About us: Portland Jobs with Justice has a long history of global justice and international solidarity work ranging from organizing caravans to the 1999 World Trade Organization protests in Seattle and supporting striking GM workers in Colombia, to exposing the lies of multinational corporations like Nike for their poor treatment of workers. Currently, the committee is actively supporting campaigns to uplift the welfare and working conditions of global seafarers, mobilizing in support of the “TRIPS” Waiver to expand global access to vaccines, and supporting Honduras solidarity efforts.
On the last day of the UN General Assembly, JwJ, Oregon Fair Trade Campaign, and the community mobilized to Senator Ron Wyden’s office at the eastside federal complex, with a message: The Portland community is demanding Global Vaccine Access Now! Lives are on the line and the U.S. government can do more to open up vaccine intellectual property and invest in manufacturing capacity around the world. The banner symbolizes that the U.S. is speeding down the COVID-19 highway and the federal government can and must do more to push the #TRIPSwaiver through the WTO!
