Northwest Academy

Portland, OR 97205, USA (map)

Northwest Academy 1208 SW 13th Ave, 2nd floor Portland, OR

When coming up 13th, there is an entrance to a surface lot behind our building. We're in the 2-story building (not the 5-story building). The lot should be empty at meeting time. Park anywhere except in the auction winner’s spot. If the the lot is full, use the lot behind the 5-story building.



Learn about what Senator Ron Wyden and his team are doing to protect your privacy! Grace Stratton (from Sen. Wyden's local office) will be at the meeting, and Chris Soghoian (from the DC office) will join us remotely, and they'll discuss the following topics:

  • Surveillance: including stingrays, cell phone tracking by law enforcement, border searches of laptops and phones.

  • Cybersecurity: how to stay safe online and what Senator Wyden is doing to make sure that Oregonians are more secure from hackers.

  • Consumer privacy: Facebook, Cambridge Analytica, etc.

Join us for a great presentation and discussion! We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!
