Highly recommend the TV series on Africa's Great Civilizations by Dr Henry Louis Gates, jr. for acknowledging the accomplishments and contributions of pre-colonization African societies. Eye opening!
Sarah Vito

Are there job boards in Eugene for businesses that want to actively recruit BIPOC folks?

That's a great question, Karen. I am just wondering if one exists.
Adriana Medina

Sarah Vito not exactly what you're saying but I found this resource last week:https://lanecounty.org/government/county_departments/county_administration/operations/financial_services/local_black-_owned_business_directory

@ Sarah, I am just not sure that it will result in fair, just and equitable emplacement. Another version of affirmative action.

Me, too Laylah - thank you for stating and asking.
Ingrid Koch
01:23:21
Ayisha, curious if you offer support via consulting to BIPOC communities in terms of how to create impact within these systems. Meaning, how do we navigate these systems to affect change from our unique entry point.
Carol Dennis - MVT
01:23:30
We have given you a seat at our table – but we truly believe it is our table.
Maisie Davis
01:23:31
Agencies in this town are so good at the talk, but when it comes to the walk can't even tell the right foot from the left
Sy Kim
01:24:13
what can we individually do to make Eugene better for all of us?

American Concealed
01:35:15
I am an indigenous person born and raised with the confederated tribes of the Grand Ronde, I minored in cultural anthropology and I love to learn and help. I have friends, family and foster kids of all races and none are treated differently. Am I racist if I don't agree with what I have read and learned about the BLM movement, and do you have some excellent resources for me to learn good things about the blm movement?
Maisie Davis
01:35:29
yes!!! access is so important.

drop the "right to comfort"
Ana Richardson '18 (she,hers)

Thank you, Ayisha Elliot! It was so amazing to be apart of this conference and conversation. I learned so much.
Karen Williams
01:48:55
In stores I get asked for “Do you have this in another size?”
Karen Williams
01:49:12
Asked for items.
Sarah Vito
01:51:36
Multi-culture>monoculture
Karen Williams
01:52:02
Agree on the treatments of places. Multicultural are more positive experiences. Or if they know me from frequent attendance.
Sarah Wagener
01:52:21
I fear it was designed that way.....
Adriana Medina
01:54:10
Can you talk about those "well educated white folx" who think they are doing the work but are actually perpetuating harm. How to have the convo that they need to continue to learn recognize their racist ways?
