Sen. Jeff Merkley

Sen. Jeff Merkley

We usually keep our heads down in the (policy) books here at Sightline, but we’re turning 20 this year and, what the heck, it’s time to celebrate!

We’re kicking off the year-long celebration on April 5th with a very special shindig in Portland. For all of you in Oregon and Southwest Washington, we hope you’ll join us.

You can buy your tickets today via Brown Paper Tickets.

We’re excited to announce that Senator Jeff Merkley will be our special guest for the evening. Alan Durning, Anna Fahey, Eric de Place, and Clark Williams-Derry will be there too, so you’ll get the chance to chat with your favorite researcher in person, rather than in the comments section.

The progress we’ve made since 1993 wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our community. Thank you for sharing, using, and contributing to our work over the past 20 years. Pat yourself on the back, and celebrate with us!

The fine print (aka party details):

  • Date and time: April 5, 7-9:30pm
  • Location: UNION/PINE, 525 SE Pine St, Portland (map)
  • Ticket Price: $25-$75 (pay what you can!)
  • Special Guest: Senator Jeff Merkley

There will be delicious food prepared by sustainably-minded Artemis Catering, “Kick Axe” ale from Lompoc Brewing, Dry Soda Co.’s bubbly goodness, and Yamhill County’s own Sokol Blosser wine.

Note: This is the first of many other 20th anniversary-themed events and blog posts. Keep your eyes peeled for a special 20th anniversary page launching in early April that will keep you up-to-date on other exciting parties and special events throughout the year.
