Event description

Description


Global displacement is on the rise, thanks to intractable conflicts, economics, and climate change. Oregonians have and will continue to see the results of international migration in our neighborhoods. How might we build more informed, responsive, resilient, and vibrant communities? Participants will consider questions of up-rootedness, hospitality, identity, perception and integration; and how we might build more responsive communities. This is the focus of ͞The Space Between Us: Immigrants, Refugees, and Oregon, a free conversation with Manuel Padilla on Monday, Feb 26th, 2018 at 6 PM at Portland Mercado 7238 SE Foster Rd Portland, OR 97206. This program is hosted by SE Uplift and Portland Mercado and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. A Spanish interpreter will be provided.

Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact Muz Afzal at (503) 232-0010 ext 319 or muz@seuplift.org

Padilla has done peace work in Haiti, Chad, and Washington, DC, working with internally displaced people, immigrants, and refugees. Currently, he implements reconciliation workshops in refugee contexts with the Jesuit Refugee Service, works with youth through restorative justice frameworks, and volunteers with Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s Circles of Support and Accountability program.
