The December SURJ quarterly gathering is right around the corner! We hope that you will join us from 2-5pm on Sunday, December 2nd at a location TBD. Please reply to this email with childcare and access needs.
This meeting we will be making decisions regarding the 2019 collective action plan. The collective action plan is a unifying theme that will guide our work as a SURJ chapter. Each action group/work team will be particularizing the action plan to their organizational partners and group focus. More on the collective action plan here!
In our September quarterly membership we made a decision to further explore two topics: economic justice and de-militarization. In the October and November monthly meetings we have been digging into what potential campaign work could look like. Notes from the October and November meetings available here.
Missed the last few meetings? Feeling confused about the collective action plan? Join us for a pre-meeting catch up session at 1pm. For folks new to SURJ Portland, there will also be a new member orientation at 1pm.
In our quarterly membership meetings, we will be using a spokescouncil model to make decisions. Be sure and take a look at the resources below for more information on the voting process:
