No Ban No Wall -- Noon Rally
Terry Schrunk Plaza, 1200 SW 3rd

Unite Oregon unequivocally condemns President Donald Trump's recently-announced anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant executive orders as an assault on religious freedom and civil liberties, and a racist and unconstitutional attack on Muslims, immigrants, and refugees, who have been an original part of the vibrant fabric of the United States of America.

President Trump’s orders:

  • Approve the construction of a massive wall along the US-Mexico border with deficit funding;
  • Require local law enforcement collaboration with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) undermining local efforts to ensure trust in public safety;
  • Punitively subject anyone “facilitating the presence of” undocumented immigrants to a $1,500 fine or 6 months in jail;
  • Establish a racist ban on the admission of immigrants from 7 majority-Muslim countries: Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, and Sudan; and
  • Unconstitutionally deny legal permanent residents (“green card holders”) from the 7 above countries re-entry, dividing and harming children and families.

“These policies will not make us safer as a country, but rather they repeat the sad history of exclusion that colors America’s past,” said Unite Oregon’s Executive Director Kayse Jama, a U.S. citizen, originally from Somalia. “These actions are not only against the United States Constitution, but they also go against the American value of welcoming people escaping persecution.”

In 2015, anti-Muslim incidents spiked 67% and reach levels not seen since the 9/11 attacks, according to the FBI. But it is not just Muslims who are being targeted. In March 2016, a white Buddhist monk was attacked in Hood River and called a Muslim. Sikh Indian Americans have been assaulted and ridiculed at public events.

People of color--and especially immigrants, refugees, and Muslims--are particularly vulnerable right now. Trump’s actions seek to target a community that is already feeling fearful of their safety. Indeed, hours after Trump’s Muslim ban announcement, a mosque in Victoria, Texas was burned down.

Unite Oregon, joined by the One Oregon coalition, APANO, Causa, ACLU Oregon, Iraqi Society of Oreogn, Basic Rights Oregon, Jewish Voices for Peace, Jobs with Justice, Invisible Oregon, Oregon Coalition for Muslim Values, Oregon Muslim Citizen Alliance, and more, invites all people to show support for immigrants and refugees by attending a Noon rally downtown.

“No Ban, No Wall” Rally Monday, January 30th at Noon Terry Schrunk Plaza Downtown between 3rd and 4th Avenue on SW Madison

People from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, or Yemen who will arrive at Portland International Airport, or who have been detained already by Customs pursuant to President Trump’s executive order, are encouraged to reach out to the ACLU of Oregon at (971) 412-2258 or to be connected with a local volunteer attorney.


Led by people of color, immigrants and refugees, rural communities, and people experiencing poverty, Unite Oregon works across the state to build a unified intercultural movement for justice.

POSTPONED: Not in Portland ICE Resistance Protest

Portland International Airport


Donald Trump's new travel ban is in affect.

This ban means people from 6 Muslim majority country's will not be allowed into the US unless they have "close" business or family relationships, the ban describes family as parents, fiancés, spouses, children, son or daughter in law, siblings and step siblings but excludes grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, in-laws and grandchildren.

This ban is completely unnecessary, less than a quarter of terrorist attacks in the US are committed by people with Muslim backgrounds.

If we really wanted to keep terrorists out of this country we would ban white people.

Stand in solidarity with the people who will be banned from the US!

Start at the airport max stop.

Protest at Freedom Foundation Fundraiser - Oregon AFL-CIO
Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel

Join us to protest the Freedom Foundation’s fundraiser at the Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel. The event features Andy Puzder, the former fast food CEO who was nominated for Secretary of Labor, but was too extreme for either party in the U.S. Senate to stomach. Puzder withdrew his nomination after his anti-worker record and a video of his ex-wife making domestic abuse allegations became public. As the head of CKE Restaurants, which owns Hardee's and Carl's Jr., Puzder called his employees "the best of the worst," and workers have filed 22 complaints of wage theft and four sexual harassment claims.

Let’s show the Freedom Foundation and Andy Puzder that Oregon is a state with zero tolerance for bigotry, devaluing workers or domestic violence.

Action Alert: Pdx Renters Need RELO Permanent & Stronger!
Portland City Hall, 1221 SW 4th

On Wednesday, October 4th, City Council will be discussing the fate of Portland's HISTORIC Relocation Assistance ordiance. Even though it has saved thousands of people from becoming homless or bankrupt tyring to stay housed, RELO IS SET TO EXPIRE ON OCTOBER 7th!

City Council promised to make it permanent and consider changes to make it stronger and better after the legislature failed to take action for renters this year. But instead of giving renters peace of mind of a permanent policy, they plan to kick the can down the road for another 6 months.

Portland Tenants United successfully demanded Relocation Assistance as part of our campaign to #KeepPDXHoused. And while we're proud of Commissioner Eudaly's leadership on the issue, the rent is still too high, and tenants are still being price-gouged out of their housing with with 9.9% rent increases by landlords avoiding the 10% threshold for paying relocation.

Meanwhile, City Council thinks that tenants whose landlords own only one rental unit (which is very hard to verify) shouldn't have any protections from massive rent increases and no-cause evictions!

If you want to protect this historic and important ordinance, and build momentum to see it spread across the metro region and state, then we need to see you at city hall on Wednedsay!

If you'd be priced out by a 9.9% rent increase or have been victimized by a "small landlord", or if you are living outside Portland and know that your lawmakers won't lift a finger until they see leadership from Portland, then TESTIFY!

No matter what, call city council to end the exemptions so that ALL renters in Portland are protected by relocation.

Portland Tenants United is a growing tenants union dedicated to organizing tenants to take action to strengthen and enforce tenants rights and protections.

Anti-Choice Counter Protest at PSU
PSU Smith Center, 1825 SW Broadway

This week a sign promoting an event called "ABORTION IS GENOCIDE: FIND OUT WHY" disturbed the halls of Portland State University.

Join us on October 14th in countering this sexist and racist claim and demanding that any person with a uterus has a right to decide what they do with it.

We support reproductive justice for everyone, whether this looks like the right to have children and not be sterilized against your will, or the right to abort an unwanted fetus. We also recognize that while the right violently targets women in its effort to destroy all access to abortion, the fight for safe, accessible, and affordible abortions is not only a "women' issue." We know that medically sound and respectful abortions are especially unavailable for trans, intersex, bi-gendered, and gender non conforming people with uteruses, who are all seriously impacted by lack of access to abortion and so this also needs to be talked about and be part of our demand.

Come out Saturday to show PSU and the community that bigotry and sexism will not be tolerated! My body, my choice! Their body, their choice! Reproductive justice for all! Everyone has a right to bodily-autonomy! and Abortion is NOT genocide!

We will be making signs in the cafeteria at 4:30pm. The rally and speakout will begin at 5pm in the PSU Park Blocks!

Rally for Net Neutral Municipal Broadband
Portland City Hall, 1221 SW 4th Avenue

We are demanding the city immediately prioritize the development of a municipal broadband network.

Comcast and other large internet service providers have successfully lobbied to repeal net neutrality, sell information about what you do online, and prevent localities from properly regulating them. Municipal broadband is the last line of defense against internet service provider abuses which threaten freedom of information, digital equality, and democracy itself.

Municipal broadband is something many cities such as Tacoma, WA and Sandy, OR already have. In Portland we have been planning to build a municipal broadband network decades, now that our internet freedoms are under attack, it’s an idea whose time has come.

Event Schedule: 2:00 pm: Gather at City Hall 2:15 pm: Speakers 2:40 pm: Letter writing 2:50 pm: March 3:15 pm: Return to city hall for more speakers 4:00 pm: Wrap up and future plans

Screening of Submedia's Trouble: Episodes 1 & 2
Anarres Infoshop

Come catch up on subMedia's Trouble, a monthly documentary series on social resistance around the word. We will be screening and discussing the first two episodes of the series: Killing the Black Snake and Bash the Fash.

Episode 1: Killing the Black Snake: Behind the Scenes of the #NODAPL Struggle Explore beyond the mainstream narratives surrounding the Standing Rock encampment to get a better understanding of some of the camp’s overlooked dynamics, including serious disagreements over which tactics to use to best stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Episode 2: Bash the Fash Reactionary right-wing politics are on the rise in the west, and events are moving at a dangerous pace. In the wake of Trump’s ascendency to the US presidency, a toxic mix of white nationalism, Islamophobia, transphobia, violent misogyny, and anti-migrant hysteria is rapidly coalescing into a growing movement that has in turn sparked a surge of interest in anti-fascist organizing.

Screening of Submedia's Trouble: Episodes 3 & 4
Anarres Infoshop

Come catch up on subMedia's Trouble, a monthly documentary series on social resistance around the word. We will be screening and discussing two episodes from the series: #3 Refugees Welcome and #4 No Justice, Just Us.

Episode 3 - Refugees Welcome: Solidarity Across Borders As our world stands on the precipice of more destabilizing wars waged over declining resources, a deepening of structural economic inequality and the onset of cataclysmic climate change, dramatic movements of human populations are inevitable. What is not yet inevitable is how humanity will respond to this crisis. This episode features interviews with a number of individuals from around the world who are helping to chart a course for the future based on living practices of solidarity and mutual aid, and who are invested in tearing down the physical and imaginary borders that seek to keep us divided.

Episode 2: No Justice, Just Us: Movements Against State Repression The institutional pillars of domination and exploitation are well-entrenched in society, well-versed in manipulation, and utterly ruthless in their efforts to crush any and all threats to their legitimacy. Our future success and growth demands that we develop the capacity to anticipate the strategies and tactics that the state will use against us, build our own infrastructure to defend against these attacks, and incorporate meaningful solidarity and collective defense into all facets of our organizing. This episode of Trouble interviews a number of individuals engaged in legal defense and prisoner solidarity, and looks at some of the ways we can begin to build movements that are more resilient in the face of state repression.
