Join Michele Martinez Thompson, Martha Calderon, and Gerardo Jimenez for a day of story-sharing and community development, focusing on exploring, addressing, and reducing the isolation often reported by first-generation students of color in higher education. Designed for individuals who identify as people of color.
This event is part of "Culture & Conversation," a month-long series of events designed to spark campus and community dialogue around identity, equity, and community hosted by the School of Social Work at Portland State University. Now entering its seventh year and scheduled throughout the month of April, the series welcomes thinkers, activists, and community leaders in lively discussions around topics impacting communities in Oregon. All events are free and open to the community.
