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.

Chanel Miller in Conversation With T Kira Madden

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

In the wake of her sexual assault behind a Stanford fraternity dumpster in January 2015, little was publicly known about Emily Doe beyond the description “Brock Turner’s victim.” Devoid of any true humanity in her own story, she felt what many survivors experience: fear, shame, isolation, and self-doubt. Yet even in anonymity — and before the broader eruptions of #MeToo and #TimesUp — she was quietly transcending the oppressive forces of the criminal justice system, and making her voice heard. Last year, Emily Doe emerged under her real name, Chanel Miller, to share the full story of her trauma and recovery in her breathtaking memoir, Know My Name (Penguin). Universally acclaimed, rapturously reviewed, and an instant bestseller, Miller’s memoir “gives readers the privilege of knowing her not just as Emily Doe, but as Chanel Miller the writer, the artist, the survivor, the fighter” (The Wrap). Her story of trauma and transcendence illuminates a culture biased to protect perpetrators, indicting a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and, ultimately, shining with the courage required to move through suffering and live a full and beautiful life. Miller will be joined in conversation by T Kira Madden, author of Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls.
