Our Stories Matter Kickoff Presentation

ourstoriesfinal
It’s time for the histories and cultures of all Oregonians to be recognized within our systems of public education. Today, we are launching a critical response campaign called Our Stories Matter, with a mission to ensure that the history of underrepresented people included as an equal part of our curriculum standards for Oregon Studies.
 
Our Stories Matter is a growing movement that calls on the City of Portland, Multnomah County, and Portland Public Schools to work with Know Your City and other culturally specific organizations to provide inclusive Oregon Studies curriculum for youth and K-12 schools in the Portland region.
 
Join us as we kick off Our Stories Matter with a presentation to Portland City Council, 10:45am on January 27th.
 
As the population of the Portland region grows, displacement and discrimination continues to erase the value of our combined histories and cultures. Even though our schools are more diverse than ever, there is an educational and cultural void for our youth of color, young girls, lgbtq youth, and other historically oppressed identities. During history and civics lessons, their personal experiences are often misrepresented or ignored, which makes school success more of a challenge. Know Your City is working to make sure that all students have a fair chance to have their story told.
 
One of the campaign’s biggest supporters is Portland Association of Teachers President Gwen Sullivan, who says, “As teachers, we know our students need an authentic education when it comes to their own history and culture. If we want to equip them to change the world for the better, we have to make sure all voices are heard.”
 
Our Stories Matter has been endorsed by local and multicultural organizations such as AFSCME Council 75, Basic Rights Oregon, APANO, In Other Words, Verde, Lara Media Services, Standing Up for Racial Justice PDX, the Bus Project, and Tivnu.
