Oregon Humanities connects Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities. Our vision is an Oregon that invites diverse perspectives, explores challenging questions, and strives for just communities.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, we engaged over 2,000 Portlanders in face-to-face conversations to build a more vibrant and inclusive community. We delivered the under-told stories in Oregon Humanities magazine to over 4,000 Portland households, schools and businesses. And we engaged more than twice that many people statewide. Since the pandemic began, we’ve been creating connection across distance with online conversations that bring Oregonians together within their communities and across county lines.
Take the 35 and under challenge! Donors who are 35 years old or younger will receive a limited-edition Oregon Humanities journal designed by Fort Wick.
“As a facilitator, I’ve witnessed firsthand how Oregon Humanities’ programs open minds and hearts. These community conversations help people with different beliefs and backgrounds challenge assumptions and discuss issues that often divide us.” —Kerani Mitchell, business owner, Oregon Humanities facilitator and donor
