The Brooklyn Action Corps invites you to join us on Monday, September 13th at 6 pm on Zoom for a free, virtual discussion on “Housing & Belonging” with Paul Susi which is a part of Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project.
During this online facilitation, we will be exploring both the history of houselessness in Portland and creating space for deeper questions about what it means to belong. We recognize that our neighbors have diverse opinions on these topics, and we hope that this opportunity fosters meaningful discussion, learning, and community building.
Saturday: Groceries 4 Grout back-to-school drive
Come support our families and kids in all different ways! Bring food and hygiene items for those in need, and also let’s celebrate back to school in person this year by bringing much-needed school supplies! You can also bring your redeemable bottles and cans for the Friends of Brooklyn Park Summer Youth Park Program.
More details on the drive event page.
Sunday: ESJ Pedalpalooza ride
The Equity & Social Justice Committee is hosting a queer & BIPoC organized mural viewing — this is inclusive of all paces of riders with an emphasis on whatever feels comfortable for you. This ride through inner SE Portland is 5 miles long and visits about 15 murals ending at Portland Cà Phê for drinks and to see Andy Chiu’s “Vietnam” mural inside. We think the loop will take 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We will of course be following current public health guidelines.
