Coalition of Communities of Color: Celebrating 20 Years

Description

Coalition of Communities of Color: Celebrating 20 Years (with green, orange, blue, and brown logo and corners)

Summary:
Join us for an in-person celebration of 20 years of advocacy, research, and leadership for racial justice.

This will be our first face-to-face community event in over two years. We’ll have food, drinks, music, images, and stories from the past two decades, speakers and community leaders sharing their reflections, and plenty of time to catch up with each other and connect. This will also be our biggest fundraising event of the year.

Program:
Doors open at 5:30 pm for mingling with a wide selection of appetizers and drinks followed by a set of speakers at 7:00 pm where we will hear from environmental justice advocate Anjeanette Brown and Portland City Commissioner Carmen Rubio alongside our Executive Director Marcus Mundy and Board Chair Tony DeFalco. Guests will be welcome to continue mingling over drinks and hors d'oeuvres until 9:00 pm.

We so hope you will join us and help reflect on our first 20 years while building a strong foundation for the next 20 years of coming together for racial justice. No celebration would be complete without everyone who has come together to make our collective successes a reality.

If you cannot attend in-person, we plan on livestreaming the "program hour" with our featured speakers to our YouTube channel.

COVID-19 Note:
We will be continually assessing what protocols make sense for preventing the spread of COVID-19. The Redd East is a large space with good ventilation, space for outdoor mingling, and we will be opening up the space to the maximum extent possible to promote high air exchange. While masking requirements have been lifted in our area, we welcome attendees to use face coverings at the event, according to their needs and comfort level. We may ask our guests to wear a mask depending on case rates and community spread. We will be in touch leading up to the event with updates.
