Organize in your neighborhood!
As there are concerns about taking part in large marches or protests, one successful strategy we have seen is folks organizing socially distanced vigils in support of Black Lives Matter in their own neighborhoods along major thoroughfares. This can be combined with getting to know other folks who may be interested in zip code or neighborhood based affinity groups.
XRPDX is willing to help with these actions by helping folks connect with other XR members in their zip code as well as by sharing organizing strategies (utilizing NextDoor, BLM calendar, and other such strategies). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in taking part in or organizing such a local action.
One of our members who lives in Happy Valley is already organizing weekly vigils on Wednesdays 4:30-5:30 pm at 132nd and King Rd. Another group is working on a vigil for NE Prescott.
