For those unable to attend on April 26th, here is a video recording of the event:

Here is the video from the end of Kristin Tiegen’s presentation:

Despite Oregon’s progressive and forward thinking reputation, our history tells another story – indeed, many refer to Oregon as the South of the North, as we have historically embraced segregation, exclusion and displacement. Through this presentation and conversation, we will look at how Oregon’s whiteness, historically and today, has created this reality. Join Kristin Teigen (faculty member at Portland State University, professor at Marylhurst University, and a justice-seeking nonprofit consultant) at Moreland Presbyterian Church¬†April 26 ¬†7-9 PM in the Fellowship Hall (directly off of the parking lot). Co-sponsored by The NARWAHLS advocacy group.
