Are you frustrated with Portland’s state of unaffordable housing? KYC is hosting an event on Monday, October 24th as an outlet for conversation and action. Thanks to the Oregon Humanities Responsive Grant program, we are offering Visions of a Housed Community, a teach-in and community dialogue to explore the diverse perspectives around how we should provide safe, affordable housing for all Portlanders. This event is free to the public, and we’ll be providing food and drinks. RSVP here.
