@lewisandclark History Professor Elliott Young's article in NACLA on the limits of Sanctuary and the need to tie immigration rights movement to decriminalization and the fight against mass incarceration. #SanctuaryCampus #Sanctuary #endmassincarceration

"In the 1980s, it took the dedication of thousands of committed Sanctuary Movement activists willing to commit civil disobedience and go to jail to protect Central Americans from the brutal hands of right-wing dictators in their countries. Whether today’s sanctuary activists are willing to move beyond words to civil disobedience is an open question. The fate, not only of millions of immigrants, but of the very fabric of our democratic republic hangs in the balance."

conducted in late 2016 shows that 82 percent of Democrats believe that immigrants strengthen our country while only 39 percent of Republicans do.

  • Dear IME Community Members, As you know from Dean Anna Gonzalez's e...mail that was sent out earlier tonight, racist posts were made to the Lewis & Clark College Yik Yak today targeting the Black community. The department of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement, along with the staff of Student Life Division, will join students at 8am in front of Manor House as we stand together against these racist Yik Yaks. As Dean Gonzalez shared, "Hate has no place at Lewis & Clark. We must work together to ensure an inclusive experience for all members of our community and maintain a campus where all are free to learn in a safe and welcoming environment." We look forward to standing together as students, staff, faculty and administration in support of our Black students at Lewis & Clark College. In solidary, Cathy Busha Interim Director, Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement Associate Dean of Students for Student Engagement See More
  • I would appreciate any comments. The American System: Henry W. Corb...ett and Howard V. Morgan of Portland, Oregon by Patrick Ruckert February 19, 2013 http://amatterofmind.org/Pierres_PDFs/GUEST%20CONTRIBUTIONS/POLITICAL_/1._CORBETT_AND_MORGAN_DEFENDERS_OF_THE_AMERICAN_SYSTEM.pdf This report summarily presents some of the critical principles, personalities and battles of The American System within the United States, and how this is reflected in the unified political philosophy and careers of Henry W. Corbett and Howard V. Morgan of Portland, Oregon. Their lives, from the birth of Corbett in 1827, until the death of Morgan in 2012, span almost the entire history of the United States, and thus their histories are a history of the nation. Since Corbett was first a member of the Whig Party, then a Lincoln Republican, and Morgan, 50 years after Cobrett's death, was a Franklin Roosevelt Democrat, one may ask, how can these two men of two different political parties have the same political philosophy? The answer to that question, I hope, shall be demonstrated in the course of this paper. But, to put to rest the wrong answer now, it is not because Morgan married a great granddaughter of Corbett. Both men believed in, and fought for, ideas and policies that dominated the American landscape when they were younger, but which, as they grew older, were overtaken and virtually obliterated, even as they, among others, fought a rear-guard battle. I hope that assertion is demonstrated in the course of this report. It is worth reporting, here, now, the central, apparent, irony that ties these two men together. In 1859-60, Henry Corbett, the Chairman of the Oregon State Republican Party Central Committee, oversaw the dramatic shift in Oregon, from being a Democratic Party dominated state, to one run by Republicans. These were the Lincoln Republicans. Ninety years later, Howard Morgan, as the Chairman of the Oregon State Democratic Party, a state dominated by the Republican Party, engineered the takeover of the State of Oregon by the Democratic Party. This was the Democratic Party of Franklin D. Roosevelt. The irony, I'm afraid, is only in the appearance. The substance of these two, seemingly conflicting, developments gets at the heart of our report. See More
