Tikkun Olam Project

TOP  identifies, supports and coordinates social and environmental justice actions.  Our aim is to inform the Shir Tikvah community of opportunities to engage in social and environmental justice.

Membership in Congregation Shir Tikvah is not required to participate in TOP related activities. All are open to members, their families and friends.

Interested in TOP? Contact Robbie Lambert, Working Group Chair

 

TIME-SENSITIVE ACTIVITIES

 

SATURDAY, JUNE 4TH at 12:00, join an environmental rally and protest at Zenith Energy, NW Kittredge and Hwy 30. Zenith’s oil trains pose immediate, unacceptable safety risks to tribal nations and people in Portland.
