Portland January Action Team Meeting January 9, 2012

Posted by FairSentencing in : Current News , trackback

The Partnership for Safety and Justice will be holding their next Portland Action Team Meeting on Monday, January 9th! These meetings are a chance for members and activists to get together and build community while enhancing their advocacy skills.

We’ll be going over some significant changes at PSJ that have resulted from our strategic planning, as well as talking about our recent youth justice victory. We’ll also be discussing our plans for the upcoming legislative session in February, because we’ll the help of our members soon!

The Commission on Public Safety delivered their report on sentencing to Governor Kitzhaber on December 29th. The recommendations could mean big changes for Oregon’s criminal justice system, and we’ll weigh in with our thoughts. We’ll also be asking you to participate in an activity that has worked well for our allies – calling the state legislature during our meeting to leave messages about the importance of the Commission’s findings. Members will be given some talking points, but please come prepared by looking up your representatives so that you know who to call beforehand. If you have time, take a look at the report itself.

Please contact Naivasha if you’re interested in attending!
