2016 SJF Oregon Summit


location Curious Comedy Theater | 11 AM-4 PM Saturday 16 April 2016 (PST)

SJF's Fired-Up Movement Momentum

Social Justice Fund NW hosts this year's Oregon Summit with the simultaneous launch of the "Fight the Far Right" Momentum Giving Project.

Spend a glorious afternoon in social justice community learning about grassroots organizations in our five-state region that are resisting right-wing backlash.

We've seen and been part of enormous steps toward social justice that were unimaginable 10, or even 5 years ago. Victories in the courts, in halls of power, and in the streets are opening the flood gates for real and positive change.

Join us as this gathering fuels the movement and support the momentum toward liberation. We will fire-up audience participation and see where it takes us.

Sign up for Open Mic, please register for (free) lunch, and get ready to share your voice, your heart & your mind!

Location: Curious Comedy Theater: 5225 NE Martin Luther King Blvd. Portland, OR 97211

Access: Wheelchair accessible / Gender Neutral bathrooms Accessible by buses 6 & 72 - see TriMet.org for stops and schedules

This event is FREE and open to the public. Donations encouraged and go to the "Fight the Far Right" Momentum Giving Project. Our goal is to raise $5000.
