Conversation Project: Where Are You From?

Exploring What Makes Us Oregonian

May 9, 2019 | 6:00 p.m. | Coos Bay Public Library

525 Anderson Ave., Coos Bay OR 97420

In 2015, Oregon’s population exceeded 4 million people. Not only are we growing in number, we’re also changing demographically. Considering that Oregon has a history of racial exclusion, these changes prompt questions about Oregonian identity and values. How do we build communities that welcome people of all backgrounds? How are minority and under-represented populations included and treated today? Drawing on the diverse histories and backgrounds of attendees, Kerani Mitchell leads a conversation that asks what makes us Oregonian and how can we create inclusive communities.
