Peace and Justice Works (PJW) and Portland Copwatch (PCW) are inviting the community to celebrate 25 years of working for a better world. Join us on Saturday, July 22 at 6 PM at the Unite Oregon office (700 N Killingsworth at Borthwick) for a fun and educational "stuff-raising" event. We will we watching videos of various PJW events through the years. Admission is anything from our wish list ( http://www.portlandcopwatch.org/wishlist.html)-- from a paper clip to a used computer, though cash and checks are also welcome. We'll have refreshments, memorabilia, information about PJW and PCW's first 25 years, and items for sale.
PJW is dedicated to promoting non-violent conflict resolution on local, national and international levels. Its project group Portland Copwatch promotes police accountability through citizen action. The Iraq Affinity Group focuses on US policy in the "Middle East" and elsewhere. Founded in 1992 as a chapter of Oregon PeaceWorks, PJW became its own non-profit organization in 1996.
Video clips for the event are being provided by Flying Focus Video Collective, which itself turned 25 in 2016.
The event will be preceded (from 4:00-5:30 PM) by PJW's summer quarterly meeting discussing current and upcoming program activities.
