So Much Together: Unpacking Our Past: History as a Catalyst for Change

Oregon has a particularly unique history of racial injustice that in some ways mirrors and in other ways is distinct from the larger history of racial oppression that exists in our nation as a whole. As Oregonians, we’ve inherited these histories, and their legacies connect to present-day injustices. But what does it look like to confront them, as individuals and communities? And beyond that, how might we come together to shape those histories being written today?

So Much Together: As Often as the Bold: Fear, Community, Movement, and Change

Fear is central to our human experience, a powerful force that extends beyond our individual lives into political and cultural realms. In an uncertain world, the opportunities for fear to take root and spread are infinite. In this So Much Together workshop, we take a non-judgmental approach to fear, viewing it not as our enemy—but as a catalyst for self-discovery and transformation.

So Much Together: Singing Our Traditions to Life: Music, Memory, and Migration

We all have a particular lineage, a continuing story connecting us across centuries to ancestors, land, and traditions. But what does it really mean to be from a place, from a heritage? In this So Much Together workshop, we'll deepen our sense of cultural heritage and/or identity, while engaging in thoughtful dialogue about how these might impact our roles and responsibilities as residents of our current communities. 

12:30 to 3:00 p.m., Shaw Historical Library, Klamath Falls
