Conversation Project: Power, Privilege, and Racial Diversity in Oregon

March 10, 2019 | 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm | People's Food Co-op

3029 SE 21st Ave., Portland OR 97202

Although Census data show Oregon’s population becoming more racially diverse, the state remains one of the whitest in the nation. Many Oregonians value racial diversity and the dimension and depth it adds to our lives, yet we remain largely isolated from one another and have yet to fulfill the vision of a racially integrated society. Willamette University professor Emily Drew will lead participants in a conversation about the challenges to creating racially diverse, inclusive communities despite the accomplishments since the civil rights era. What does the racial integration of place require of us, and how might we prepare to create and embrace this opportunity?
