We the People Oregon Conference

June 23, 2018 @ 8:30 am 4:30 pm

Join the fight in Oregon! Our "We The People" conference will bring together ACLU members and supporters from across state for an entire day of workshops, networking, and community building.



The conference will revolve around skill development, issue analysis, and building advocacy strategies. This will be a great place for anyone looking to meet other activists, gain knowledge and practical skills on civil rights and civil liberties issues, and plug into the work of the ACLU of Oregon and other organizations in the fight for social justice. Plus, we will have a special keynote speech from Maru Mora Villalpando, one of the country’s most prominent and fearless immigrant-rights activists!
