Vote NO to fluoridation chemicals on this May’s ballot!
One of our favorite moments this month in Australia included a visit to Phillips Shirts’ Archive a Shop by Phillips in Melbourne. We had a blast! Thanks for the threads, you guys.
I have worked my tail off bringing bands together for something I feel very strongly about. In the last week I’ve organized an event that will bring together 17 bands and 3 DJs to stand united in support of democracy and our right to vote. Our right to make decisions collectively as a community and a vibrant independent city. This event will represent Portland in her truest form, and send a message to our government that the artists and citizens of Portland are willing to stand up to them when they are not serving our city and her people they way they should be. Besides that, it’s gonna be one helluva fun mini festival! Tons of music and performance artists, food carts, raffles and all kinds of creative, good spirited, family fun!

Who: This event is being organized by Zia McCabe with The Dandy Warhols in cooperation with Clean Water Portland PAC. Clean Water Portland is leading the campaign to qualify the Portland City Council’s water fluoridation decision for a public vote. The campaign is working to gather the 20,000 valid signatures needed to qualify the referendum measure that will give the public a chance to vote.
What & Why: An all day, three stage concert to promote the public’s right to vote on the controversial water fluoridation decision recently announced by the Portland City Council. The event is aimed at highlighting why the City Council’s decision, which was directly contrary to three previous public votes in Portland opposing water fluoridation, should be put to voters once again through a citizen referendum. Petition signatures will be collected and all funds raised will be donated to Clean Water Portland for their signature gathering effort.
