Truffles are a treasure here in the Pacific Northwest and dogs, I would like to argue, are a treasure world wide. Come enjoy both of those wonders at The Joriad North American Truffle Dog Championship. The fourth annual competition takes place this year on Thursday, Jan. 25, a day before the Oregon Truffle Festival kicks off, which takes place on Jan. 26-28 in Eugene and the surrounding area. Competitor registration is full, so unfortunately it’s too late to register your pup, but the public is welcome to come watch talented truffle-hunting dogs. The event “begins in the morning with a series of qualifying events where spectators can cheer on the teams as they race to search for hidden truffle-scented targets,” according to the Oregon Truffle Festival’s website. Then, at the end of the events, finalists will be announced. There will then be a field trial in the afternoon, not open to the public, in which the finalists will go out into nature and attempt to find the real deal. Check out more Oregon Truffle Festival events happening this month and next at oregontrufflefestival.org.

The Joriad North American Truffle Dog Championship is 9 am to noon on Thursday, Jan. 25, at the Lane County Fairgrounds Large Animal Arena (796 W. 13th Avenue). It’s $12 in advance and $15 at the door. — Meerah Powell

The second Annual Women’s March for Action celebrates the legacy of the first Women’s March, inviting all women, femmes, and allies to join the rally. Indivisible Eugene helped organize the local Women’s March in Eugene last year with 7,000 protesters attending, and is a major organizer of this year’s event as well. This year’s event will focus on the launch of #PowerToThePolls. According to powertothepolls.com, “The national voter registration tour will target swing states to register new voters, engage impacted communities, harness our collective energy to advocate for policies and candidates that reflect our values, and collaborate with our partners to elect more women and progressives candidates to office.” Eugene’s organizers say they will encourage participants to find a cause that resonates with them the most, and provide support within the community to help find solutions and make a change locally. Speakers for the rally include Congressman Peter DeFazio; Nichi Masters Linder, field director for Planned Parenthood and More Power; the NAACP Lane County Youth Council Members, President Kai Isaia and NAACP Lane County Program Coordinator Brittany Judson. The rally ends with a concert at Whirled Pies, including performances by Soromundi, Rise! Dance! Resist!, Raging Grannies and Cross Current. Organizers anticipate approximately 3,000 people to attend this year’s event.

Indivisible Eugene’s second Annual Women’s March for Action is 1-3:30 pm Saturday. It starts with a rally at the Federal Court House, 405 E. 8th Avenue, and the march begins at 1:30 pm, heading north on Mill and ending at Whirled Pies, where entertainment will perform until 4 pm. — Kyla Ramsey

Political leader and former Ohio State Sen. Nina Turner will speak at Lane Community College as part of the college’s 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. celebration. Turner is an advocate for women’s reproductive rights, eliminating wage inequality and voting rights — and the president of Our Revolution, an organization founded by Bernie Sanders to help progressive leaders and create political awareness. Turner has appeared on “Meet the Press,” “The Bill Maher Show,” and “Democracy Now,” and she’s also a political commentator for CNN. 

The MLK Community Celebration begins 5:30 pm Wednesday, Jan. 17, at the LCC main campus. FREE. 

Further north, Walidah Imarisha, scholar, activist and author, will speak at Western Oregon Unversity’s MLK Day Celebration. “Imarisha has presented statewide as a public scholar with Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project on topics such as Oregon Black history, alternatives to incarceration and the history of hip hop. Her nonfiction book Angels with Dirty Faces: Three Stories of Crime, Prison, and Redemption won a 2017 Oregon Book Award,” according to a WOU press release. 

Imarisha gives the keynote speech at the MLK dinner at 6 pm on Wednesday, Jan. 17, at WOU in Monmouth; tickets are $3 for students and $5 for the public and include dinner. 

To celebrate the 82nd anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth, the Eugene/Springfield chapter of the NAACP leads a community march on Monday, Jan. 15. The event begins 9 am by the north gate of Autzen Stadium with speeches and music, and the march begins at 10 am. The event is kid friendly and wraps up with a community program at The Shedd from 11 am until 12 pm. 

For other MLK Day events and volunteer opportunities, see our What’s Happening calendar.  — Corinne Boyer
