February Love Action Item Recap:
We were honored to attend Portland United Against Hate’s public vigil held on Valentine’s Day. We were proud to have 10 members of the Love Action Coalition in attendance – including our two youngest – with one member speaking at the event. The vigil was picked up by a few of our (trusted and valued) local news affiliates. We’ve included some links to the coverage below.
We at the Love Action Coalition are dedicated to working for equity, justice and inclusion. We invite you to unite with us as we work to put our Love in Action.
Love Action Items:
Feb. 14th – Showing up for Love: Portland United Against Hate Vigil
“Portland United Against mobilizes to improve reporting and tracking of hateful acts and support communities in need: A community initiated partnership of community organizations of color, neighborhood groups, and the City of Portland are building a rapid response network – Portland United Against Hate – that combines reporting and tracking of hateful acts and provides support and protection our communities need in this uncertain era.”
Feb. 17th – General Boycott & Strike!
On February 17th we will show Donald Trump and his cronies in Washington that our voices will be heard. No work will be done. No money will be spent. We will not support his corrupt government. We will STRIKE!!
Feb. 20th – We The People Marching United In Resistance
“Since Inauguration Day, the rights of too many have been threatened, attacked, or withheld. We are all stronger when we stand together in unity. Resistance to attacks on members of our community requires a strong, steady and collective voice. Be part of that collective voice, take action and march on Presidents’ Day in Oregon to show our unified resistance to injustice.”
Feb. 28th – Defend DACA Rally
“Milenio and Voz Hispana Cambio Comunitario Organizers, local activists and community members will rally for Immigrant Justice. We will call on elected officials at the city, state and national levels to protect DACA, stop deportations and the separation of families, to protect all immigrants, to welcome refugees and to oppose anti-immigrant efforts at the city and state level.”
March 4th – March Against Police Brutality
“On January 20th, 2017, Portland police opened fire on peaceful protesters, spraying them with pepper spray for standing and shooting people with rubber bullets as they yelled “peaceful protest.” We call everyone out to come join us to protest police brutality”
