Standing Up Virtual Event

June 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Virtual Event with Ellen Bravo and Larry Miller and their book Standing Up.

We welcome (virtually) Ellen Bravo and Larry Miller in conversation with moderator Margaret Butler, former director of Jobs with Justice and activist in the environmental justice movement.

In Standing Up, Ellen Bravo and Larry Miller have taken inspiration from their five decades organizing for labor and social justice to craft a novel about the people who clean bloody hospital sheets, forge parts for sewer pipes, arrange flights, or process checks, all while caring for kids, holding relationships together, and wrestling with multiple forms of oppression.

This book is about the people Imbolo Mbue calls “the deliberately unheard.” The ones we see every day but do not know their names, their joys or their sorrows. It shares the moments when people realize that oppression is not normal or inevitable, that change is possible, and that they can be part of that change.

As the characters stand up, slow down, form unions, leave an abusive relationship or just stir up good trouble, they entertain and enlighten and encourage us to love deeply, that we may continue the fight for justice.

The event is free to attend and is co-sponsored by Family Forward Oregon. Pre-registration is required. You can register through this link.
