Global Justice

Welcome to the Global Justice Committee page

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 mobilizing resistance against imperialism and war in places like Iraq and Venezuela, and helping to expose the lies of multinational corporations like Nike for their poor treatment of workers.

Confronting COVID-19: Cuba’s Approach to Healthcare for All

Cuba spends only 4% of the dollars per patient as the US health system. Yet the Covid-19 case rate is 50+ times higher in the U.S. than in Cuba, and the death rate is 85+ times higher. What lessons can we in the U.S. learn from Cuba’s remarkable system of health care for all?

Join this webinar to hear from a doctor at Cuba’s renown Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) and for a filmmaker-guided screening of Cuba & COVID-19. Hosted by Bay Area Saving Lives.
