They say all politics is local and this week that saying is more true than ever here in Portland. It is time for people of faith and good will to show up to support our houseless population and ensure that those feeding our neighbors in Director Park can do so without constraint.

Thanks in advance for joining us in advancing immigrant justice, assessing a path forward for safety and peace that doesn’t center police and advocating for health care for all.
