In this time of national and local reckoning with our country and state’s grim legacy of discrimination and hate, we have come together as a broad coalition of partner organizations and allies to create a virtual summit. A Community Call to Confront Hate was the culmination of a collaborative effort by several local area organizations that previously presented webinars on the history of discrimination and bigotry in Oregon.

We have witnessed a groundswell of people ready to stand in solidarity with those who are targets of discrimination and bigotry—people who are eager to listen, to learn, and to take action to make the Pacific Northwest a place that truly protects the lives, well-being, and dignity of all who live here.

Below are recordings of every session of the summit. We hope this important work will live on as people watch and learn from our presenters.
