Portland to Vancouver March for Good Jobs, No Cuts

Portland and Vancouver Rising, October 22, 11 a.m.

Portland Rising and Vancouver Rising connects struggle on both sides of the river

Jobs with Justice is a national campaign for workers’ rights. Working through coalitions of labor, community, religious and constituency organizations, Jobs with Justice is fighting for workers’ rights and economic justice.

Many have participated in powerful Portland Rising events on April 16th and June 30th. This time it will be Portland Rising AND Vancouver Rising as we connect struggles on the two sides of the river.

In addition to supporting union campaigns, we will also be sending a message to Senator Patty Murray, co-chair of the Congressional "Super-Committee," which is poised to make cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, that these programs should not be cut one cent!

Call Senator Patty Murray co-chair of this committee to say "No cuts to the safety net!" 360-696-7797
