OregonSOS - Fight High Rents & Low Wages

Oregon State Capitol
900 Court St NE, Salem, Oregon 97301
#OregonSOS Oregonians are sinking,
and it's time to do something about it!

Join us as we build a tent city on the steps of the capitol building to highlight and call for a housing state of emergency in Oregon. Demand solutions to this state of emergency such as rent control and a moritorium on no-cause evictions, a statewide $15 and local control of minimum wage laws, and an end to ODOT sweeps of houseless camps.

Sponsored by Right to Survive, Right 2 Dream Too, 15 Now PDX, Don't Shoot PDX, Portland Rising Tide, Jobs with Justice, PSUSU, Hazelnut Grove, International Socialist Organization, and more.
