Marc Acito Joins Rally

Marc Acito, Portland author and winner of the Oregon Book Award for his comic novel "How I Paid For College", has agreed to speak at and MC for the rally tonight. It's also looking more likely that Storm Large will be present, perhaps singing and/or speaking.

This is getting big, folks!


  1. Hollie, did you find a bullhorn? Did you still need one?

  2. We've got a sound system! Thanks for checking in.

  3. I'm so glad you two got in touch! And the rally was MINDBLOWING. I got there about 5-10 minutes in, and when I got off the bus at 3rd and Salmon I was in awe of what I was seeing.

    So much for the anti-rally, I heard it wasn't nearly as attended as this. =D

  4. Hey Dana!

    Sorry I didn't catch this comment earlier. I sure appreciate you putting me in touch with Marc-- he has been an amazing and inspiring participant.

    I'm glad you made it to the rally! Here's hoping it yields good things for our mayor and our city.
