Other updates from the Know Your City team:
The Our Stories Matter campaign launched successfully! We had powerful testimony in front of City Council last Wednesday, including MRG Foundation’s Katharine Quaid, 2014 Oregon Teacher of the Year Brett Bigham, and PPS School Board Member Mike Rosen. Read the coverage of our campaign for inclusive cultural studies in the Portland Tribune and the Portland Observer. Sustain our momentum by signing the petition and sharing it with your friends.
The Jade Journal, Volume 2 is starting at Harrison Park on February 26th! And we need your help—our 6th graders are in need of more digital point and shoot or SLR cameras, 6 megapixels or better, to use during their photography workshops. Email ask@knowyourcity if you have a digital camera that we can borrow!
We’re grateful for the positive response with the Hidden History of Albina Tour – make sure to register for tickets on the 13th and 27th here! If these dates don’t work for you, contact us about scheduling a private tour!
