In 2018, Portland Black community members across the diaspora (Immigrant, Afro-Indigenous, ADOS) came together to develop a framework that bridges the gap between our community and mainstream environmental justice efforts.
This walking series will highlight important aspects of what became the Afro-Ecology Framework, including community, spirituality, and justice while connecting us back to our spaces both urban and natural. Where have we come from, who are we now, and who will we become. By acknowledging the past, present, and future in this series, we will explore Portland’s rich Black history at educational locations with visioning activities that empower us to create our future.
There will be five walks in the series – register today.
