Message from the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland

In this time of national and local reckoning with our country and city’s grim legacy of discrimination and hate, we have come together as a broad coalition of  friends and allies to create a series of public programs to confront hate.

We have been reminded almost daily that our communities of color, immigrants, and LGBTQ persons, as well as many of our neighbors of various religious faiths, are frequent targets of vicious hatred. Nevertheless, we have also seen seeds of hope. We have witnessed an upsurge of people ready to stand in solidarity with those who are targets of discrimination and hate—people who are eager to listen, to learn, and to take action to make Portland a place that truly protects the lives, well-being, and dignity of all who live here.

We are hosting monthlyish webinars representing people who have historically—and continually—been the targets of discrimination and hatred in Oregon. These webinars are presented by a broad group of organizations and speakers in our greater Portland community. This will culminate in a half day virtual summit on May 26th on Confronting Hate in Oregon.
