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!

Delve Readers Seminar: History of the Peloponnesian War

March 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$240
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

The Peloponnesian War is the Ancient Greek historian Thucydides’s account of the strife, conflict, civil war, and military and political catastrophe he witnessed and lived through as a citizen of Athens during and after the reign of the great Pericles in the 5th century BCE–the height of the classical period. A lifelong student of democracy, his meticulous and dramatic analysis of the decades-long strife between Athens and Sparta presents a complex and probing picture of politics, character, and what he calls stasis–protracted and irresolvable civil conflict. One of the masterpieces of world history, The Peloponnesian War has proven an enduring and strikingly relevant classic for modern thinkers, writers, and students of politics.

In this six week seminar, we will read through and thoroughly discuss the complete history, using for our text The Landmark Thucydides, edited by Robert B. Strassler
