Join us for Interfaith Advocacy Day
Wednesday, February 11, 8:00 AM-4:00 PM
Please join us for a full day of Advocacy on issues of Social Justice coordinated by the Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon. The morning will be focused on training participants about the issues. After lunch, which will be provided, participants will head over to speak with elected representatives and senators. The last Interfaith Advocacy Day included nearly 300 participants from many different faith communities throughout Oregon.
The focus of advocacy efforts will be on confronting poverty, expanding health care, promoting economic equality, and preventing gun violence. What we learn from these issue briefings we can carry into our ongoing advocacy efforts.
The registration fee is 20 dollars for adults and 10 dollars for students. That fee includes continental breakfast, lunch, and materials.

Speakers: Former Oregon Supreme Court Justice Jacob Tanzer and Ron Silver
Join former Oregon Supreme Court Justice Jacob Tanzer, Ron Silver, and the Northwest Freedom Singers as they tell the story of Mickey and Rita Schwerner and Jewish participation in the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi in the 1960s. After the FBI found the bodies of Mickey Schwerner, James Chaney, and Andrew Goodman in August 1964, Jake Tanzer was part of the Justice Department team that went to Mississippi to root out and indict the killers. Ron and Jake will tell how Jews came to play such a large role in the Movement and how most of the killers were finally brought to justice. The Northwest Freedom Singers will make the room come alive with the music of the Movement.
