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.

Alexandra and David Brown

November 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
Broadway Books, 1714 NE Broadway, Portland, OR 97232 + Google Map

From Broadway Books’s website:

We welcome Alexandra and David Brown to the store on Wednesday, November 7th, at 7 pm to read from their recently published book A Year Off: A Story about Traveling the World – and How to Make It Happen for You, published by Chronicle Books.

The book is one part practical travel guide, one part travel essays and photos, and one part memoir, documenting their story of deciding to take a year off from their jobs and “regular lives” to travel the world after only knowing each other for a few months. Over the course of one year they visited twenty countries together.

The major sections of the book cover steps to take “Before You Go,” “On the Road,” and “Coming Back Home.” This is a book for all the dreamers, would-be adventurers, and endearingly practical professionals looking to scratch the travel itch and take a risk on what may be the best time of their lives. With many gorgeous photographs and actionable travel advice, A Year Off captures all the beauty and magic of the wanderlust spirit, guiding readers on how to take the same leap and showing them just how doable a journey this type of round-the-world travel is.

The Browns now live in Portland with their young daughter.
