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!

She is also the author of The Conversation (2015), whose title poem was the winner of the Gregory O’Donoghue International poetry award, and three previous collections of poems, as well as two chapbooks. Her Lifesaving: A Memoir was the winner of the Lambda Book Award and runner-up for the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for the Art of the Memoir.
Among her other awards are: The Robin Becker Chapbook Prize, The Andres Berger Award, The Dulwich Festival International Poetry Competition, an American Civil Liberties Union Freedom of Expression Award, and, from Literary Arts, The Stuart H. Holbrook Award for outstanding contributions to Oregon’s literary life (with Ruth Gundle).
Judith co-founded The Flight of the Mind Writing Workshops, which for seventeen years brought together outstanding teachers and women writers from all over the US at a residential summer event in Oregon. She is also one of the founders of Soapstone Inc., a nonprofit organization working to support women writers.
Judith was, for several years, on the faculty of the low residency MFA program in Creative Writing at the University of Alaska, Anchorage. She has taught at numerous universities and writing workshops across the USA, and has led classes for The Poetry School in London and the Almassera in Spain. Born in Brighton, England, she lived in Spain for three years and has now lived in Oregon for 45 years, where she is an activist for the disabled.
