It’s no secret that Portland has blazed many trails, but the racism in Oregon’s history remains a thorn in the stem of the diverse city we have become. The only way to accomplish the call to action stated in our event’s theme, “Removing the Thorns of Racism in the City of Roses”, is by making a commitment to understand our communities and to aggressively challenge racist ideologies, both covert and overt. When we can actively work together to face it, acknowledge it and abolish such instances, we will be laying a formidable foundation for future generations of Portlanders.
