Join us in speaking up for people ­focused transportation in Oregon. Oregon needs to adopt a transportation package that reflects the priorities of Oregonians. Safe routes for walking and bicycling and plenty of convenient transit options benefit Oregon communities. Our neighbors can get to their jobs, children can walk and bike safely to and from school, drivers face less congestion on the roads, and the air is easier to breathe. If quality transportation in Oregon is important to you, join us on September 23 in Salem for an important public hearing. We need to show lawmakers that this issue is important to us. ** After you RSVP here=> http://bit.ly/25HOGtj you will hear from organizers with more information. ** Thank you for helping us ensure Oregon is spending our money wisely on a modern transportation system that provides options to all of our community members!https://www.facebook.com/RenewOregon/events# https://www.facebook.com/events/851409781669887/

Community, faith, and labor leaders, low-wage workers, and allies rally, calling for State Legislature to pass a bill calling for a $15 minimum wage in Oregon. Workers in Portland and Multnomah County have already begun winning $15 through contract negotiations, and now community, faith and labor leaders, low-wage workers and their allies are coming together to call on the state legislature to make Oregon the first state to implement a $15 minimum wage. The rally will include speeches from low-wage workers, solidarity statements from labor and community groups, street theater, and musical performances. While workers in Seattle and San Francisco both won $15 minimum wages in 2014, studies including the National Low Income Housing Coalition's Out of Reach 2014, The Alliance for a Just Society's Job Gap Study, and the University of Washington's Self-Sufficiency Standard all show that a living wage in the State of Oregon is at least $15 per hour. “Over the years the cost of living has gone up in Oregon, but wages haven't kept pace,” said Justin Norton-Kertson, organizer for 15 Now PDX. “No one who works should live in poverty, and in Oregon you can't raise a family and stay out of poverty if you make less than $15 per hour.”

Rally for $15 and statewide gathering at the capitol building in Salem! To RSVP for rides visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bus-rides-to-rally-on-capitol-steps-tickets-14945572610 if your city isn't on the list send us a message and let us know! Portland buses leave promptly at 10:30 a.m. and will leave Salem at 3 p.m. The buses will leave Portland from the parking lot of SEIU Local 49, which is located at 3536 SE 26th Ave. The Fight for $15 is spreading across the country and Oregon is no exception. Employees at Home Forward (formerly The Portland Housing Authority), seasonal parks workers in Portland, and Multnomah County workers have all recently won $15 minimum wages, unions and community organizations around the state are endorsing a $15 minimum wage, and workers from Ashland to Portland to The Dalles are organizing to fight for $15 in Oregon! During the upcoming 2015 legislative session, Democrats will likely push to raise the state's minimum wage. They not only need to raise the minimum wage to a living wage of $15/hr, but they need to repeal the preemption law that prevents cities and counties in Oregon from raising the minimum wage locally. On behalf of 15 Now PDX and Portland Jobs with Justice, bills to repeal the intrusive and undemocratic preemption law and to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr in Oregon will be submitted for the 2015 legislative session. We can win, but we need the working class of Oregon to stand up with us and demand $15 Now! We call all on Oregon's working class to rally on the steps of the capitol building in Salem on January 24, 2015 from noon - 1pm in order to get out in front of this eventual legislative discussion and ensure that our state legislators know that Oregon's working class demands a real living wage of $15/hr! Rally at the capitol building at noon. Then head to the Ike Box at 1pm for the gathering where you can get plugged in with other minimum wage activists and 15 Now chapters from around the state. Join us and Fight for $15 for the whole State of Oregon! This rally is sponsored by 15 Now Oregon, 15 Now PDX, 15 Now Salem Oregon, 15 Now Southern Oregon, Jobs with Justice, KBOO Community Radio, OSEA, AFT - Oregon, Oregon AFL-CIO, PCUN, LiUNA Local 483, OEA, OFNHP, SEIU Local 49, SEIU Local 503, AFSCME Local 328, AFSCME Local 88, ILWU, PAT, OSALC, CWA Local 7901, AFM Local 99 http://www.facebook.com/events/1498828657062887/
