May Day is about 2 weeks away! Is everyone excited yet!?

We've got flyers and have started distributing them. We could use your help in putting them around town! You can pick some up at the AFSC building (2249 E Burnside St

Portland, OR) they will be on the porch in a purple bin or at the JWJ office (1500 NE Irving St #585)

We've also got some wonderful speakers and music. Great organizations will be tabling. And then we'll march along our route together yelling our chants, making our voices heard.

But May Day 2014 could be even better with your help!
We want you to come to the next May Day Coalition meeting with your excitement on April 23rd at 5:30pm at the JWJ office (1500 NE Irving St #585)

We need folks to sign up to help collect donations at the rally, "peace keepers" (there will be a training beforehand), and make some art! Come to the next meeting or send us a message to

It's crunch time! Let's do this!
