    Benefit Concert for Immigration Counseling Service (ICS)

    If you are concerned about the challenges immigrants face in our community, here is an opportunity for you to do something to help - something tangible, positive and fun! Please join us for an upcoming benefit concert for Immigration Counseling Service (ICS) to be held on Sunday, September 24, 2017, from 3:00 to 5:00 PM at the St. Andrew's Community Center. All donations received will directly support the critical work of ICS. Before the event, from 1:30 to 2:30 PM, ICS staff members will provide free information and advice to our immigrant community members seeking legal services, as well as members of the community interested in immigrant rights.

    For those who are able, a suggested donation of $20 will be made at the door, but no one will be turned away! Everyone is welcome and all contributions are valued and appreciated, regardless of the amount you can give.

    ICS is Oregon’s oldest non-profit legal services organization providing critical assistance to our local community’s immigrants, victims of human trafficking and unaccompanied children, to ensure their legal rights and representation. ICS was founded in 1978 by a longtime community advocate, Margaret Godfrey. Over the years, ICS has provided legal assistance to thousands of individuals in Oregon from over 90 countries around the world. Nearly 40 years later, ICS continues Margaret’s legacy, with a mission of strengthening Oregon’s communities by providing legal assistance to its most vulnerable members.

    Still Kickin', a local recreational band that includes two ICS board members - will perform their eclectic mix of folk, blues and rock music. Together for 13 years, this 7-piece band plays cover hits by The Beatles, Peter Paul and Mary, Bonnie Raitt, Alison Kraus, John Haitt, Dolly Parton, John Sebastian, the Everly Brothers, Steve Earle and many more. We guarantee their original interpretations and arrangements will cause your feet to tap and your spirits to lift!

    So join us for light refreshments and a good time for a good cause. You'll feel better for it.

    Faith & Why Unions Matter
    free

    Join the Portland Jobs with Justice Faith-Labor and Portland Rising Committees for a panel and discussion on why unions matter to people of faith.

    Panel members include:

    • Imam Muhammad Najieb of the Muslim Community Center of Portland
    • Diana Lobo, homecare worker & SEIU Local 503 member
    • Marty Hart-Landsberg, economics professor emeritus, Lewis & Clark College

    The last few decades have been marked by aggressive attempts to weaken if not actually destroy labor unions in order to roll back the gains that they have won for their members and the broader community. One consequence of these attacks is that families today are facing a world shaped by diminishing employment opportunities, ever more precarious working conditions, deteriorating social services and growing social divisions.

    With national "Right to Work" looming at the federal level, we have never needed to strengthen public understanding of and support for unions more than right now.

    Historically, faith leaders and fatih communities have played vital roles in important social movements. The same is true today. Pope Francis has called inequality "the root of social evil" and consistently defends workers against a profit-first mentality. Other faith traditions also have strong roots in justice for workers and the rights of families to just living conditions.

    Why do unions matter? Why do unions and social justice matter to people of faith? Why should we defend unions from attack? What can faith leaders and faith communities do to help strengthen local labor and social justice movements?

    Join us for a panel and discussion of these important questions. Light lunch will be served.
