About

The Social Justice Action Center (SJAC) is a grassroots non-profit (501c3 status) organization with a community space in the heart of Southeast Portland, Oregon.

SJAC supports grassroots community organizing and we have six main programs: 1) Managing a community space for events and meetings. 2) Coordinating a community kitchen. 3) Developing community organizing and education. 4) Providing low-income housing. 5) Open Hours Program 6) Offering free community events, film series and discussions.

SJAC prioritizes the leadership of marginalized communities, especially those of color. In particular, we recognize the sovereignty of indigenous peoples of this land, such as the Multnomah and other Chinookan villages of the confluence of these great rivers and the Kalapuya and Wasco peoples in the nearby hills and valleys (some of whose descendants are now part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, of Siletz, and of Warm Springs).

SJAC has no paid organizers or staff and consists of a Board of Directors, Advisory Council and Coordinating Committee.
