Beloved Community Forums
Ainsworth United Church of Christ

Starting with the premise that the opposite of fear is friendship, and the opposite of "hate crime" is "building the beloved community," join a diverse cross-section of your neighbors on the fourth Sunday of each month to make new friends and deepen your community relationships. Each gathering will welcome a different community leader who will share their vision of "what are we for" here in Oregon, and offer us a chance to discern and discuss what we are for as well. Refreshments will be provided by Po'Shines: Cafe De La Soul. Brought to you by the Beloved Community of Oregon.

Our first gathering will be led by Bobbin Singh, Executive Director of the Oregon Justice Resource Center, a non-profit working to promote civil rights and improve legal representation for communities that have often been underserved. Mr. Singh will offer his own vision of the kind of world he is working for, and offer some guiding questions for us to do the same.


We, Interfaith Council of Greater Portland, are a community of people who share hope for a loving, thriving, understanding and connected world...

The Oregon Justice Resource Center assists local non-profit legal organizations with trial and appellate litigation on behalf of indigent, prisoner, and low-income clients in federal and state courts on a range of civil liberties and civil rights matters, including but not limited to the death penalty, wrongful convictions, and unfair procedural barriers to the courts.

National Night Out- Ice Cream Sandwich Social - Montavilla Edition
Milepost 5

Do you know your neighbors? When neighbors know and look out for one another, they create a connected, safer and more resilient community, which is important for crime prevention efforts and recovery following a natural disaster. Getting involved in National Night Out is a great way to bring your neighbors together.

National Night Out (NNO) is an annual celebration held on the first Tuesday in August throughout the United States and Canada. During this time, community members gather at small block parties and neighborhood events to strengthen their relationships with one another in the spirit of creating safer neighborhoods. Plan your own party or attend one in your neighborhood.

Come out to see us for some yummy ice cream sandwiches and getting to know your neighbors!


Milepost 5 is a new concept in development strategies for creating affordable and sustainable work and live/work spaces for artists in a healthy, interactive, community setting. By teaming non-profit and for profit developers, Milepost 5 creates an economic sanctuary that artists will never be priced out of. This unique community will serve not only the residents of Milepost 5, but also the larger arts community as well by providing programming space for performance, visual arts, lectures, workshops, meeting spaces, and studio space.

The Black Experience Project short hike in Hoyt Arboretum
Hoyt Arboretum

The Black Experience Project is a new group started in Portland, OR to talk about the black experience and build community through activities in nature twice a month.

This first meet up will start at the Hoyt Arboretum in Washington park, and will include a short hike of 1 mile or less. It is suggested to bring your own snacks/lunch/water.

There are basic guidelines to this meet up that are crucial for creating a safe space. When in this group, we will not tolerate sexism, homopobia, transphobia, disrespect of pronouns, discrimination on social class, and any other forms of unfair treatment. It is important to also not deny the experience of other black people in this space because you have not shared that same experience.

There is plenty of transit and parking near the starting location, such as the MAX Blue or Red lines.

If there are any concerns about this event or questions, you can send me a message or ask it in the comments of this event.

Bystander Intervention Matters Communities of Color Unite
Artists Repertory Theatre, 1515 SW Morrison

This Summer #DontShootPDX kicks off a hosted series of community focused bystander intervention conversations and direct engagement platforms. This months outreach is to Communities of Color and those of Asian Ancestory. All are welcome though these voices are the ones being centered in this space due to the specific context and necessary experience based subject matter.

There's a history of solidarity amongst the black civil rights movement honored in the Legacy of activist Grace Lee Boggs. Our history and struggles have roots in Americas culture of racism and political social terrorism. The struggles are real though our solidarity needs a renewal and revival of engagement due to the racist violence happening currently in Oregon and across the nation. Let's come together in this series which will continue every 2nd Tuesday at #ART

Each month Bystander Intervention Dialogues and community building panels will inspire and encourage innovative and direct action for those seeking outreach strategies and solutions to ending racial terror and violence. Building Community Matters!

Milenio.org Food Justice Free Farmers Market
Montavilla City Park

In Portland, Big Grocery dominates our food economy while funding political campaigns of those who hyper - police communities of color and the poor and also drive gentrification. This greed leaves thousands displaced and struggling without access to healthy food or resources to get it. Fight back with us by attending this FREE farmers market. Gardeners are needed to donate fresh produce so that we can make it available to families in need and bring it directly to high density areas and to people impacted by displacement. Please bring homegrown produce between 10-12 to the pavilion at Montevilla park. Growers can also pick a few items from the farm trade table if they donate their best to the Free Farmer's Market. No money allowed. This is how we subvert the Big Grocery Big Money Big Politics game and take action to feed our friends and community.

We will also have music, speakers, poets, and resources for empowerment and community building thoughout the day.

How you can help: Are you a person who is struggling to make it right now in Portland, Oregon? Come and join us for this community event. Bring a bag and shop at the FREE Farmer's Market.

Are you a gardener who is willing to donate fresh vegetables to this project? Please message Susan Anglada Bartley or just come to the park and bring what you can share. People willing to volunteer please contact as well.

Interfaith Council of Greater Portland's Beloved Community Forum - September
First United Methodist Church

Do We Still Welcome the Tired, the Poor, & the Huddled Masses?

Is our community safe for new arrivals? Who receives our hospitality and who doesn’t? In an era of DACA being repealed, who are we as a nation of immigrants? Join a diverse cross-section of your neighbors to discuss these basic questions of American identity, all while making new friends and deepening your community relationships. As with each Beloved Community Forum, we will welcome a community leader to share their vision of "what they are for,” and offer us all a chance to discern and discuss what we are for as well. Refreshments will be provided

Our September gathering will be led by Ronault LS “Polo” Catalani, City of Portland Immigrant Integration Policy Advisor. Polo is also leading the New Portlanders Policy Commission, a commission to advise the City on policies and practices to integrate immigrant and refugee communities’ voices and needs into the provision of City services, City decision-making and civic engagement in Portland, and to seek constructive relationships with City Council. Mr. Catalani will reflect on the realities of human migration, the relatively new imposition of borders, and the promise of embracing the Beloved Community.
