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!

Kim Johnson in Conversation with Black Cultural Library Advocates

September 24, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Kim Johnson’s debut novel, This Is My America, has been described as a cross between The Hate U Give and Just Mercy.

Join Carla Davis and Ebonee Bell, members of Multnomah County Library’s Black Cultural Library Advocates team, as they chat with Ms. Johnson about first novels, love triangles, and how teens and young adults can advance antiracism and social justice.

More about the book:
This Is My America tells the story of 17-year-old Tracy Beaumont, who is in a race against time to prove her imprisoned father’s innocence and save him from death row. Then the unthinkable happens and the police accuse Tracy’s talented older brother, Jamal, of a horrible crime.
