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.

Saïd Sayrafiezadeh in Conversation With David Adjmi

August 11 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Saïd Sayrafiezadeh has been hailed by Philip Gourevitch as “a masterful storyteller working from deep in the American grain.” His new collection of stories — some of which have appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, and The Best American Short Stories — is set in a contemporary America full of the kind of emotionally bruised characters familiar to readers of Denis Johnson and George Saunders. These are people contending with internal struggles — a son’s fractured relationship with his father, the death of a mother, the loss of a job, drug addiction — even as they are battered by larger, often invisible, economic, political, and racial forces of American society. Searing, intimate, often slyly funny, and always marked by a deep imaginative sympathy, American Estrangement (W. W. Norton) is a testament to our addled times. It will cement Sayrafiezadeh’s reputation as one of the essential 21st-century American writers. Sayrafiezadeh will be joined in conversation by playwright David Adjmi, author of Lot Six and Marie Antoinette.
