From October 2020 to March 2021, a broad coalition of friends and allies came together and created a series of public programs to confront hate.
During 2020 we were reminded, almost daily, that our communities of color, immigrants, and LGBTQ persons, as well as many of our neighbors of various religious faiths, are frequent targets of vicious hatred. Nevertheless, we have also seen seeds of hope. We have witnessed an upsurge of people ready to stand in solidarity with those who are targets of discrimination and hate—people who are eager to listen, to learn, and to take action to make Portland a place that truly protects the lives, well-being, and dignity of all who live here.
Below are recordings of our webinars representing people who have historically—and continually—been the targets of discrimination and hatred in Oregon. These webinars are presented by a broad group of organizations and speakers in our greater Portland community.
The culmination of our series is the Community Call to Confront Hate Summit on May 26th.
