Conversation Project: Race and Place

Racism and Resilience in Oregon's Past and Future

October 2, 2019 | 6:30 p.m. | The Alberta Abbey Foundation

126 NE Alberta Street, Portland OR 97211

Many Oregonians have a vision of a future that includes communities built on values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. At the same time, we live in a society that marginalizes and excludes people of color. Facilitators Traci Price and Anita Yap will lead participants in a conversation that looks at how Oregon’s history of racism influences our present and asks, How can understanding Oregon’s historic and current impacts of racism contribute to our sense of place and vision of the future? How can diversity and inclusion create thriving communities?
