Who We Are

The Central Oregon Social Justice Center houses community and social justice groups, labor unions and justice-seeking law firms in a welcoming, common office space near downtown Bend, Oregon. With other local groups, we are working to build a broad coalition of diverse social justice allies into a unified movement for justice, democracy and human dignity in Central Oregon. 

What We Do

We offer shared infrastructure and meeting spaces to our office partners and make these resources available to local social justice, faith and community groups doing great work in our community but lacking the resources of unions and larger groups.  

Our Groups

Our hosting group is Central Oregon Jobs with Justice. A broad array of faith, community, justice, union, equality, law and environmental groups share our space or participate in our local coalition. 

Monday, November 7, Central Oregon Jobs With Justice Board Meeting

When: 5:30 p.m.
Where: Social Justice Center, 155 NW Irving Ave. Bend

Monthly Central Oregon Jobs With Justice board meeting.  Jobs with Justice fights for living wage jobs, fair trade and immigrant rights, and against privatization, globalization, and inhumane workfare programs. We will be discussing our current projects and plans for the near future.
