We are a multigenerational, multicultural group of activists who are diverse in gender and sexual orientation. We came together from varying activist backgrounds and communities to form this organization with the aim of supporting activists in Portland Oregon across a broad range of causes.
We have found through time and our individual experiences that there is a need for unification within the activist community in our freaky little city. We understand that those who are the loudest in the varying movements aren’t necessarily the most well-intentioned, organized, or effective in moving causes forward. Those who organize in the greatest numbers may be unscrupulous when it comes to fiscal management and lack true dedication to their purported causes. Those with the largest platforms may be in bed with the police and prison industrial complex.
We aim to be a place to turn in the face of all of that; a place for ethical, intersectional activism where we rally our numbers under diverse banners to support equality and justice for all citizens and non-citizens alike.
Code of Ethics:
- We practice intersectional activism by supporting a multitude of causes that move marginalized communities toward spaces of equality and sovereignty.
- Though we understand the importance of the work, WE DO NOT ENGAGE WITH POLICE nor do we work with organizations that do so.
- We do not take cash donations. We prefer to encourage people to make donations in our name directly to groups that are on our list of ethical organizations.
- We DO NOT speak for marginalized persons. We use our collective privilege to offer them a platform.
