We try to keep the KBOO PRC resources up-to-date. However, with the volume of events we find, the most up-to-date versions of our collection of events are on and/or our facebook page, Portland Resistance Calendar

We are not affiliated with the folks who create and maintain (though some are KBOO volunteers) - we just love their calendar and its ease of use.

As always, many thanks to Ismoon who uses her librarian powers for good (and finds the vast majority of these events), and to Joe Frazier who kindly lets us use his great photos
