Who we are

The Portland Solidarity Network (PDXSol) is an all-volunteer organization devoted to advocating for the rights of workers and tenants. We use direct action to confront individuals, organizations, or corporations responsible for exploiting, harassing, or cheating – in monetary or non-monetary terms – workers or tenants. The Seattle Solidarity Network, which has been in existence for more than a decade, is our chief inspiration and organizational model.

Our organizing model

Portland Solidarity Network embraces the broader struggle for worker and tenant self-determination, but we principally operate within the context of direct action campaigns. We initiate campaigns in response to specific instances of abuse by bosses or landlords. Our campaigns consist of direct action aimed at achieving specific demands for individual workers or tenants. We are dedicated to the principle that an injury to one is an injury to all.
