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.

Spring Storytelling Intensive
May 28, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$175
This four-week intensive will help you master the art of live true personal storytelling, as seen in The Moth and Back Fence PDX. The workshop covers crafting stories using the five-part story arc, delivering your best performance onstage, and a treasure trove of secrets to this satisfying artform. You will get personal feedback to support you in developing your unique storytelling voice and style.
Mindy Nettifee is a producer of Back Fence PDX and host for The Moth. She is an award-winning writer, performance poet, and storyteller. In addition to her many years teaching the craft of live storytelling, she has taught creative writing and performance workshops at several places, including NYU and Lewis & Clark college. She is currently a doctoral candidate in Depth Psychology with a specialization in Somatic Studies, conducting research on the impact of trauma on the voice and the ways we tell our stories and use our voices to heal.
