7-8:30pm
In the wake of a Supreme Court decision that gutted the Voting Rights Act and a deeply concerning verdict in the Florida Trayvon Martin case, MRG Foundation is hosting a community conversation to discuss: >> What are the connections between these seemingly separate events? >> Why should these setbacks in our quest for justice matter to Oregonians? >> How do we channel our confusion, frustration, passion, and even anger into a broad movement for social change? WHEN: Join us on Tuesday, July 30th at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30. WHERE: Portland Community College, Cascade Campus, Terrell Hall, Room 122 WHO: MRG Execuvite Director, Sharon Gary-Smith, will moderate a panel with State House Representative Lew Frederick, social and racial justice activist Kathleen Saadat, Portland Black PFLAG organizer/activist Khalil Edwards, and diverse community voices. http://www.facebook.com/events/143707469168286/
