TIME: 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
PLACE: Concordia University in northeast Portland Hagen Campus Center 2811 NE Holman St.
(link to campus map: http://www.cu-portland.edu/documents/campus_map.pdf)
FOOD: Light breakfast and lunch provided
COST: FREE! (Please register so we know how many people are coming)
WHO SHOULD COME? Anyone who wants to help people have a greater voice in shaping their community and in local decision making. This includes people active in their neighborhood associations, communities of color, neighborhood business districts, and immigrants and refugee communities.
WHY IS THIS EVENT HAPPENING? Community members long have said they’d like more opportunities to gather and meet other community leaders from across the city and across different communities. They’ve said they want to have a chance to share their experiences, identify common interests and concerns, and learn from others. They’ve also said the event should give them lots of opportunity talk to each other about things they want to talk about versus mostly listening to pre-set workshops and speakers.
That’s what this event is all about!
