The Multnomah County District Attorney impacts the quality of life and safety of the people in our county. A good DA will move us a little closer to justice for all. For instance, the DA gets to decide whether or not to:
Use restorative justice
Focus on serious crimes that impact community safety, rather than prosecuting people for minor non-violent law-breaking, like protesters disobeying an order
Require cash bail from people who can’t afford to post it
Use alternatives to incarceration when available and appropriate

Portland teachers are fighting for Safe, Sustainable and Equitable Schools for Every Student. To win this union contract will take all of us. Pledge your solidarity and sign up to take action:
Leaflet parents dropping off/picking up their kids at your neighborhood school, write and call school board members, put up a window sign, distribute window stickers to local businesses, distribute lawn signs, petition and leaflet at local events and schools, pass a resolution in your union or organization, phone bank residents, door knock with a teacher, show up at school board meetings, attend rallies and marches, and, if teachers are forced to strike, honor and support their picket line.
