“Justice for Trayvon” National Day of Action Vigils in 100 Cities

Please click the link above to RSVP to the facebook event

A call has been put out for a National Day of Action by Al Sharpton concerning the Department of Justice taking up the case, so Campaign to End the New Jim Crow is organizing one here in Portland.
SATURDAY 2PM @ Federal Courthouse located at 1000 SW 3rd Ave (SW 3rd ave and SW Main st)

We are doing 2pm instead of 12pm because we usually meet at that time, so to avoid too much confusion and to make sure we get some work done we decided to call it for 2pm instead.

  1. Have you contacted the NAN about organizing the rally?
    If not, do you know if another organization will be able to start at noon?

  2. You should announce it as at noon like the other rallies. Get at least some people to miss just ONE meeting to do this right.

  3. We chose to start the rally at 2pm because of our longstanding meeting time. We thought it was more important to make sure that a rally happens on Saturday allied with NAN’s call, than to make sure that the rally timed up at noon.
    At our meeting on Saturday at 11 we will be discussing next steps to fight the New Jim Crow–the system that contributed to Trayvon’s death–in Portland. Part of this work is demonstrating but part of it is also continuing the slow work for justice for Portland’s own Trayvon Martins.
