Getting Beyond Barriers – Challenging Barriers to Re-entry after Prison
Employment, housing, education, debt – people returning home from prison face many challenges in these and other areas. Join PSJ for its monthly Community Education and Discussion night when we talk about how people are organizing to decrease the barriers people face after prison. We’ll hear from formerly incarcerated people about their experiences with re-entry about the work they are doing to decrease the barriers people face after prison.

Getting Beyond Barriers
Wednesday, August 6, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Partnership for Safety and Justice, 825 NE 20th, Suite 250, Portland
Please email Caylor to let her know you’ll be there.

Take Action on Action Day – Defeat the Mandatory Minimum Measure!

PSJ and the Bus Project are headed to Salem on August 10 to talk to people about the mandatory minimum measure.  If you take only one action this summer to stop Mandatory Minimum Madness, THIS IS IT! We have a chance to make a real difference in our state in one day, and we don’t want you to miss out. All training will be provided, and we will match you up with an experienced canvasser.

Action Day
August 10, Salem

If you’re in Portland, join us for a ride to Salem on the Bus Project’s bus. For all our friends and members in the Willamette Valley, we’ll send you directions to our meeting place in Salem. Just email Rachel or give her a call at 503-335-8449 and she’ll send you directions to Portland and Salem meeting places.

Please let us count on you to come out on August 10th. It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be educational, and it’s going to make a real impact for this campaign and future PSJ work. Please help us meet our goal and reach 2000 voters to defeat the Mandatory Minimum Measure!
