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.

About this Event

We are thrilled to announce the following schedule for this year’s annual event:

Keynote address to be given by Professor of Psychology at the University of Oregon, Philip Fisher, PhD. Dr. Fisher and his team launched RAPID-EC, an ongoing survey of families with young children, in April 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their objectives are to collect essential information from households and families and to provide actionable data to key stakeholders to inform immediate and long-term policy decisions.

A panel including Dr. David Willis, Senior Fellow at the Center for the Study of Social Policy and Representative Lisa Reynolds, Vice-Chair of the House Committee and Reach Out and Read volunteer pediatrician will follow Dr. Fisher’s remarks.

Finally, New York Times bestselling author and illustrator (and Portland resident), Nancy Tillman will answer questions and read her inspiring book, You’re All Kinds of Wonderful.
