announcements - "what can we do?"

To be aware of all the problems facing the world can be empowering and liberating. Yet at times, this awareness seems a burden because with so many issues it can be difficult to know where to put one's energy. This page is meant to be a resource for all of us who want to know "what we can do", or "where can we help", or "how can I become more involved". Whether you want to attend a benefit or other event to become more educated or entertained, learn more about upcoming marches, demonstrations, or other actions, find reasons and ways to contact a government or corporate representative, join a collective which shares your interests, go to a local meeting for an organization, help out other members of the community, or to simply look for inspiration for your own ideas we hope that we will all be able to find that information here.

Friday November 11th 2016 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
Social Justice Action Center
400 SE 12th Avenue Portland, Oregon 97214


Join us next Friday for a community fundraiser to help local folks get out and support Standing Rock! Several people who live in the Portland area will be taking a caravan the next day (Nov. 12th) to head out there. We will have speakers, political education, some film clips and potluck! The way the state is responding is disgusting and unacceptable! But it's typical for imperialist/colonial/settler counterinsurgency tactics! We need to show that we can fight and that we can build a movement! This is a fundraiser so please bring what you can to support the folks that are heading out! This will be an open potluck so everyone is encouraged to share something.

This is a Fundraiser for Standing Rock
