We couldn’t be more pleased to be honored by the Northwest Workers’ Justice Project this year.  We are fortunate to have strong, committed partners who share our goals and work together to create a more caring economy in Oregon.

Northwest Workers’ Justice Project represents the most marginalized of workers in their struggle to create economic justice and dignity in the work place.  We are pleased to recognize the work of Andrea Paluso and Sharon Bernstein of Family Forward Oregon as Tribunes* of Worker Justice for their leadership in the successful campaign to guarantee paid sick leave in the City of Portland, and for their strong efforts in advancing bills for paid sick leave and the rights of domestic workers before the legislature in Salem. *In ancient Rome, tribunes were selected by the common people to defend their interests.

You’re Invited to celebrate our award and NWJP’s 10th anniversary on Wednesday, October 2nd in Portland.  Details & tickets right here.
