We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.
We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.
An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

The title of this conversation is also the title of the chapter written by Steve Forrester in the recently published book Eminent Oregonians. The book’s subtitle is Three Who Matter: Abigail Scott Duniway, Richard Neuberger, Jesse Applegate. Steve Forrester’s chapter focuses on why Neuberger is a forgotten figure in Oregon and national political history.

Steve was editor and publisher of The Daily Astorian for 28 years. He is president of the EO Media Group. He was the founding president of Liberty Restoration, Inc., a private non-profit that restored the historic Liberty Theater in Astoria. He served as chairman of the Oregon Arts Commission. Prior to earning a degree in economics at Portland State University, Steve served in Vietnam with the U.S. Marine Corps. In 1973, he was one of the five principals who started Willamette Week.
