SURJ PDX Community Meetings

Join us for periodic community-wide meetings. Be on the lookout for email invitations to meetings where we will share tools, resources, and ways of engaging in response to the uprisings following the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. We’ll work together to hold each other accountable in keeping up the momentum for significant changes, working toward police and prison abolition and Black liberation. 

Here’s a link to our SURJ PDX community-wide gathering from June 20, 2020 (Zoom video recording). We also hold community-wide meetings to make SURJ-PDX-community-wide decisions.

To receive notices about our community meetings, please request that you be added to our mailing list: surjpdxcalendar@gmail.com
