Yum! Pumpkin dessert taste-off and direct action story night on November 13!

Dear Friends,
Thanks so much for making desserts, bringing friends and telling stories. We raised $553 on Thursday night and all of it is going to Portland Rising Tide to support NVDA and resistance to the fossil fuel economy! Yay!

The winning dessert was former RT member Brian Frank’s pumpkin cheesecake with ginger sauce topping.

Tied for runner up was Kari Koch’s pumpkin salted caramel and Cass’ vegan pumpkin doughnuts.


Huge props to Mer for stepping up and telling a story after a last minute cancellation and the fellas (Tim and Justin) at Resistance Ecology for bringing stories from the world of animal liberation.
