Lead and accompanied by local musicians, YOU will be a part of the collective choir as we celebrate some of the values that make our community strong - diversity, equality, compassion, resilience and love. Featuring: Kenya Hall, Kate Beever, and friends. Sponsored by Portland House of Music and Events

After a challenging 2016, the need to advocate for ourselves and our neighbors is as important as ever. Our call to action is simple: however you see your capacity to be impactful, stay engaged and stay vocal. Pledge your support this year for the issues that are important to you - whether that is volunteering your time, donating, or calling your representatives, be steadfast in those actions. We will have some takeaway resources at the event.
