Tune in this Tuesday, June 16 at noon on YouTube Live (https://youtu.be/prR65ogO-1o) for our live-captioned Queer Town Hall. We’ll be talking with local Black leaders as they share their work, perspectives, and experiences during ongoing protests for racial justice and the fight against police brutality, on both the local and national levels. Please note the time change: we will be broadcasting live at noon to free up the evening for our panelists’ community organizing and engagement.
We’re honored to be joined by the following Black community leaders:
-Jo Ann Hardesty, Portland City Commissioner
-Alexxis M. Robinson-Woods, Program and Services Director for Bradley Angle
-Salomé Chimuku, Co-Founder of Black Resilience Fund
