Oregon Humanities


To connect Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities.

Bottom Line for Portland

Demand for dialogue across difference is greater than ever. Oregon Humanities partners with 150 organizations each year to help more than 60,000 people expand their thinking and consider new perspectives, especially those of Oregonians who have been ignored, generalized or oppressed.

“Oregon Humanities has bolstered my hope and resolve in these distressing times. These programs are more important than ever in bridging the divides between Oregonians so that we may work together in the face of the challenges we share.” —Program host and participant
