Bike Ride on Steamboat Island July 16

Event: 
Sat, 07/16/2016 - 10:00am - 5:00pm

Saturday, July 16, 2016
10 AM
Steamboat Peninsula, Olympia

The ride will start at the Wynne Tree Farm, a 530-acre working tree farm at the base of the Steamboat Peninsula. Riders will travel along the road that parallels this property, and will be able to see the beautiful, and vast, forest and fresh water areas that comprise this property, and that are permanently conserved by Capitol Land Trust and the Wynne family.

The short ride travels up the Peninsula and will stop at Frye Cove Park. Riders can take a short (approximately 1/3 mile) walk to the beach, and will enjoy the scenery while having a snack at the picnic tables. Riders will learn about conservation on the Steamboat Peninsula, especially about a hopeful addition to CLT’s conserved areas which is next to Frye Cove and is home to a half mile of Frye Cove Creek, the stream that drains to Frye Cove and that contains important salmon spawning habitat. After this stop, riders will ride back to the Wynne Tree Farm.

Advantage to the Police: Why the Police Always Win in Court

Event: 
Wed, 03/23/2016 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Venue:  Traditions Fair Trade Cafe, 5th Ave and Water Street in downtown Olympia

The police always seem to win in court.  If they say the defendant assaulted them, usually that’s what the court finds.  If it looks like they used more force than necessary, the court finds there was a reason for that.     

How can they always be so right – unlike the rest of us humans?   

Could the laws actually be skewed to their advantage?  

The laws dealing with their use of deadly force are being revised.  But it’s more than that.

Come listen to three panelists with experience and passion tell you what’s behind it all, and ask your questions afterwards.  Speakers are Leslie Cushman, with the Olympia Coalition to Reform Deadly Force Laws; Jean Meyne, a former prosecutor and defense attorney, and member of the Black Alliance; and Professor Michael Vavrus from Evergreen State College.
