November 4 March to Defend Democracy in Portland
In alliance with communities across the country, OSTPDX has joined with more than 40 local community organizations to cosponsor a mass mobilization the day after the election, Wednesday, November 4. The purpose of the family-friendly march is to stand up for Black lives and protect the integrity of the 2020 election. The organizing coalition is committed to nonviolence and to that end has enlisted security trained in de-escalation techniques to accompany the march. The afternoon event will begin at Revolution Hall at 3:00pm and continue on to Waterfront Park, where a rally will begin at 5:00pm. The return march to Revolution Hall will conclude by 8:00pm. If you’re interested in helping out with the mobilization, volunteers are needed. Contact Lynn Youngbar for details at email@example.com. To learn more, join the movement, and sign the defend democracy pledge, visit the Defend Democracy Coalition website.
