Night Strike is a unique opportunity for people to gather under the Burnside Bridge on the park side of Naito Parkway every Thursday night and love people because people matter. It’s an opportunity for members of Portland’s homeless community to hang out, enjoy a hot meal, receive a free hair cut, shave, have their feet washed and have their old shoes/clothes/sleeping bags replaced. It is also a chance for you to come down and share in the experience, help serve the needs of the homeless in our community, and more importantly, invest in lives and build relationships with the people you meet.
When and Where: We meet *every Thursday night at 7:00pm at Liberation Street Church for orientation and preparation. We then transition together to the site at 7:50pm. We are usually done and cleaned up between 10:00 and 10:30pm. The best place to park is in the parking lot between the Salvation Army mission and the MAX line on Ankeny St. Parking there costs $2 for the evening. Street parking free after 7pm.

And on the 12th day of every month: Keatin Otis Vigil 6pm NE 6th and NE Halsey - Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police over five years ago, May 12, 2010. The police admitted they stopped him for "looking like a gangster." They shot him 23 times after tazing him while he sat in the driver's seat. Later police said Keaton had a gun, but have yet to produce it. Keaton's father Fred Bryant held a monthly vigil on the 12th of every month since his son's murder on the spot where Keaton's life was taken. Fred Bryant did this for over three years, fighting for justice for his son, every single month in the rain, the dark, the heat, the snow. Fred Bryant passed away October 29, 2013. His family and community have committed to continuing the vigils every month on the 12th, until justice is achieved for Keaton, for Fred, for our whole community. Please join that struggle this month and help to spread the word. #BlackLivesMatter #Every28Hours FB page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Justice-For-Keaton-Otis/127054844033835?ref=ts&fref=ts
