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: Living in Global Community, A Conversation with Katherina Audley & Lucas Spiegel

May 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

In March of 2020, the people of the world went home and shut their doors in an effort to combat a global health crisis. In the days that followed, our social media feeds filled with images of wildlife roaming newly emptied streets and beaches. It prompted many of us to question the scope of our role and impact in the world.

Katherina Audley is a National Geographic Explorer who has spent the past 27 years connecting people around the world with nature through programs, writing, and activities that inspire connection and environmental stewardship. Today she is the Founder and Director of Whales of Guerrero a non-profit based in Mexico that exists to facilitate community-driven conservation through whale science, education, and capacity-building programs.

Lucas Spiegel is the author of the recently published book, The Weight of Empathy, an account of his 22-month trip across the surface of our Earth and what that journey taught him.

Together, they’ll discuss their experiences and lessons learned, and share with us how those experiences have changed the ways they travel and view and interact with the world outside the US.
