Your donation makes the movement possible
A Movement of Movements, OPAL's annual fundraising event, holds space for BIPOC community members to reflect on the struggles that our movement is built on. We invited members of OPAL Bus Riders Unite (BRU) and Youth Environmental Justice Alliance (YEJA) as well as dozens of local and statewide base-building organizations like APANO, Forward Together, PCUN and Oregon Just Transition Alliance partner organizations.
Our performers, all local movement leaders of color, read from speeches of Black, Indigenous and queer people of color and took the crowd on a journey in understanding the humanity in each other as we work to change a system that is not designed to benefit the most marginalized in society. We are grateful to those who were able to join us in community.
Thank you for believing in the work to end environmental racism and build environmental justice in Oregon. Together, we will achieve a just transition to safer, healthier environments in the places we live, work, learn, pray and play.
