19mutualaid Open offer to help students on here with their homework/tutoring! I'm an instructional assistant at a public high school and will be working far less than usual due to closures. I've been in just about every class — English, Biology, Social Studies, Health, four levels of math... I'm very happy to read materials aloud, and help rephrase things or break them down.

I also have experience with and resources for Latin, permaculture/agroecology, cooking, and duck husbandry!

With it becoming more and more likely that many kids will be out of school for the rest of the year it's time to start thinking about online free school classes. What class could you teach online to community kiddos?

Tomorrow, March 18, food box deliveries will be rolling out in Portland central.
Please sign up if you need food.

It sounds like the moratorium on evictions has 3 gotchas you should be aware of:

* It only applies if you can show "documentation or other objectively verifiable means" that you lost income due to the pandemic
* You MUST notify your landlord before the rent is due that you can't pay due to loss of income resulting from the pandemic
* You MUST repay within 6 months of the Portland state of emergency being lifted

If anyone has any questions about available networks and resources in Portland feel free to reach out. ❤️
