Anti-Capitalism at Work is a hybrid in-person and digital round-table discussion series on work, working, and how to move away from toxic capitalist systems into liberatory systems, even and especially when we’re not the boss.
Facilitated by Marina Martinez-Bateman, CEO of New Coyote Consulting, and hosted by the iconic, historic Clinton Street Theater in the heart of Southeast Portland, Anti-Capitalism at Work offers a place for us to come together as a community to discuss our challenges and solutions as working individuals.
Sunday, September 25, 2022 from 4:30 to 5:30pm
Are you working (or being encouraged to work) more and more hours, but feeling less and less productive? Toxic Productivity is the phenomenon of working to unhealthy, sometimes deadly ends.
Consent at Work
Sunday, November 20, 2022 from 4:30 to 5:30pm
Consent is mandatory, we know this. And yet, do we feel like we can say no to work that doesn’t align with our values, or is it outside the scope outlined in our contracts and job descriptions?
Unrealistic Work Goals
Sunday, January 8, 2023 from 4:30 to 5:30pm
Have you experienced the ceiling becoming the floor at your job? Or responsibilities piling on with no end in sight? This month, we’re talking about how we cope when last year’s best is next year’s failure.
What’s Real Self-Care?
Sunday, March 19, 2023 from 4:30 to 5:30pm
Self care is either held up or mocked as being all lavender baths and adult coloring books, but what does it really mean to take care of ourselves truly? This discussion will address how to care for our mind, body and spirit as workers.

A landmark of Portland cinema history, The Clinton Street Theater is one of the oldest operating movie houses in the United States. The Clinton Street Theater has always been about community, calling itself the “Clubhouse of the Portland Anarchist Jurisdiction”—a place to come and be with friends and family; a place where strangers are only friends you haven’t met yet.
