Portland, Oregon is not just a hipster bastion full of women’s bookstores and people raising urban chickens (although, in fairness, both are commonplace). It’s a place that is passionate about books (Powell’s Books is the largest independent book store in the world), beer, bicycles, strip clubs (there are more per capita than any other state in the US), food carts, and politics. As the largest city in a consistently blue state, it is little wonder that the recent election left citizens of Stumptown reeling. In response, several protests have been held, with the latest one ending in a riot. But, the organizer of that protest has, in true Portland style, established a group of volunteers to repair the damage done.
