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.

Virtual Event: Kimberly Dark, Author of Damaged Like Me, In Conversation with Lidia Yuknavitch

July 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207
Kimberly Dark is the author of Damaged Like Me: Essays on Love, Harm, and Transformation. She joins us, along with local author Lidia Yuknavitch – most recently the author of Verge, to discuss their stories and the challenges and triumphs of living in bodies.

About the book
Kimberly Dark’s Damaged Like Me is a series of essays and stories that reveal a complex social landscape. It shows how possible and vital it is to build roads to a more equitable and loving collective culture that includes body sovereignty, racial justice, gender equity/liberation, and much more. It does so by relying on the insights and approaches to knowledge production of those on the receiving end of inequity and violence, those whose “objectivity” on issues of oppression has been consistently maligned despite their having the most to teach us.
