    Jade Project Groundbreaking

    Exciting times just around the corner! You are invited to join in the Groundbreaking Ceremony at the Jade/APANO Multicultural Space, the last official event before demolition and redevelopment of the old furniture store on the corner of SE 82nd Ave. and Division begins. The old furniture store is making room for a mixed-use development of 48 affordable housing units, public plaza, multicultural center, and office space.

    Join APANO, along with the Roots to Rise honorary committee, Rose CDC, Metro, the Portland Housing Bureau, Home Forward, Oregon Housing & Community Services, SERA Architects, O'Neill Walsh Community Builders and the Housing Development Center for this historical event. We will have a light program of speakers, and have many friends and community members to celebrate.

    This event is part of the Roots to Rise campaign, and we are here because of the many ways you and our communities have come together for this once in a generation project. This event is also open to the public, so please share this freely and widely.

    Light food and beverages will be provided.

    We want to explore and document what it's like growing up in Portland and living in East Portland communities, and to capture our families' experiences of displacement and resilience. This project will challenge the notions people have of Portland and of young people of color. We are interested in flipping the narrative and empowering young people of color, as well as creating a safe space in our community to celebrate our diverse identities.

    Come and celebrate our hard work on this project! We want to build community with YOU!

    Free food. Free admission. Good vibes.

    In addition to the photo essay collection, there will be amazing performances by youth and the community!
