International Human Rights Day is observed by the international community every year on December 10 to commemorate the United Nations General Assembly adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. It is a day of solidarity and remembrance of people all over the world who continue to be oppressed by human rights violations - those who are systematically marginalized, disappeared, imprisoned, and killed. In July 2016, members of PortlandCHRP - Portland Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines, GABRIELA Portland, Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice, Portland Rising Tide, Students United for Palestinian Equal Rights (SUPER), and community members participated in exposure and solidarity trips hosted by the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines. In the wake of our recent International Solidarity Mission (ISM) in the Philippines and the continuing work of our allies, we call all justice loving people and organizations in Portland to rise together with us on December 10 for a solidarity mission reportback and cultural night, featuring solidarity statements and cultural presentations from organizational representatives and community members.

Vermont Workers Center Executive Director James Haslam to talk about How to Make Oregon the next state with Single Payer Universal Health Care
Friday, June 6, 2014 from 6-8:30pm
Two years ago three representatives from the Vermont Workers Center came to Oregon and appeared around the state. They had a crowd of 300 people at PCC Cascade and a groundswell of enthusiasm was generated for health care reform activism. The Health Care Committee of Jobs with Justice grew to hosting 40 attendees at monthly meetings. Many of them participated in the establishment of Health Care for All Oregon which is now a statewide organization with chapters in several towns across the state which recently hosted the tour by Gerald Friedman. It has over 90 member organizations and we are growing in strength. But we have a long way to realize our dream of doing what Vermont did. James Haslam will be in Portland to cheer us on with some advise and inspiration. He will appear at 7PM. But please come early by 6:00 to have a preliminary discussion on how to frame our questions and make the best of his appearance. Sen. Michael Dembrow will join James on the podium. http://www.facebook.com/events/1387029184871847/
