    Stop the Bleed

    A team of leading trauma surgeons, including Martin A. Schreiber, M.D., professor and chief of Trauma, Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery at OHSU, is providing a series of free 1-hour community trainings designed to teach private citizens how to respond to victims of a traumatic event. Schreiber and colleagues will provide hands-on training in tourniquet application, applying direct pressure and packing an injury using hemostatic gauze.

    Trainers will be presenting a 30-minute presentation that walks the participants through the concepts of bleeding control. These principles are taken from the lessons learned in recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. After the presentation, participants will break into groups and practice hands-on bleeding control techniques. These will be taught using real CAT (Combat Application Tourniquets) and plastic models that simulate a real victim’s leg.

    Participants will have to demonstrate appropriate application of the tourniquet and effective wound packing on the model to obtain their certificate of completion.

    Trainings are free, but registration is required.

    Stop the Bleed is a national campaign developed by the American College of Surgeons in partnership with the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians to teach bystanders to take immediate actions to stop and control bleeding.

    Participants will receive a certificate of completion and can purchase personal bleeding control kits at controlbleedingkits.com for $69-$99 (not required for the training).

    All participants are recommended to be physically able with the ability to lift 25-35lbs.

    School of Public Health Movie Night: A Day's Work (workplace safety)

    Join the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health and the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences for the first Public Health Movie Night.

    What happened to Day Davis? 90 minutes before he was killed on his first day of work as a temporary employee, Day texted a picture of himself to his girlfriend, excited for their future. Day's sister now searches for answers as an investigation reveals a hidden epidemic of injury and death on the job threatening millions of American workers.

    We start with a brief introduction by Dave DeSario - Executive Producer of A Day's Work. The 54-minute film will be followed by a panel discussion on workplace safety, public policy, and workers' rights, connecting the film to local issues and action.

    Audience members will have an opportunity to engage with community leaders, local professionals, OHSU-PSU School of Public Health faculty, and the film's executive producer. Popcorn and soft-drinks will be provided.

    The movie will be screened at the CLSB 1A001 Register now for this free event!

    Our Community, Our Cause - JwJ 2017 Annual Dinner

    We are excited to invite you to our 2017 annual dinner — Our Community, Our Cause. For over a quarter of a century Portland Jobs with Justice has been a hub of support for working people in our city. With your generous support, we continue to grow and deepen our relationship to the struggles of working people. Our success together is only possible because of your support!

    In recognition of the fact that September 30 marks of the end of the Yom Kippur Jewish holy day, dinner will not be served and the program will not begin until after sunset at 7pm.

    As the highlight of an exciting program, we are honored and thrilled to welcome Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant as our keynote speaker at this year’s annual dinner!

    Councilmember Sawant is known for being a leader in the first successful campaign for a citywide $15 minimum wage, and has used her platform on Seattle’s city council to be a tireless champion for workers rights, renters rights, and economic justice. Sawant is the first socialist to win a citywide election in Seattle in almost a century.

    There are many ways to support our Annual dinner, ranging from sponsorships, digital ad purchases, individual tickets, in-kind donations as well as a donation of your skills or time. Please feel free to contact Justin Norton-Kertson via email justin@jwjpdx.org or phone 971-242-8702.
