CW: Transphobia, anti-Blackness, extreme violence, death
On May 27, 2019, Titi Gulley, a Queer, Black trans fem was found hanging in a park in Portland, Oregon. Her family were informed of her death via Facebook. Portland Police closed the case in less than twenty four hours, they ruled it as a suicide, refused to let the family see their loved one for nearly two weeks, and refused to perform an autopsy. The family wants everyone to know that this was a murder. This was a lynching in white supremacist Portland, Oregon. This has received very little media coverage so please share and donate to the family’s gofundme.

Portland Rising, a committee of Portland Jobs with Justice, is excited to announce its second Labor History for Labor Activists class!
The class will meet six consecutive Monday evenings, from 7-9 pm, starting April 1, 2019, and will explore US labor history through the choices and dilemmas faced by past labor activists with the aim of strengthening our current understandings and practice.
The class size will be limited to 15 in order to promote active engagement among participants and with the material. Therefore, we ask those who wish to take the class to complete a short, on-line application. Class selection will begin February 17, 2019, and end once the class limit is reached.

Every holiday season Portland Jobs with Justice comes together to celebrate our community, and to vote for the winner of the not-so-coveted annual Scrooge of the Year Award.
This award is voted on by the community (that’s you!) and is given each year to a bad boss, a politician, a corporation, or some other deserving institution that has been particularly nasty in the past year.
We here at Portland Jobs with Justice think it’s important that the voting process for this award is true to our American democratic system. That’s right – this election is for sale! You may purchase as many votes as you wish for as many different candidates as you wish to let your voice be heard in deciding the worst #badboss in town.
Admission tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Admission tickets come with 20 free votes. Additional votes can be bought online or at the party for $1 per vote.
Votes will be available to purchase online starting on November 5th at 6pm after the nominees have been announced.
Scrooge of the Year is an annual award the community (you!) vote on to award to the year's worst Portland-area player. It can be a corporation, a politician, or someone completely different.

It is with great sadness that Portland Jobs with Justice announces the passing of our long time compañero, Greg Margolis. We send love and blessings to Greg’s spirit as he moves on, and to his family, friends, and all the people whose lives he has touched.
