From Albina Vision Trust:
In honor of Junteenth, Albina Vision Trust is hosting three events this Saturday. See below for details!
After canvassing 10,000 homes in Albina, we are coming together for a virtual panel discussion at 10am: Looking back and moving forward: A teach-in about the future of Portland. With the I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project in the background, the workshop will be followed by a postcard writing workshop led by Bruce Poinsette.

P.S. Provide your perspective on the highway covers being studied by the Independent Highway Cover Team by participating in the 5 minute survey available here. AVT supports options that repair the urban fabric and restore stolen wealth by maximizing the opportunity for creating developable land.
Next, there will be a drive-in festival featuring local Black filmmakers. Presented films include the Elijah Hasan and Dr. Renee Mitchell’s Black Nod; Dru Holley’s Where do we go?; and episodes from Heart & Hustle/ Rashad Floyd’s Expressions in Black.
Get your movie tickets here! First screening is at 9pm.
And finally, Sharita Towne will present: Thanking Black Educators in Light & Sound. This will be an honoring of Black educators and visionaries with a projected video collage on the Portland Public Schools HQ building (501 N Dixon).
Drop by between 10-11:30p – no registration needed!
We hope to see you Saturday, and Happy Junteenth!
