The Social Justice and Community Outreach Committee is Looking for More Members!

This committee keeps things real and serves to be a source of intersectional support and collaboration for PAT members and the community. If you have a heart for social justice and are action oriented, you will feel right at home with this committee. Come once or come every month- we’ll be happy to see you either way! Here is the link to sign up.

Mark your calendar for December 15th, 4:30-6:30 PM! At this SJCO meeting we will:

  • Explore fresh ideas for organizing for social justice issues
  • Revisit the Divest Oregon coalition
  • Begin planning for Black Lives Matter Week of Action and Black History Month
  • Continue to advocate for PAT SPED educators

At our November 3 meeting, we had a presentation from Divest Oregon. This coalition is urging the Oregon State Treasury (Oregon Investment Council and Oregon Treasurer Tobias Read) to: commit to no new investments in fossil fuels and to phase out current fossil fuel investments over time. We encourage interested members to look into this; if you have specific questions about Divest Oregon, please enter them in this google form. We will get answers for you as soon as we can!
