Tickets are on sale now for the SPJ panel discussion "Covering the Oregon Standoff" at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16, at the Kennedy School McMenamins in Portland.

Join us for a discussion of how Oregon media covered the Malheur Wildlife Refuge takeover, lessons learned, and advice for other journalists. 
Panelists include Les Zaitz (The Oregonian), Amanda Peacher and John Sepulvado (Oregon Public Broadcasting), Wanda Moore (KTVZ), and Samantha White (Burns Times-Herald). Jeff Wohler, retired Oregonian editor, will moderate.

The event, hosted by the Oregon Territory Chapter of SPJ, is free for current SPJ members and $10 for non-members.

We'll provide food and non-alcoholic drinks. A Q&A session will follow the 90-minute panel discussion. Please stick around to socialize with your fellow journalists. There's also plenty to explore at the McMenamins Kennedy School, at 5736 N.E. 33rd Ave. in Portland.

Journos! Journalism-adjacent friends who like beer!

Come join us for drinks at the Green Dragon from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 22!

Invite your colleagues and friends! We've got two tables reserved in the bistro area near the front doors.

Please RSVP on our Facebook event page.

Green Dragon Bistro & Brew Pub is located at 928 S.E. 9th Ave. in Portland.

We're hoping to make this happy hour a monthly event (fourth Tuesday of every month, most likely) with a rotating location. Green Dragon is a very beery place with a ton of taps, but also has liquor, cider and non-alcoholic beverages as well. And food!

We hope to see you there!
