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!

Three Veteran Guild Members (Anne Louise Sterry, Chetter Galloway and Will Hornyak) reprise crowd favorites for a rollicking evening of stories, songs and poems. An evening to remember from some of the Guild’s favorites.
Join us for a fun frolic with old friends and wonderful tales. A virtual evening of stories Saturday, May 1 at 7pm PDT / 8pm MDT / 9pm CDT / 10pm EDT / 6pm AKDT. Register here — only $10 per computer connection; as many can watch as is socially-distanced-safe.
Remember – the evening will be recorded; all registrants will get a link the day after to watch the recording anytime in the following week. So don’t let the start time or a prior commitment stand in your way: The Guild invites you one way or another for a fun program of delightful surprises.
Anne-Louise Sterry is an internationally-known motivational speaker and award-winning recording artist, author, singer-songwriter, and master storyteller. Unfailingly positive and empowering, Anne-Louise brings energy and rare authenticity to her audiences. She performs across America and Europe both as herself and as her alter-ego, Aunt Lena — an amalgam of Anne-Louise’s exuberant Italian relatives.
Storyteller Chetter Galloway is a raconteur of African and African-American stories. A native Road-Testedof Virginia and the youngest of ten children, he first experienced the power of storytelling at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Williamsburg, VA. Honing his craft at East Tennessee State University and graduating with a Masters of Storytelling, Chetter has worked with numerous Arts Centers and Commission, as well as performing throughout the Southeast and – luckily for the Guild – right here in Portland.
From Irish myths and Russian fairy tales to Oregon tall tales, poems and songs of work and labor, Will Hornyak weaves a wide web of oral traditions into engaging, well-crafted performances. He has been a featured performer at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee and at numerous regional festivals. “Warmth, wit, wisdom…Will Hornyak” Rebecca Hom (Forest Storytelling Festival)
