Steering Committee

The Steering Committee meets on the first Monday of every month from 5:30pm to 7:00pm at the Portland Jobs with Justice office located at 1500 NE Irving Street, suite 585 in Portland, Oregon. This meeting is open to the public and our membership. At this meeting we discuss and vote on supporting, endorsing, and organizing events that fit into the mission of Jobs with Justice. It is also a great way to make announcements to our membership and meet those involved with the important work of labor-community organizing.
