Spirit Led Justice Alliance *Action Alert* 6/25/19
With the Oregon Senate Republican walkout continuing this week, we are focusing your attention on two incredibly important actions that you can take right here in Portland.
You will be hearing more from us about police accountability in the city in the months to come, but for this week we have an invitation to march and rally to demand justice in Patrick Kimmon’s murder.
We are also pleased to share a positive economic action you can take to support farm workers. So often economic actions involve boycotting and saying no to discrimination or union busting or other harmful corporate behavior. Join the Farmworker campaign through Costco to support agriculture done right!
Thanks so much for all you do. In the Spirit of Justice

PNWFC Family Member Letha Winston’s demand to Mayor Wheeler: Release the entire unedited video of Patrick Kimmon’s murder!
It is time to prove that people of faith care enough to show up and demand justice when police kill innocent Black men. Join this rally in downtown Portland marching from the Mayor’s office to Multnomah County Courthouse to the Justice Center.
