Welcome to the Faith and Labor page.



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.

Our theme this year is “Showing Up for Each Other: Faith in Action.” In the wake of the 2016 election, many communities are justifiably concerned for their health and safety. This year’s theme highlights the stories of marginalized communities and the actions we can take together to create positive solutions to show up for each other and protect and strengthen our community!

Cost for the breakfast is $15, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

There is plenty of on-street parking, but we encourage you to carpool, bike, or take public transportation (bus lines 6, 8 and 72 serve the area).
