The Faith- Labor Committee of Portland Jobs with Justice is made up of labor and faith activists and leaders who come together to build sustained relationships between the labor community, and individuals and congregations in the faith community. Based on these relationships, the committee works to develop and implement outreach strategies to facilitate the faith community showing up in support of the struggles of working people in our city.

We meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 12:00pm at the Portland Jobs with Justice office located at 1500 NE Irving Street, Suite 585.

15th Annual Faith-Labor Breakfast

Thank you to everyone in the community who came out and helped make our 15th Annual Faith-Labor Breakfast a huge success this year! Faith and labor leaders and activists from around the Portland area gathered to listen to and discuss how we can show up in solidarity for marginalized populations of working people who are at greater risk in the current political environment. And we were honored to awarded the 3rd Annual Lucinda Tate Activist Award to Augustana Lutheran Church, for the amazing work their congregation has done leading the Oregon Sanctuary Movement.
