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.

Poetry Is A Prompt: Community Healing Project

August 16 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

IPRC (Independent Publishing Resource Center), 318 SE Main Street #175, Portland, OR 97214 + Google Map

IPRC is honored to be selected by Creative Laureate Emeritus Subashini Ganesan and the City of Portland to create a healing through art collective project.

Poetry Is A Prompt is a collaborative poetry project that we invite you to participate in. It’s an opportunity to reflect on grief and healing from the past year of heightened racist violence and the evolving COVID pandemic, as well as the many personal losses each of us experience.

Intisar Abioto (@intisarabioto), Stephanie Adams-Santos (@tarot_obscuro), jayy dodd (@jxzz_hndz), Catie Hannigan (@glinnt), and Coleman Stevenson (@darkexact) have created first lines of poetry to inspire your writing. Crystal Thomas (@darkrystalight) has created a sculptural structure to hold your lines of poetry written on paper chain garlands.

Come visit the IPRC’s new Martha Grover Zine Library/classroom between Monday, August 16th and Saturday, September 11th on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays between noon and 6PM to be, to write, and to take away journals and booklets made by IPRC staff to help you continue your healing journey through writing.

In this new stage of the pandemic, masks will continue to be required in the IPRC space.
