Compassionate Resistance Campaign: January

Join us all month long on Fridays at 4pm as well as in the drop-jar on the desk as we serve Pacific Northwest Family Circle, dedicated to helping Oregon and Washington families that are fighting for accountability from law enforcement after having loved ones murdered by police.

Pacific Northwest Family Circle (PNWFC) is an all-volunteer community group that supports Oregon and Washington Families whose Loved Ones were killed or injured by police officers. The idea of connecting families to struggle for justice started in early 2016 when Irene Kalonji met Shiloh Wilson-Phelps who lost her son, Bodhi Phelps, to police violence in Oregon, only 4 months after Irene.

Today, Irene Kalonji leads the organization as its Founder. Family Members lead by contributing ideas and efforts to further the cause of police accountability. Numerous community members follow the leadership of Irene and help carry out Families’ ideas (see “PNWFC Activities”) to educate the public and reform the justice system.

You can help by donating time for actions, writing letters, showing up at protests and events, and sharing your financial resources. Go to for more information.
