Oregon Fair Trade Campaign invites folks in Portland to a Global Justice Committee meeting — a reboot of Portland Jobs with Justice’s regular global-justice-oriented organizing hub. Since this is a kind of relaunch, coming to this first meeting means joining an open discussion of what the group should take on. Trade will certainly be a focus. Work with us on this and other global-solidarity concerns!
Wed., February 28 from 7 to 9pm at 2249 E Burnside St.
