July 14, 2017
I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge all the positive things that are being done in our community because of the horrific May 26 Max Train attack, It is important for the survivors and the families of Ricky Best and Taliesin Namkai-Meche to know that because of their, and Micah Fletcher’s, actions, so many positive things are being done to make our community less hateful. August 12, 2017 will be the 30th anniversary of the beating death of Mulugeta Seraw. We at the CAHC are committed to using these two tragic bookends as a time period to build as strong healthy community in Portland, one resistant to the pull of hate.
Here is a partial list of events sparked by the attack on May 26th. More information about our forum on August 12 is coming.
July 13 – Personal Safety and De-Escalation training (YMCA) at Brentwood Darlington Community Center
Aug 12 – CAHC/DOJ Hate Crime Forum at the Oregon Jewish Museum
