Collective Voices: Solidarity Series

Collective Voices: Solidarity Series draws attention to the issues faced by marginalized communities across the globe by illuminating how these issues manifest within the context of the greater Portland community. We have invited organizations and speakers that work toward amplifying such narratives and dismantling structures that prevent people from speaking out. These organizations cultivate a spirit of solidarity, and our speakers will invite you to join in this work. Dinner is provided for all events.
