Occupy Portland’s Labor Solidarity Committee invites all people to help us organize a Community Assembly to create a people’s budget that works for all of us. We're meeting this Saturday at Noon at the 1st Unitarian Church (1211 SW Main) to discuss strategic outreach for labor, community groups, and Occupy, while also talking about visions of how the Community Assembly itself could be organized, amongst other things.
Our intention is to launch a campaign and action plan to achieve a city budget and spending proposal that addresses the primary concerns we all share, such as jobs, no cuts to services, housing, transportation, health care, education, etc. We plan to outreach to labor unions, community groups, Occupy, and the broader 99% to join us in a fightback against the planned city cuts to essential services, while putting forth a budget for the 99%.
