TIME:  6:30pm - 8:30pm

LOCATION:  Ashland Public Library, Gresham Room

COST:  No charge

In the wake of a Supreme Court decision that gutted the Voting Rights Act and a deeply concerning verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon Martin, MRG Foundation is hosting community conversations in Portland, Eugene, and Ashland to discuss:

  • What are the connections between these seemingly separate events?
  • Why should these setbacks in our quest for justice matter to Oregonians?
  • How do we channel our confusion, frustration, passion, and even anger into a broad movement for social change?

Join this community conversation with Representative Peter Buckley, Virginia Camberos (Rogue Valley Oregon Action), Shaun Franks (Student at SOU), and Sharon Gary-Smith (MRG Foundation).

For more information or to let us know you’re coming, contact Sheryl Sackman by email or 503-289-1517.

Thanks to the Ashland Library for hosting this important conversation. This event is free, all ages, and wheelchair accessible.
