Visit the JWJ Measure 97 page to get in the streets and stop corporate greed!

There’s a lot of things to hate about Wells Fargo….and here’s another one: they are part of the 10 million dollar corporate campaign trying to stop Measure 97. Let’s hold big and out-of-state corporations accountable. Vote Yes on 97.

Portland Jobs with Justice is proud to say Yes on 97!  Measure 97 is a proposal to better fund Oregon’s schools, health care and senior services by increasing the minimum tax for large and out-of-state corporations with more than $25 million in annual Oregon sales.


Emergency Response for Unions and Community Organizations to support Just and Humane Resolution for Residents of the Springwater Corridor

SpringwaterTrailSE45

 We at Portland Jobs with Justice know that unions, labor organizations, community organizations, faith leaders, and student organizations are central to the fabric of progressive society and movements in the 21st century, and that together we can uphold human rights and dignity for workers, for economic justice, and for racial justice and gender justice in Portland and beyond.

In the face of Mayor Hales’ dramatic about-face from the nationally recognized “safe-sleep” policy passed earlier this year, to announcing sweeps of houseless people as soon as August 1 (now delayed to September 1 in the face of organizing and a potential lawsuit), we felt that as residents of the neighborhoods (some of us live in Foster-Powell and Lents, among other neighborhoods) nearby, and people involved in making our city, region, state, nation, and world a better place, it is important and urgent to urge for humane solutions and resolution to the conflict created by the impending sweeps.

We humbly offer this simple toolkit for unions and locals, and other community and student organizations who want to support the resident- and community-led efforts of houseless people camping along the Springwater Corridor to live with justice, dignity, and safety. We hope this can be easily adapted to serve the needs of other organizations such as faith organizations if someone wishes to take on those tasks.

We encourage you to use this toolkit at your organization.
