Race-Informed Social Justice Meeting, July 26th, 6-9 pm, at MCDHQ

In our quest to live the values we stand for, the Multnomah County Democrats will convene a Social Justice Committee to have a race-informed conversation about the challenges of People of Color (POC) in our county.

If you are a person of color, a person in allyship with a person of color, or simply a Democrat that would like to see more equity and fairness in our community as it relates to race, please come to this, our first organizing meeting.

The event will be held at our headquarters (3551 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland OR 97232) (Google Maps). One marked accessible parking spot is available behind the office. Street parking is also available.

Please be prepared to have a respectful conversation that is challenging and will help us bring meaningful actions to support the various communities of color in our fold. All are welcome.

Please RSVP to: ViceChair1@multdems.org
