Posted: January 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

Right 2 Survive founder and leader, Ibrahim Mubarak, will be honored this Sunday with the Genevieve Nelson Award.  Right 2 Survive and Right 2 Dream Too members are also participating in the events that Sisters of the Road has planned for next weekend.  We are gearing up to march in the MLK Day procession too.  Please join us, and meet members of our community and allies.

Below are a few of the upcoming events from Sisters of the Road:

  • Sunday, January 15th at 11am:  Sisters’ Dorothy Day Community School will host a special teach-in on nonviolent direct action in the Cafe. We are hoping that everyone who attends this training will play an active role in the march the next day. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Lucilene at lucilene@sistersoftheroad.org or 503-222-5694 ext. 37.
  • January 15th, from 6-8pm: Join us for the 2nd peaceroots! We will gather to celebrate our commitment to nonviolence and economic human rights. Join us as we present the 2nd Genevieve Nelson Award to Ibrahim Mubarak, Dignity Village and Right 2 Dream Too co-founder for his many years of work. Let’s celebrate with food, music and community!
  • MLK Day, January 16th at noon: Gather for our 19th Martin Luther King, Jr. Day March and Rally. During a time of increasing public uprising for racial justice, immigrant rights, housing rights and healthcare for all, we are excited to come together on this special weekend to honor the social justice movements that have come before us and celebrate our continuation of the struggle!
