The Portland Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee Mixer and Discussion
Social Justice Action Center

Join us in this national call for action! Enjoy a potluck in the park located across the park from SJAC, followed by special guests who will discuss incarceration and their experiences in the federal prison system (and its potential for abolition!)

The Portland Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee has been around for over a year now and started gaining momentum around the September 9th nationwide Prisoner led strikes and disruption. Since then weve continued to build and want you, your friends and family to come celebrate with us. August 19th is also a special date for the million Prisoner march taking place on the same day in Washington D.C. We plan on having light refreshments and a few special guests. Join us for a evening of fun and great discussion.
