Hoping many of our neighbors will join us for the Lents Town Hall on April 4th. There will be a presentation followed by answers to questions pre-submitted to the mayor and city commissioners. There will be time alloted after this for Q&A from audience. Please see the link at bottom of post for public comment procedure. We strive to provide a forum in which everyone can be heard and ask for your consideration in making this possible. Thanks- Autumn

LENTS TOWN HALL

April – 4- 2017

7:00PM – 9:00PM

Lents Seventh Day Adventist Church

8835 SE Woodstock Blvd.

The Lents Neighborhood Association Livability Committee has been hard at work organizing a Town Hall to focus on a host of livability concerns in Lents ranging from inequity in taxes to the impact of the housing crisis on our community. We are seeking your input and participation. This will be an opportunity to ask questions and problem solve with your city Commissioners. It will be a moderated event and we ask that you pre-submit questions, concerns, solutions for the Mayor and Commissioners to us at-Livabilitycommittee@gmail.com.  We hope to see you there. This is an important opportunity for our community to come together and be heard.

Lents United Against Hate

Lents was recently the site of hate speech and harassment directed at Latino worshippers at a church located in our neighborhood.

Lents is one of the most diverse communities in our city and the Lents Neighborhood Association honors this diversity and recognizes the value of it.

Our community/neighbors deserve a safe place to live, work and worship.

The LNA and our community stand together against hate and intolerance.

The LNA is signing on with Portland United Against Hate a community initiated partnership of Community Based Organizations, Neighborhood Associations, concerned communities and the city. If you have experienced harassment or witnessed harassment,  it is important to know you have support. Here is a link which provides further information about Portland United Against Hate. https://www.portlandoregon.gov/article/627581
