PTM Foundation is Here.

After 18 months of strategic planning and organizational development work, PTM Foundation officially launched today!

The organization is focused on building community resilience, empathy, and awareness through music, stories, art, education and connectivity. We aim to convene and organize partnerships and projects informed by community need, then mobilize Portugal. The Man’s listeners and supporters around that shared vision.

I am honored to serve as PTM Foundation Director and to have had the opportunity to partner with Portugal. The Man and the community to build this organization from the ground up over the past couple of years — and I’m super proud of everyone involved.

Please take a moment to check out what we’re up to below and dive in with us at www.PTMFoundation.org

Happy One Year Anniversary to Me and Portugal. The Man!

I joined Team PTM officially 12 months ago this week and we’ve been on a rad organizational development journey together ever since.

So proud to be part of PTM Foundation and have never felt more inspired by a group of people than I do with this band, board, and our community partners.

Thank you all! I love you. 🤘

Team PTM Makin’ Moves

Been a long, rainy couple of weeks in Portland, Oregon — but full of opportunities to connect and make sure the people I care about know how much they mean to me.

Lots of really exciting announcements coming up soon, but here’s a little bit of what I’ve been up to with Portugal. The Man as we move toward launching PTM Foundation this year…

Portland City Commissioner Amanda Fritz, Senior Policy Advisor Cynthia Castro, Tribal Relations Director Laura John, and the Office of Government Relations have been working hand-in-hand with Communities of Indigenous Peoples and allies across the region to build a coalition of support for city-wide policy which will ensure that Land Acknowledgements take place at all City of Portland events! So awesome. Nice work, Commissioner! Thanks for hosting us last week at City Hall. We’re all super excited to support these efforts.

Later that same day, Zachary Carothers and I went to hear Tara Zhaabowekwe Houska speak about her work on the frontlines of environmental justice at the intersection of Indigenous Rights and it was nothing short of completely inspired.‬

‪We also had breakfast with Tara that morning and got to hear all about her mission and vision. So glad we got to connect while she was in town. My main takeaway is always: I have so much to learn.

The reality is, Indigenous Peoples face persistent and enduring challenges to their communities, their lands, and their basic human rights, with extremely limited support from the broad spectrum of philanthropic institutions…which is why the band has decided to launch PTM Foundation in the first place. The extreme disparity is wrong, and we’re going to do something about it.

Join special guests Portugal. The Man, Jillene Joseph from Native Wellness InstituteMultnomah County Democrats, and many other rad folks on Saturday, March 21st in Portland to help #GetOutTheNativeVote and raise crucial funds for Indigenous-led programs across the U.S.!

We’re also headed to DC this weekend for the National Congress of American Indians Awards where Portugal. The Man is being honored with the 2020 Public Sector Leadership Award!

See you soon, East Coast. 🏆

Portugal. The Advocacy

Up early working on a bunch of advocacy stuff for Portugal. The Man. I love every single thing this band stands for, and each hour I get to spend working with them feels like time well spent.

I think about this Fred Rogers quote a lot: “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’”

For me and so many of you, the news has never been scarier — but I also find myself surrounded by helpers, and embraced by people who care enough to actually do the hard work it takes to make change happen.

Thank you to the best band in the world. This is fucking beautiful. 🖤
