Women's History Month
The mission of Womxn’s March & Rally for Action is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage in their local communities through trainings, outreach programs and events. Women’s March is committed to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect.

Although census data show Oregon’s population becoming more racially diverse, the perception persists that we are one of the whitest states in the nation. Many Oregonians value racial diversity and the dimension and depth it adds to our lives, yet we remain largely isolated from one another and have yet to fulfill the vision of a racially integrated society.
What systems are in place to prevent the racial integration and equity many of us strive for? Knowing what we do, how do we act as individuals and communities to embrace the opportunity presented by a more diverse Oregon? This is the focus of “Power, Privilege, and Racial Diversity in Oregon” a free conversation with Willamette University professor Emily Drew. This program is hosted by People's Food Co-op and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
The Community Room is located on the 2nd floor up a flight of stairs. It is also accessible by elevator lift--just let a cashier know you need to use it and they will help you!
Facilitor Bio: Drew is an associate professor of sociology at Willamette University, where she teaches courses on racism, race and ethnicity, urban sociology, mass media, and social change. She earned her doctorate from Loyola University Chicago and has published articles in Critical Studies in Media Communication, Television & New Media, and Tourism & Cultural Change.
Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future.
Oregon Humanities connects Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities. More information about Oregon Humanities’ programs and publications, which include the Conversation Project, Think & Drink, Humanity in Perspective, Bridging Oregon, Public Program Grants, and Oregon Humanities magazine, can be found at oregonhumanities.org.
