Join us for a conversation about race, power, and justice with Eric K. Ward and Rukaiyah Adams.

Snacks and conversation will follow the program. Minors welcome when accompanied by an adult. Doors at 5:30 p.m.

Eric K. Ward is a longtime civil rights strategist and philanthropist. He began his civil rights career in Oregon at a time when the white nationalist movement was engaged in violent paramilitary activity that sought to undermine democratic governance in the Pacific Northwest. Most recently a program officer for the Ford Foundation, Ward returned to Oregon in 2017 to lead Western States Center, a Portland-based nonprofit that works with leaders in the West to harness regional advocacy to reduce inequality and advance opportunity.

Rukaiyah Adams is chief investment officer of Meyer Memorial Trust. She serves on the board of directors of Oregon Public Broadcasting and as chair of the Oregon Investment Council, the board that manages approximately $90 billion for the Oregon Public Employees Retirement Fund. She is a driving force of Albina Vision, an effort to develop a new, inclusive neighborhood in Portland’s Rose Quarter, where the majority-Black community of Albina existed before it was razed to build Memorial Coliseum.
