Beaverton Is a Welcoming Community

Posted by Erin Bechtol
09.21.17

More than 40 enthusiastic, generous, energetic folks gathered on the wet sidewalks of Beaverton, Oregon, proclaiming their belief in nonviolence and their welcome to immigrants and refugees. They especially acknowledged the efforts of many community groups engaged in welcoming refugees and immigrants, who provide food, transportation, ESL tutoring, resettlement assistance, etc. They waved signs that named the groups, sang “This Land Is Your Land”, and waved at passing cars that honked their approval. Campaign Nonviolence’s Week of Actions coincided with the City of Beaverton’s Welcoming Week which brings together long-time residents and immigrants to share their cultures. The City of Beaverton, a sanctuary city, promoted and advertised the Campaign Nonviolence event.

Since there were several heavy downpours during the day we were thilled to have clear skies and a good turnout in the evening. Attendees included folks from several churches, support organizations, folks who had seen the notice on social media, and passers-by.
