JAN  15

WE will stand on our SOAPBOX and WE will DEMAND JUSTICE.

Friday, January 15     at 8 AM - 2 PM in PST

Join us as we continue to use non-violent direct action and community engagement to break the system of discrimination and poverty by challenging government and social agencies to audit and reconstruct more equitable programming.

We #Standupfightback against Injustice.

WE are taking the streets on Martin Luther King Jr.'s day of birth.
WE celebrate and continue his efforts by standing TOGETHER through
the physical OCCUPATION of intersections in downtown Portland.
WE are coming together to visually express the importance of intersectionality in the fight for Justice. WE take a stand against all
legalized violence and oppression!

"One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws"- MLK Jr.

This is a collaboration of organizations, movements, and individuals that work in our communities to engage and resist legalized oppression. We come together on this day to synergize our efforts into a larger community movement of CHANGE MAKERS. We come together on this day to share the work we are doing, and will continue to do as long as there is systemic oppression.

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" - MLK Jr.

Join the movement! Share the work and effort of your organization and community through visual occupation, conversations with passerby's, and by sharing ways in which we are all connected. Let's lift our fights for justice, hand in hand.

Here is the GROWING list of community organizations, new and timeless, that will be occupying their right to SOAPBOX in SOLIDARITY for SOCIAL JUSTICE.

Please MESSAGE the page for ways YOU and the organization you are a part of can be involved!

NOV 19
Thursday, November 19 at 5:00pm
1220 SW 3rd Avenue Portland, OR 97204-2825

 We invite you to join Voz and the Portland Immigrants Rights Coalition (PIRC) to observe the anniversary of presidential announcement on immigration with a Vigil to Demand Relief for Targeted Families. This is part of #Not1More National Week of Action.

In what should be a moment to mark the impact of relief for nearly half the undocumented community, instead will be a day of protest in multiple cities calling on the President to address the rogue enforcement and inhumane impact of unjust deportations that have continued since his November 20th, 2014 executive action on immigration.





Build network of Voz

Grow relationships between day laborers and community members

Have fun!
