Stopping the evictions before they start will require a high degree of organization, as well as lots of media and communication skills, using art and music to do that, front and center, along with direct action.  But the direct action is key.  Portland Emergency Eviction Response (PEER) is ARC’s direct action project.  Sign up here to receive push notifications on your phone, so when an attempted eviction is taking place near you, you can drop whatever you’re doing and head to the front lines.  Together, we can stop the evictions, and control the rent.
