Join us December 12th at Darcelle XV Showplace for the public release of Comics For Change! Illustrated Stories From Oregon’s Front Lines. Writers and artists from the series will present a brief slideshow about the project, while original artwork made for the comic series will be on display for one-night-only.

A woman who started a self-empowered soup kitchen for the homeless. A man who never stopped advocating for the African American community. A group who fights to protect Oregon forests from logging corporations. These stories have one thing in common: they celebrate people who are making Oregon a better place for everyone.

Featuring the stories of these community heroes:

  • Alex Brown
  • Polo Catalani
  • Walter Cole
  • Dan Handelman
  • Cheryl Johnson
  • Paul Knauls
  • Ibrahim Mubarak
