Racism and Resilience in Oregon's Past and Future

January 25, 2018

Many Oregonians envision a future that includes communities built on values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. At the same time, we live in a society that marginalizes and excludes people of color. Facilitators Anita Yap and Traci Price will lead participants in a conversation that looks at how Oregon’s history of racism influences our present and asks, "How can understanding historic and current impacts of racism in Oregon contribute to our sense of place and vision of the future? How can diversity and inclusion create thriving communities?"

Funded project of Oregon Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
