Spirit Led Justice Alliance *Action Alert* 1/24/20

Though 2020 is a short session for the Oregon legislature, there is no shortage of opportunities for our voices to be heard in Portland.

We invite you to make your views known next week about equity and justice in the Broadway Corridor Community Benefits Agreement, and about building a just world for those experiencing houselessness.

And the week after next we invite you to join Mom’s Demand Action, as the month-long legislative session begins in Salem.

As for this week, as we honor the life, vision, work and legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we invite you to honor the work of current Anti-Racist activists and organizations in our midst. We don’t send out fundraising appeals for organizations doing justice work, but we encourage you to identify one or two groups who are working on police accountability, prison reform or abolition, equity and specifically Anti-Black Racism and support them generously.

In Solidarity, on behalf of the Spirit Led Justice Alliance,
Rabbi Debra Kolodn
