Interrupting Hate in Public Spaces Ensuring the safety of our communities is paramount. Yet public vitriol is skyrocketing, tensions flare at a moment’s notice and Oregon is consistently ranked in the top five states of per capita hate incidents. Participants will learn how to identify, understand and overcome the inhibitions that prevent them from supporting targets of hate. They will learn and use tactics for interrupting verbal hate; while centering and empowering the target. They will understand the risks involved in intervention and how to de-escalate a situation.

Expect Census workers to visit

Beginning August 18 though mid-October, the U.S. Census Bureau will be performing our first field operation for the 2020 Decennial Census.  Basically we are sending Census staff, referred to as 'Listers', out into neighborhoods to verify addresses.  Approximately 35% of all addresses in the US will be verified by our Listers.  The Lister will first knock on the door, identify themselves and ask a few questions about the residence, or what we refer to as a Housing Unit.  The Lister will display a Department of Commerce/US Census Bureau identification and carry a U.S. Census briefcase. 

Here is a link that provides more information about the AddCan project.


U.S. Census Bureau Announces the Start of First Major Field Operation


Today, the U.S. Census Bureau briefed the media on the launch of address canvassing, the first major field operation of the 2020 Census.

We also have a map called the 2020 Census In Field Address Canvassing (IFAC) Viewer which indicates exactly which housing units will be contacted.  Using the + and - button in the upper left hand corner, you can see more detail by street.  Here's the link.


We think it is important for you to know that Census staff will be going into neighborhoods throughout Oregon starting August 18 in order to verify and update addresses in preparation for the decennial census.   Please assist me in spreading this important message.  We would ask that you disseminate this information to your staff, cities in your County, community based organizations, neighborhood associations, or anyone else that might be interested.  We also have already notified your police or sheriff departments about this field operation just in case neighbors start calling the police.

I would welcome the opportunity to talk further with your staff, cities, neighborhood associations, community based organizations, libraries, or any one else that would like additional information about this program, or in general about the upcoming 2020 Decennial Census.

Thank you.
