Conversation Project: Where Are You From?

Exploring Identity and Belonging in Oregon

May 4, 2020 | 7:00 p.m. | Southwest Neighborhoods Inc

7688 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland OR 97219

This conversation aims to bring people together to discuss the diverse experiences of belonging in Oregon. Challenging stereotypical visions of what it means to be an “Oregonian,” participants are asked to consider how being an Oregonian or part of the community looks different for all of us. Centered around participant’s unique identities, we will look inward and share how our race, gender and other identity markers shape our relationships to our community and the world around us. We will touch on Oregon’s founding racial exclusion laws, immigration trends and share how we can foster inclusion in our own lives. This event will take place at the Multnomah Arts Center in room 30.
