About this Event
Power Hour is an intentional space for Black, Brown, and Indigenous people (2BI) to build community and heal from the impacts of racism. This is a 2 hour event dedicated to helping create a future Oregon that’s a vastly different depiction than our past. This event is brought to you by local racial justice nonprofit, Brown Hope.
In order to practice physical distancing, we’ve transformed Power Hour into a completely virtual space for our attendees. The idea is simple:
- Show up! Black, Brown, and Indigenous Portlanders, this event is specifically for you. (includes residents of Clackamas, Clark, Multnomah, and Washington Counties.)
- Be nourished! This is your space to meet 2BI Portlanders and talk about what matters to you.
- Get thirty-five! Receive $35 in cash in the spirit of reparations for the work you’re doing to build a beautiful new vision of our local community.
- Build power! Every Power Hour will feature a 45 minute discussion about a local and relevant policy topic for us to collectively weigh in on.
This event is for White people, too. (But you can’t have access to the conference line! Instructions are below). White people can show up and support by DONATING. Instead of attending the event, your presence will be felt through the spirit of reparations–– active financial support for healing, leadership, and community building within Portland’s Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities.
$35 will support the participation of one community member, and you are strongly encouraged to donate for more than one participant. Monthly donations are very much needed to sustain the Power Hours and all of Brown Hope’s programs. You can make a one-time donation or recurring contributions here: https://secure.givelively.org/donate/brown-hope.
