Tojo Andrianarivo

The 2017–18 Portland Think & Drink series on race, power, and justice features four live conversations with activists, philanthropists, civil servants, and more exploring how community organizations, corporations, and religious groups work to change the structures and policies that govern our society.

Think & Drink takes place at the Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta St., in Portland, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. We invite you to stay after the program for snacks and conversation. Minors are welcome when accompanied by an adult. No-cost tickets are available for all Think & Drink events.
