Conversation Project: Oregonians and the State’s Racist Past, Present, and Future

June 22, 2019 | 3:30 p.m. | Firelight Yoga

1475 N Killingsworth St., Portland OR 97217

Oregon has a long history of racism that continues to influence the state today. While we often look at how the state’s racist history affects policies and institutions, we talk less about how it affects people’s personal understanding of racism and racist experiences. Join facilitator Tai Harden-Moore in a conversation that asks, What does Oregon’s racist past mean for Oregonians? How does the state’s history affect how bias shows up for individuals? This conversation will also look at how we can identify our own racial biases and work toward concrete ways to move forward as individuals and community.
