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: Love in the Time of Cholera

June 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

This iconic novel, that Thomas Pynchon called “shining and heartbreaking,” is absolutely what its name implies: A love story (or really many love stories) that occur during a cholera outbreak along the Carribean coast of Colombia. Following Fermina Daza, Dr. Juvenal Urbino, & Florentino Ariza, the book explores all the facets of love—from the innocent to the cruel, from the honest to the disgusting—all against a backdrop of death, showing us that even in the hardest conditions, we will fall in love. The narrative spans decades, & like the best of García Márquez’s work, it feels infinite: everything is presented in intoxicating detail.
