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.

Kids’ Storytime With Keely Parrack

September 12, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Author Keely Parrak joins us for kids’ storytime to read from her new picture book, Morning, Sunshine! (North Atlantic), illustrated by John Bajet. As we all wake up, the outside world bustles with life! Discover new facts about familiar creatures — from fluttering moths and scurrying beetles to shy foxes and humming bees — as they go about their morning activities. In the city, the countryside, and the suburbs, nature can be found everywhere! A series of haiku takes readers on a close-up, observational look at the amazing abundance of nature right outside our homes. Each stanza focuses on an aspect of the natural world or a creature going about their daily activities as the sun begins to rise. Alongside the haiku, informative text goes into depth about each subject — from how much honey a bee can make to the size of a hummingbird’s egg.
