Say No to Censorship and War! (Jewish Voice for Peace)

Old Salt Marketplace
5027 Northeast 42nd Avenue
Portland, OR 97218, US (map)



A Letter-Writing Party with Portland JVP

Event Description: This Saturday, join the Portland chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace in demanding our elected representatives in the senate refuse a path toward censorship and war!

We'll be writing two letters. 1) We insist Senator Wyden end his sponsorship of SB 720, the Israel Anti-Boycott Act. This bill would criminalize American individuals and companies who use the non-violent Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) as a strategy to shed light on and oppose unjust policies toward Palestinians by Israel. You don't need to support BDS to see the danger of criminalizing political action and free speech. Let's defend our constitutional right to free speech and urge Senator Wyden to drop his sponsorship of this draconian bill!

2) We encourage Senators Merkely and Wyden not to follow Donald Trump's disastrous diplomatic breakdown and warmongering with Iran. Tell our senators: No new sanctions, and No legislating the end of the Iran deal!

Please join us in the Carver Room behind Old Salt Marketplace any time from 3-5 PM, and make your voice heard! Bring your friends and families, and get to know your local JVP team over a cup of hot apple cider and plenty of sweets 'n' snacks. Letter-writing supplies will be provided. All are welcome to attend!
