There has been a lot of beautiful and much needed solidarity going around since last year’s election of an administration that poses a real and serious threat to our communities.
Solidarity and showing up for other people’s struggles is the foundation of JwJ, and we believe that the upsurge in solidarity we’ve seen recently is something worth celebrating. Building a movement to strengthen and defend our community against reactionary forces is long and hard work, and we all need to be sure we are taking time to relax, replenish, and have some fun so we can continue to be effective in our work. So let’s celebrate!
Mark your calendars for the Summer Solidarity Celebration we are throwing to celebrate the recent upsurge in solidarity action we have witnessed in Portland since the 2016 election, and to welcome our new Executive Director! The Celebration will take place the evening of June 23rd from 7-9pm at the Ecotrust building in downtown Portland.
