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!

Quinton Hallett Poetry Reading
March 10 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Quinton Hallett’s poetry reading was originally scheduled on May 13, 2020, but the Pandemic intervened and the reading needed to be rescheduled. It will now be livestreamed on March 10, 2021 on the Ledding Library YouTube Channel.
Quinton Hallett writes and edits from Noti, Oregon. She has four chapbooks (Quarry, 1992; Shiver Quench Slake, 2004; Refuge from Flux, 2010; Stranger by the Hour, 2018). She founded Fern Rock Falls Press in 2004, and her work appears or is forthcoming in journals and anthologies including: Willawaw Journal, Cirque, The Edge of Awe, and december. She has coordinated a reading series, high school poet visits, and presented workshops for the Oregon Poetry Association. Quinton received residencies from Caldera and Soapstone. In 2013, an animated short film by award-winning filmmaker, John Haugse featured one of her poems, “To the Long Ago Maybes.” Her first full-length collection, Mrs. Schrödinger’s Breast, from Uttered Chaos was nominated for the Oregon Book Award in 2016. An aspect of this collection shifts physics vocabulary to some of the intractable matters of the body and heart.
A former art administrator for the Smithsonian Institution and the Armand Hammer Foundation, Quinton has lived on both coasts and in the Midwest. She’s been happily ensconced in the Coast Range Foothills for thirty years and counting.
Of her current work, Quinton states “I have been working for some time on the notion of triage as metaphor. I’m as drawn to what is discarded or jettisoned in order to save something as I am in the thing saved.”
