leave a comment »

Meredith Reese is creating ripples in Portland.  In the early stages of the 21st Century, in a town with a long history of radical organizing, Meredith is carrying on a torch of activism that has been passed down from one generation to the next in Portland for many years. She has set a tone for organizing, working to both educate the community and bring a diverse set of activist together through the PDX Peace Coalition and through organizing for workers rights with the May Day Coalition.

Meredith also writes for the Socialist Worker, a newspaper and website with a long history of reporting news of everyday people from around the globe.  Meridith is a working class poet. A Yale graduate who has studied poetry from both an academic perspective and from working in the trenches of urban America.
