    Understanding Our Implicit Bias: Who, Me? Yes, You. (Hillsboro Reads Closing Keynote)

    Our society has encouraged colorblind ideology without taking into consideration the impact it has on people of color. While the intentions may be good, this approach to race, racism, and race relations doesn’t change the fact that in the 21st century race still matters significantly. Statements like “We are all human” and “I don’t notice race” are actually more likely to cause the very harm these well-intentioned statements, said by well-meaning people are trying to avoid. In her keynote, Dr. Hollins will discuss the research on implicit bias, propose alternative ways of thinking, and share strategies for mitigating the impact.

    Held at the Civic Center Auditorium.

    The book chosen for Hillsboro Reads 2017: The Other Wes Moore: One Name Two Fates by Wes Moore

    Defend DACA - 800 Candle Vigil

    We are lighitng 800 candles on October 6th to raise local awareness for the 800,000 DACA recipients - 1 candle will symbolically represent 1,000 DACA recipients - in the United States. The executive decision to rescind DACA not only impacts hundreds of thousands of youth across the country, but hundreds here in Washington County. October 6th is the first day the program prevents recipients from renewing their permits.

    We hope to count on your support to light a candle and stand in solidarity with Dreamers across the country and in our community.

La decision ejecutiva para remover el programa no solamente impacta a jovenes alrededor del pais sino aqui en nuestra comunidad tambien.

    Esperamos contar con su apoyo para encender una vela y demostrar solidaridad con los DREAMERS/recipientes de DACA en nuestra comunidad.

  • Meet and Greet with Maria Hinojosa in Hillsboro! Advance registration

    We are excited to announce that Maria Hinojosa, nationally-recognized journalist is coming to Washington County on Friday! VAN, the City of Hillsboro and Centro Cultural are co-hosting her from 5 - 6:45pm at the Hillsboro Civic Center.

    A little bit about Maria…. For 25 years, Maria Hinojosa has helped tell America's untold stories and brought to light unsung heroes in America and abroad. In April 2010, Hinojosa launched The Futuro Media Group with the mission to produce multi-platform, community-based journalism that gives critical voice to the voiceless by harnessing the power of independent media to tell stories that are overlooked or under reported by traditional media.

    As the anchor and executive producer of the long-running weekly NPR show Latino USA, and as anchor of the Emmy Award-winning talk show Maria Hinojosa: One-on-One from WGBH/La Plaza, Hinojosa has informed millions of Americans about the fastest growing group in our country. Previously, a Senior Correspondent for NOW on PBS, and currently, a rotating anchor for Need to Know, Hinojosa has reported hundreds of important stories—from the immigrant work camps in NOLA after Katrina, to teen girl victims of sexual harassment on the job, to Emmy Award-winning stories of the poor in Alabama.

    This casual event will include social time and an address from Maria, along with other local leaders.

    Please join us at our Defend DACA Vigil afterwards! https://www.facebook.com/events/488445261530634
