Our partners OPAL and the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO), are hosting a series of movie nights titled “Our Families, Our Homes.”
Gentrification and displacement have been transforming cities across the country. Low-income communities and communities of color are most affected–and they are also organizing to fight back.
Join us for this monthly film series to learn more about how communities of color, from New Orleans, LA to Boston, MA have organized to fight for affordable housing, Environmental Justice, and community-controlled development. After the films, we will engage in discussions about how we can use these experiences and stories in our organizing efforts against displacement in the Jade District and in the city overall.
All events are from 7-9pm at
8114 SE Division St.
