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.
For details regarding specific events please contact the organizers or venues. If you are an organizer or venue and would like to reach out to us please feel free to contact us or submit an event using our submission form. We’d love to hear from you!

Book Launch: “Don’t Be Sad When I’m Gone” by Beatriz Dujovne
May 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Beatriz will be reading excerpts of her memoir.
In this book all human emotions deserve a place of honor: life, death, morning, love, happiness, anger…
The author’s American and Argentine cultures, the chronological time and Kairos, the more human time, reality and fantasy, are intertwined from Introduction to the Epilogue.
We follow her to Buenos Aires from her present home in Portland, where she journeys to rekindle her life after the death of her life long husband.
We partake in her internal and external experiences: those special spots where her love affair with him bloomed and took hold, her psychotherapy sessions with an Argentine psychoanalyst, the life force of the metropolis itself, and the warmth of its habitants.
And we also witness how all these elements conjure to help her return to life.
BOOK COVER REVIEW:
“… (this book) is a love story. One about a husband and wife, yes. Even more, it’s a love story between one’s former self and the self that is yet to come.”
―Megan Devine, author of It’s OK That You’re Not OK: Meeting Grief and Loss in a Culture That Doesn’t Understand
