Sunday, Sept 30th * Sheridan
4-6:30pm: Sheridan to NORCOR: The Kick Off Rally
Rural caravans from around the state gather at FCI Sheridan to declare our resistance to detention and deportation and call for the end of ICE contracts at Oregon’s two detention centers: FCI Sheridan and NORCOR regional jail in The Dalles. We will rally together in front of FCI Sheridan and then share a langar, or communal meal, prepared by members of the Sikh community. Those continuing on with us the next day will return to camp at a farm nearby for a campfire and preparations for our first day of marching and caravanning.
Thursday, Oct 4th * Portland
Sheridan to NORCOR: Unshackle Oregon
At 9:30 am, meet up with us at Elizabeth Caruthers Park and march a few blocks to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, where we’ll make our message clear: end the contracts in NORCOR and Sheridan. Join rural and urban Oregonians as we come together and march to several locations along the water, throughout downtown, and across the bridge.
Saturday, Oct 6th * The Dalles
Sheridan to NORCOR: The Send Off Rally
Journeyers, leaders and community members in the Gorge and friends from around the state will convene at 10am in The Dalles for a march through downtown. Meet up at the Sunshine Mill parking lot (901 E 2nd) on the east side of the parking lot--next to the grain silos. As we march, we will stop along the way to learn about the history of organizing and resistance to detention and deportation in the Gorge. We will end our march in front of NORCOR regional jail where journeyers and local organizers will lead us through some resistance in action!
