MLK Day 2021
Virtual Event Saturday, January 23rd
From Resilience to Black Liberation: Uprooting Systems of Inequity
Save the date for the MLK Virtual Racial Justice Teach-In presented by the Campus Collaborative! It will be held on Saturday, January 23rd, 2021 from 10:00am to 3:30pm.
This informative and interactive event will center the history and narratives of Portland’s Black community during, and around, Martin Luther King Day, the only national holiday committed to a Black leader. In collaboration with 2- and 4- year college and university campuses as well as several community partners around Portland, this Teach-in will feature a variety of community panels, workshops, community engagement, and facilitated dialogues with Black-led organizations. The work of the Civil Rights Movement is far from over, our goal is to support community-based programming that centers ongoing narratives of Black activism, creativity, and liberation.
Registration for this event opens January 8th, 2021!
Thank you to the members of the MLK Racial Justice Campus Collaborative who made this event possible!
