    Privacy and Data Protection Residents Rights initiative community engagement

    Old Church

    The City of Portland is pleased to invite you to our Privacy and Data Protection Residents Rights initiative community engagement on November 6th at 10 AM at the Old Church (1422 SW 11th Ave. Portland, OR 97201)

    The Bureau of Equity and Human Rights, the mayor’s office and Smart City PDX, are coordinating an internal work in the city to develop a list of Privacy and Data Protection Residents Rights for city services. We have invited Digital Privacy officials from the cities of Seattle and Oakland to help us with their expertise to facilitate this process.

    We are aiming to bring a first draft of that list of Privacy and Data Protection Rights to this two-hour community session, where we expect to have an interactive work with community members that are particularly involved with promoting digital equity and developing technological capacity.

    If the city of Portland passes a set of Privacy and Data Protection Residents Rights, it would be the first in the nation to step forward in creating a new level of understanding our communities in a data-rich society.

    Adopting privacy and data protection rights not only involves a deeper commitment from the city, but also greater community engagement and understanding of the responsibilities of owning your own data and the implications of that in people’s lives.

    Please, reserve your space using in the following link and join us in this discussion. we are looking forward to listening to your opinion and perspectives on these important issues: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3725271

    Naked in Public: the Victorian era architecture of Warren H. Williams

    Old Church

    “Naked in Public” Lecture Exposes Surprising Side of Victorian Era through Works of Renowned Architect

    At a time when many Portland streets were still a sea of mud, architect Warren H. Williams brought masterful building design to the city. Williams’ best-known surviving work is the 1883 icon known as The Old Church located in downtown Portland. Research historian Eileen Fitzsimons offers an insightful presentation on the less-recognized aspects of the Victorian age in her lecture, “Naked in Public: The Victorian era architecture of Warren H. Williams” at The Old Church on June 12 at 7 p.m.

    Fitzsimons, who has spent 30 years researching Williams and influences on his architectural style, says that his buildings tell us about the people of the time, how they viewed their surroundings and the era they lived in. “We think of people from the Victorian age as modest, genteel – even stuffy, but their buildings reveal another side of their character: one of opulence and a flair for the flamboyant,” she explains.

    “Naked in Public” is the program event for the Old Church Annual Meeting. Appetizers will be served at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7:00 p.m. Dessert and coffee will follow. Admission is free and open to the public.
